Ware Neck Lighthouse is a newly constructed, custom built home located on the North River looking out to wide views of Mobjack Bay. This residence has a very unique building system reinforced for severe weather with a marine exterior and engineered timber interior. Featuring post and beam construction, the home is built on a galvanized steel piling foundation and designed to withstand any weather it may encounter. There are expansive living spaces with decking all around off the main living area and the lookout. A clear pneumatic tube elevator takes occupants from the ground level to the top level lookout room with stops in between! Antique heart pine floors on the main level, wide pine floors on the second level, and shiplap wood walls throughout.  The kitchen has custom nautical cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances.  With over 6 acres and a 4-6′ MLW pier, this is a prime waterfront location. Truly a one-of-a-kind home, definitely a “must see”!
