I don't believe that I have posted photos of the station from our visit back in late December. The owners were not home at the time so we took our photos from the road, except for two that I took from the neighbors yard after requesting to do so.

This is the station from the street side.

The station from the beach side. The owners added on to this side of the building.

There was a Christmas tree in watch room, but you can't see it in this photo. A good way to decorate such a room for the holidays, IMHO.

Also, not the excape ladder from the second floor. It is not something that I have seen at other stations. I wonder if this is something that built in with the design of the 1882-Type stations?

Stephen, I was lucky enough to get to see this home and former LSS inside and out last August and it is absolutely beautiful! And the location isn't too shabby either!!

Your photos bring back some great memories of that visit--thank you! :D

Thanks for sharing these shots ...

From the watchtower, to the eaves, down to the individual windows, the structure teems with such an architecturally appealing style .... This is one I would put on my list to visit ...

Thanks again

Believe those who search for the truth ...
Doubt those who find it ...
