A period property occupying a stunning corner of the Anglesey coast has been placed on the market for an eye-watering £1.7m. Number two Lighthouse Cottages at Black Point in Penmon was originally one of two houses used by the operators of the nearby Trwyn Du lighthouse.
The Grade-II listed building dates back to 1839 and was likely built by Trinity House engineer James Walker, who also designed the lighthouse over which the property looks. It was owned for a period by the Bulkeley Estate before it was sold in the early 1990’s,
Since then it has undergone a comprehensive renovation, including a complete upgrade to the interior as well more structural works, offering a luxurious home to anyone who can meet the asking price. The house, which is constructed primarily of dressed limestone under a slate roof, consists of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a sitting room, lounge and dining room, study and an impressive kitchen/breakfast room.

Outside, there is a walled garden, decked courtyard and a single garage which is attached to the main house. But as impressive as the property itself is, the main attraction here is undoubtedly the location and the striking scenery surrounding it.
There are not many properties that come close to number two Lighthouse Cottages when it comes to location and that is clearly reflected in the price. With breathtaking views of Trwyn Du Lighthouse, Puffin Island, across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia, the house has some of the most dramatic views on offer in Wales.
