Check Out This New York House That’s Shaped Like a Lighthouse
This New York property is nothing short of unique - a lighthouse that has been converted into an actual house!
Perhaps even more interesting than the fact that this lighthouse has been turned into a house is the fact that it is located in New York's Adirondack Mountains and it has no waterfront, but small details, right?
If you've ever driven to Old Forge to visit Enchanted Forest Water Safari, you've likely driven right by this gem as it is located only 12 miles south of the charming town.
Located on Lighthouse Loop Road, the lighthouse can be found in the town of Forestport. Although there is no waterfront, the house does come with lake rights to Otter Lake which includes rights to the beach and dock which are only a few steps away.
Constructed in 1914, the lighthouse was once a restaurant and store for nearby campers who camped at the Lighthouse Otter Lake Cabins.
The lighthouse is listed for sale with David Dunn of Herron Realty at $217,000 and includes an ensuite master and a guest bedroom along with two full bathrooms, and loads of interestingly shaped rooms!
So much history has been crammed into the 1,280-square-foot property which sits on a 0.25-acre lot at 14121 New York State Route 28 in Forestport. The scenic area is filled with activities year-round, so the lighthouse could definitely be used as a full-year residence and it even includes a wood-burning stove for cold winter days.
