The apartments were originally created in 1987 and were built on the basis that planning consent was given that the flats could only be occupied as holiday homes and cannot be used as permanent residences.

Harbour Lights is centrally located within Hugh Town and close to all the shops, restaurant, harbour and other amenities. This particular flat has a convenient location on the first floor with lounge and bedroom windows all facing south.

The flat at Harbour Lights has a distinct advantage of a direct beach access at the rear of the property through a communal library and washing/drying facilities (at a charge) in the main hallway.

The flat was completely refurbished in 2009 to a high standard.

The flat is approached through the main front door of Harbour Lights into:
