The Skinny: Though this dramatically sited home on the rugged coast of Northern Oregon has all the familiar trappings of a lighthouse (remote cliff-top location, windswept grounds, a tower with unimpeded ocean views) it is in fact doing absolutely nothing to keep unsuspecting ships from inadvertently dashing themselves against the rocks guarding the mouth of Nestucca Bay. But it's still kind of awesome! Setting aside the absolutely inexplicable décor choices, the house has plenty to offer the nautically minded, including a mahogany, wenge and purpleheart lighthouse observation tower accessible via a wooden spiral staircase, and tremendous ocean, bay, and river views. In addition to the cedar-clad main house, the 25-acre grounds also feature a handful of outbuildings, beach access, and parking for four cars. The four-bedroom home, which has been on and off the market for much of the last four years, is asking $7.998M, a PriceChop of $1.5M from its original ask.
