Ojai estate description

Located in the heart of downtown Ojai in the prestigious 'upper Foothill' area, this property boasts old world, craftsman style construction with hardwood and travertine floors; granite and slate countertops; and, custom knotty alder doors, windows and cabinets. The 'Mission' style decor is complimented by fabulous furnishings; the latest in appliances and features, including a kitchen fit for any chef; and, an unequaled audio/visual system throughout the home.

Three large bedrooms are all equipped with walk-in closets and private bathrooms, each bathroom designed with unique, custom tiled floors and walls. The master suite is beyond belief, overlooking the backyard and includes a private Jacuzzi tub for two. Add the formal living room (with fireplace), dining room, family room (with surround sound), separate laundry, attached two car garage, and you have an unequaled Ojai retreat for your private and quiet use.

The open floor plan opens out into a huge backyard overlooking a salt water pool, spa and waterfall, all adorned with hundreds of feet of hand-chiseled rock walls, lush landscaping, complete with a gorgeous array of seasonal colors and large formal lawn. Relax in the cabana next to the pool or on the spacious pool decks, or stroll down the rose covered arbor towards the orchard. Venture into the orchard with peach, plum, nectarine, apricot, Pixie tangerines, orange and avocado trees. Pick all you can eat, even try the grapes, raspberries or blackberries if in season.

This home is for the discerning traveler, wanting to experience the best of Ojai. It is not a 'party house.' It is the owner’s second home with quality and detail reflected everywhere.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: The owner is a local businessman, actively involved in myriad civic activities. Originally from Southern CA, Bob has been in Ojai for 15 years and also owns a home in Aspen, Colorado where he now spends much of his time.

Why the Owner Chose Ojai:
The home and property was immediately perfect for my goal of creating a custom, craftsman estate. In 2003, I began the 8 year process of a complete (down to the studs) remodel with all new electrical, plumbing, doors, windows, floors and everything else you could dream up. The entire yard was dozed and recreated from scratch to establish a 'resort-like' atmosphere. It worked!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Proximity to Ojai, privacy, serenity, the grounds and the warm, cozy feeling, couched in decadent luxury.
