As you head north over Cape Lookout and drop into the Netarts Bay estuary you come upon a very incongruous house built on a sliver of land between the coastal road and the bay. The house itself is a bit over the top in comparison to the older homes that are in the area, but that's to be expected I suppose.

But the clincher is the complete fencing in of the property to presumably keep out interlopers.

Actually, the real clincher is the razor wire that tops the cyclone fence to establish an impregnable compound...I wonder if they have a bomb shelter?

I bet that house is empty a lot of the time. It's sad on a lot of levels...

I need to know the story behind this place. I've been speculating for years (and always honk when I drive by):

1. Ex-mafia stoolie just out of witness protection program.

2. Rare sushi dealer who has to protect his fish.

3. Paranoid android.

I know there must be loaded weapons strategically located all over the compound and people willing to use them.

I love that place. I still don't understand why its like that. There was a thread about it a long time ago on the OSP. Any info?

Growing Wasabi maybe?
