Considered one of the most photogenic lighthouses on North Devon’s dramatic coastline, Grade II listed and 59-foot tall Hartland Point was built in 1874. It was permanently manned until 1984 when it became automated and at that point the keepers’ dwellings were demolished to make way for a helipad.

 

Overlooking the Bristol Channel, the now decommissioned lighthouse comes with living accommodation that includes a living room, kitchen and three bedrooms. There is mains electricity and water pumped from a borehole on adjoining farmland. Sold on a freehold basis, the property stands in 15 acres and comes with a restrictive covenant preventing use as a café or tearoom.

Of the lighthouse Richard Addington of selling agents Savills commented:

 

“Selling a lighthouse is a once in a career opportunity. This is an absolutely unique property that I think will appeal to someone who has strong views about what they like and don’t like. The views are second to none, and thought it’s hard to get to, it’s wonderfully private”.

 

“I would imagine that whoever buys it will want to change it. There’s an opportunity to do something really funky here”.
