Construction of the lighthouse was authorized by none other than President George Washington and bears the distinction of being the first public works project of the United States. The (in)famous pirate Captain Kidd is said to have buried treasure at the foot of the lighthouse, but it's yet to be found. This red and white lighthouse is a fully functional birdhouse featuring two nest boxes with 1 1/4 inch openings (one in the lighthouse itself and one in the keeper's cottage), a removable back for yearly cleaning, drainage, ventilation and unpainted interiors. The entire structure is built upon a river stone foundation and a custom-fit mounting plate makes installation a snap!
Celebrate a piece of American architecture in your yard with this Montauk Point Lighthouse Bird House This detailed remake of the Montauk Point lighthouse in Long Island, New York, brings a touch of the eastern seaboard to any setting. The tall, red and white striped lighthouse shape creates a focal point in your yard, complete with a black, wood shingled roof and river rock base.
An octagonal cap on the lighthouse has clear plastic panels creating windows, bringing more realism and style to this home. A traditionally styled keepers house rests next to the lighthouse, and its architectural precision lends amazing detail to the piece. Both the white cottage and striped lighthouse have a 1.25 diameter opening, creating two separate homes and enticing smaller birds to roost in them. A ladder beneath each entry helps nestlings reach the exit, and the unpainted interior remains safe for the birds.Both compartments also have a drainage hole in the center of their base, helping nests stay dry. The keepers house roost has a removable back panel, for nest checks and seasonal cleanouts, and the lighthouse removes from its wooden base with two screws for annual cleaning. Crafted of wood, this replica adds a dramatic touch to your home, and the included mounting plate allows the home to attach to a wooden 4 x 4 post (not included) in moments. Note: Should you want to preserve the finish (paint) of this home, you should select a polyurethane product that is recommended for marine use (UV Rated) that will not turn the white paint yellow. You should expect that once left outside, the product will weather and require refinishing.
