Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.

-“The Tempest”

Along with the assorted houseboats, condos, view properties and vintage homes we’ve shown in these pages, we’ve also been collecting property listings that are somewhat off-kilter.

This week, we offer a blended entry of houses “rich and strange.” Rich, as in million-dollar river views, indoor pools and 80-acre spreads. Strange, as in indoor boulders, church choir balconies and Middle Earthen coziness.

We range from an expansive property in Rickreall to a reworked church in Lake Oswego, from a prime parcel on the Columbia River to a Lake Oswego house where a rockslide seems to have ended in the family room.

Do you know of unusual properties that are on or have recently been on the market? If you’d like us to highlight one, please send an email to Janet Eastman, who is taking over this feature. You can reach her at jeastman@oregonian.com.
