A lighthouse converted into a home has been sold after two months on the market.
Burnham-on-Sea’s High Lighthouse, in Berrow Road, was sold for an undisclosed fee by estate agent CJ Hole.

The grade-II listed building was up for sale for £525,000.
A spokesman for CJ Hole said: “We can confirm it has been sold subject to contracts, but we cannot say the sale price of the purchasers, nor its intended use.”
The landmark was built in 1830 and is 30 metres tall.
In the 1950s, the lighthouse became one of the first in England to be automated.
After it was deactivated in the 1990s, it was converted into a three-bedroom home with eight floors and one circular room on each tier with views of up to 22 miles on a clear day across the Bristol Channel.
It has maintained many original features, including a private golden gravel driveway.
