Ojai estate description

The Elegant Studio is located in the east end of Ojai on a seven acre estate. The 5000 sq. foot stone and clapboard historical estate home was built in 1887 by Theodore Salisbury Woolsey, a Professor of International Law and the Dean of Yale University. The seven acres belonging to the Woolsey Estate are shaded by ancient oak trees and guarded by a stone wall built by the Chinese over a century ago to keep the land from flooding.

As you wander the grounds you will discover a horse-shoe pit among the many flowering gardens and ornamental trees.

Just one mile from downtown, you will find that our Elegant Studio will give you the utmost in privacy and relaxation, not to mention the convenience of being within walking distance to town and close to the many hiking and biking trails our beautiful little valley offers.

As you leave The Elegant Studio, you will take with you fond memories of your warm and peaceful stay at this historical estate from a bygone era where leisure-living still exists.

One visit will never be enough once you have experienced the beauty and tranquil ambiance of this historical landmark, you will want to return again and again.
