Standing watch over the sea, lighthouses are often associated with lonely living — shining beacons that, unfortunately, don’t accommodate a lot of people. Traditionally, one light keeper (and maybe a spouse) would keep watch over the property while taking up a modest residence inside. However, as times have changed, so have lighthouses: Many new lighthouses are fully automated and require no hands-on attention. That means that lighthouses of years past are free to be put up for sale and converted into whatever the owners desire. These UK lighthouses have been transformed into incredible homes and rental properties, places that would be absolutely amazing to live. See some of them below — and just try to imagine what life would be like with a view like this.
