Lighthouse-Inspired Waterfront Residence
There's something so alluring about a lighthouse, isn't there? Some of the oldest structures in America, these coastal landmarks make us think of swashbuckling seafarers navigating majestic ships to shore. Designed to resemble a lighthouse, today's waterfront home offers a bit of that nostalgic appeal we love.

Set on 150 feet of beach frontage adjacent to a 65-acre estuary, this shingle-style home's stand-out feature is its hexagon-shaped tower facing the bay. A spiral staircase winds to the very top of the tower, where an observatory lined with large windows provides 360-degree views of beaches, wetlands and wildlife.
The rest of the home is equally impressive -- the current owners spent $900,000 renovating the house, doubling its square footage to create a spacious, modern residence with a sleek granite kitchen, a media room and three master suites. Check out the photo gallery below.
