To The Lighthouse: Reston Resident Buys Lakefront Property A Bit Out of Town

lighthouse.jpgIf you can't find the right lakefront property in Reston, you could always follow the lead of Sheila Consaul and do the next best thing. The Reston resident purchased a government surplus lighthouse on Lake Erie in an online auction and will use it as a summer home.

Sheila Consaul has officially taken possession of the Fairport Harbor West Lighthouse and now the real work begins in turning the iconic structure into a summer home.

“I was out to see the lighthouse both in September and October and I’m very excited to get on with the restoration,” said Consaul, a marketing executive from Reston, Va.
Consaul has a fancy website and Facebook page for the lighthouse, if you're into such things.

Personally, we could see moving the whole thing to Lake Thoreau, maybe right on the dock at South Lakes Village Center. That bright light would definitely keep something like this from happening again.
