The Sark Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1913 to guide vessels passing through the Channel Islands away from the pinnacle of Blanchard Rock. The white octagonal tower of the lighthouse rises from the flat-roofed service and dwelling rooms, the whole complex clings to the steep face of the cliff which rises above. The lighthouse became automated in 1994 and the station was re-engineered in 2017 and is now monitored and controlled from Essex.
This recently refurbished 3-bedroom apartment offers the unique opportunity to live within an operating lighthouse with spectacular views across to the west coast of France, Alderney and Jersey.
