Offers in the region of £1,250,000
Converted Lighthouse For Sale St Anns Head
Although the lighthouse at St Ann's Head in Pembrokeshire dates from 1714, the present tower was built in 1841 and helped protect ships from the dreaded Crow Rock and Toes lying off Linney Head. The Old Lighthouse has been sympathetically converted to create a comfortable family house with plenty of nautical details (such as brass portholes) to enchant those with an interest in the sea. It boasts five bedrooms including a romantic double bedroom in the tower. The observation lounge at the top of the tower allows the stunning sunsets over the ocean to be fully appreciated as windows on three sides give almost 360 degree sea views. You could almost be in the middle of the sea!. And for those who can't bear to be away from water even when they're indoors, there's a stunning indoor swimming pool and sauna. more
