Beach Walk - Part Two, Lighthouse on a Farm Estate

As promised, we're heading back to Leadbetter Farms today for the rest of the tour. (Part 1 - Beach Walk)  So after a bit of research, we learned that the private lighthouse, which can be seen for miles away, actually houses a water tower and has a few stories of living space within.  The estate is situated on 600 acres and the lighthouse stretches 140 feet into the air.

We encourage you to visit the links at the bottom of the article for photos of the interiors of the buildings. They are amazing, whimsical and the most unique we've ever seen.

The main house is a barn-like structure which offers the charm of a Cape Cod.

The main house from the side (the only vantage point we had up close).  We think we spy a swing on the deck; what better way to take advantage of the ocean view? 

The owner, Craig Tillotson, has incorporated a sense of whimsy throughout the property with dragon weather vanes, sculptures, and gargoyles.

We love textures - they make things interesting!

More divine textures of the exterior plus a wood door...swoon.

A private lake with gazebo and Adirondack chairs waiting to be occupied.

The entrance to the lighthouse tower with custom railings; which appear to be made from solid iron.  We have a bit of a crush on all of the exterior lighting fixtures too.

Would you like to have an elite getaway at this retreat?
