The lighthouse buyer would have to have the cliff stability checked, otherwise could be a long slide into the sea.

The house boat would be ok, except for the river flooding, what happens then?

The control tower would have to be a cash purchase as non-standard construction - no mortgage.

The oast houses look great.

Manor farm looks like two big air raid shelters.  The box in Long Melford has to be a joke for that sort of money, have more garden on a 60's estate!

 

Think I'll stick with the farm house, built in 1746 and still owned by the same family - mine!

I used to stay near here frost on the inside of windows in winter  even with heater at window storm doors required for the rain, sea lashing in & my house was situated further away from the shore I was only snowed out of my house once in 7 years but that is the exception i have also driven along the shore road from innellian to the lighthouse with the waves crashing over the top of my old car, but saying all this it is one of the most beautiful places in the world the changing seasons are wonderful I stayed a few more miles down the road at the nato depot If I could afford it I would buy this without hesitation from r w hurlstone
