^^ If that house is also a B&B, I'd pay premium money to stay there. Nice architectural addition, to be sure.

Perhaps not a lighthouse- it looks more like an airport control tower, including RADAR. There is a place for seaplanes on the chart, but it isn't in any airspace that would have a control tower.
There is a nice cathedral in the background. ItThe tower is on the "President Wilson quay". (Edited to avoid confusion about what on the quay)

There used to be a tower like that in Sydney harbour. They called it 'The Pill' because it controlled all the berths in the harbour.

Is that the one one that fell on hard times (2015), and was discontinued when the berthing rate fell dramatically due to the global recession? :p

That's the one. I didn't know why it was demolished but noticed it was gone when I went to Sydney last year, so thanks for the back-story.

How did they "carefully deconstruct" a concrete tower other than using explosives?

I wasn't in Sydney when it was 'carefully deconstructed' but I'd assume it was dismantled in sections that were lowered by crane. Unless 87m (285 ft) is too high for cranes. I don't know enough about cranes but I reckon that would have been how it was built. The area has been developed as parkland. There seems to have been some controversy at the time over whether it should have been demolished as an ugly eyesore or retained as part of Sydney's maritime heritage and a representative example of 1960s Australian concrete brutalist architecture, and used to allow people to experience its sweeping views over Sydney harbour without having to climb the bridge.
