The downside of making a lighthouse home | Chappaqua Homes

A house on the beach is enticing, but what about a lighthouse on the beach? More private owners are buying lighthouses to live in, which offers them a well-situated beachfront property and a full view of the coast. However, your image of this picturesque home could change once the blaring foghorn goes off. The Wall Street Journal has more:

“I do wonder if people know what they’re getting into,” said Richard Ventrone, an architect who has restored five Rhode Island lighthouses for the state’s Department of Transportation. “You’re hanging out in a tin can. If you get a nasty storm that comes through, you could be stuck out there.”
