While all ocean front homes are stunning, there is something about having your home perched on a cliff high over the ocean that takes ocean front living to a whole other another dimension of breathtaking. Homes on a cliff tend to capture a different feeling then living at sea level. Some describe it as “other worldly.” While you might not have the ocean right out your door, these houses offer a view that places you at the edge of the world and in the heavens all at the same time. -L.G.
