The lighthouse is cut off by the sea at high tides, although it is accessible on foot at low tide. The dunes on which the lighthouse was originally built have retreated inland over the years and it now sits in the middle of the beach. Posted Image Read more...

The "ghosts" I don't mind but the fact that it is quite low and the sea seems to be encroaching on its doorstep, well .... I wonder if the paranormal tales are a distraction from the real issue that it is sinking into rising sea levels :w00t: .  Outside of that, I would love to live in a converted lighthouse, what fun.

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I have found where the property is listed, they appear to have left off the part about it being haunted.... however the photo at the top of the page appears to have some sort of robot or something stood looking out to sea on the balcony......     http://img.findaprop...0292461.pdf?v=1

It would be horrible to be running behind just a bit behind schedule and miss the incoming tide...without a boat you wouldn't be able to get into your house for a half a day until the tide heads back out...

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

I know this beach well, and you wouldn't be able to reach it, even with a boat at high tide, I don't think it would be deep enough. If you built up the causeway a bit, I think access would be good all day. I wouldn't expect much privacy though, it's a very busy beach....
Still I'd love to buy it!!
:yes:

I wonder if it could be moved to the most inland edge of the property?

I wouldn't worry about the spooks... But the notion of the water coming up to the foot of my home would be sort of disconcerting. And people wandering around my property would be kind of off putting as well. I would be the kind of jacknape that would put up a fence to keep the weirdos out, lol.

Still, it would be pretty cool to have a home in a lighthouse :)

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

This really interests me....the potential is enormous from renting to fishermen, to renting it to paranormal investigators etc :yes:

Where is that agents address again?  :unsure2:

Bit limited what you could use it for, I see you can't get to it whilst the tied is in. Imagine living in it, you would constantly be looking at your watch thinking if I miss the bus or get stuck in traffic I am on the street for the night.
