Lighthouse towers rarely come onto the open market and those that are decommissioned are typically found in wild and far flung locations, so owning one at the gateway to the Westcountry is opportunity not too be missed.
 
Burnham High Lighthouse, a Grade II* listed local landmark towers above the small seaside town of Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset. It stands 110 feet (33 meters) tall and comprises eight floors with one circular room on each floor. From the spectacular lantern room which houses the original fresnel lenses and features a polished copper domed roof and glass floor you can see for 22 miles on a clear day across the Bristol Channel beyond Cardiff Bay and as far as Lynmouth in Devon. This unique home is packed with original features, nautical antiques and character.
 
The entrance to the tower is via the original solid oak front door with its bronze porthole. On this floor is the living room with a brick vaulted domed ceiling and original flagstone floor and the utility room with sink, worktops and also a shower room/Guest cloakroom to wash off the sand from a day at the beach. A two part stable door leads out towards the rear. The small plot of grass and raised flowerbeds is currently owned by the neighbour who allows access for maintenance. This would make a fantastic, hidden rear garden to the lighthouse tower and can be purchased separately for £20,000.
 
The staircase of solid granite and brick is enclosed by a curved wall and leads to the upper floors. On the first floor is a south facing double bedroom with granite flagstone floor and painted ceiling and has a partially enclosed ensuite shower room.
 
There is a double bedroom with exposed granite flooring and original ceiling on the second floor with an ensuite. The amazing family bathroom featuring a free standing Victorian roll top bath is on the third floor. On the fourth floor is the third double bedroom with far reaching views of the pier at Weston Super Mare some 12 miles away. This bedroom is also equipped with an electric shower open to the room and the rest of the facilities are tucked underneath the stairs.
 
The fifth floor is given over to the light and airy dining room which has an open plan feel and the views upwards to the rest of the lighthouse to the lantern room via a mezzanine are spectacular.
The design allows daylight to flood the space through a toughened glass floor.
 
From here a spiral staircase leads up to the galley kitchen on the floor above. The fully fitted kitchen enjoys unrivalled views of Somerset and Exmoor but also towards the sea and coast. It is cleverly designed to best make use of the space with cupboards set within the thick outer walls.
 
The Lantern Room is an incredible space, accessed from the kitchen. The views through the curved diamond shaped panels of the lantern room are simply breathtaking and if visitors are feeling bold, a doorway leads outside onto the granite balcony outside which is the perfect spot for watching the ships enter the Bristol Channel whilst sipping a glass of wine. This balcony quite simply has the best views of ANY property in the whole of Somerset. One can look down upon seagulls in flight watch the golf at the links course which is located only a few yards away. On a clear day most of the Severn and South Wales is visible and on New Year’s Eve, Bonfire night or during the Somerset Carnival season -firework displays in several cities can be enjoyed simultaneously!

Outside
The lighthouse tower is accessed by a private gravel driveway which offers parking for up to three cars and a seating area to the front of the property.

Holiday Letting Potential
The tower has enjoyed great success as a holiday rental property in the past running at well in excess of 90% occupancy. The unique nature of the building being an actual lighthouse tower conversion (not keeper’s cottages) means Burnham High Lighthouse is virtually unique as an offering in the current leisure market.

Unaudited financial statements showing two years’ worth of bookings and rental revenue can be examined by potential bidders upon request.
