If you have a down payment on a $249,000 property and a secret dream to help boats find their way safely home after short (or long) journeys, then do we have good news for you!

One of the most-viewed properties this week on realtor.com was the Wolf Trap Lighthouse, an honest-to-goodness three-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot lighthouse in Mathews County, Virginia. More “in the ocean” than “on the ocean.” With a real Coast Guard-maintained light!

Real talk: This property needs some work. More real talk: It is a freaking lighthouse for sale for $249,000; if you expect it to be in pristine condition, then you need your reality lenses polished.
