A curious house on an island of rock. A peculiar house over 100 years is preserved in good condition. The funny thing is that it is done on a small island of solid rock.
Clingstone mansion was built in 1905, for a cost of roughly $36,000, by J.S. Lovering Wharton, a distant cousin of 79-year-old Henry Wood, the present owner of the house. He and his ex-wife bought it in 1961, for $3,600 and managed to bring it back to life after it had been abandoned for two decades.
