Breathtaking Blufftop Estate
Block Island: a longtime summer vacation spot that has attracted the likes of Bill Clinton, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Though it was just built in 2010, this home dramatically positioned on Block Island's Mohegan Bluffs looks like it could have been there to greet the town's very first distinguished visitor. Its shingle-style architecture lends that classic New England charm that just can't quite be duplicated anywhere else.
Location: Block Island, R.I.

Inside, the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home is casually elegant with hardwood floors, crisp white walls and beautiful moldings. We wouldn't mind holing up in the cozy master suite, which comes with a private deck and a sitting room that can be closed off to create a fourth bedroom. Now, if you'll excuse us, there's an ocean view and a couple of Adirondack chairs calling our name.
