8 Spectacular Ocean Settings

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Newport is starting to get a bustle on, which means that the “summer season” is about to begin (Memorial Day weekend). So my thoughts are turning away from spring raindrops and thinking of water in a diffrent way…the diverse and picture-worthy settings of the homes along the ocean. As you see in the image above, they are nothing if not gorgeous!

  1. Stunning settings! What I’d give to live on the water once again–maybe when we build the retirement cottage. Hope your day is lovely.

  2. GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS!!! I always want to move to Newport after reading one of your posts.

  3. Simply stunning homes and views…love all the classic home styles with their many creative additions and unique architectural features! Also love to view the unique settings and landscaping. Really appreciate your site, Bettie! We have just bought a Tudor styled home and are working on landscaping plans and the addition of some classic architectural features to the home itself. Thanks for posting this!
