Location

A place to unplug and connect with real life!

Nestled in a scenic valley surrounded by orange groves and natural beauty, Ojai is easy to explore -- by foot, bike, trolley or even horseback -- while taking in the sights along the way.

Explore miles of scenic trails. Visit local farms to pick produce or see how olive oil is made. Or stay close to town … and enjoy shopping, dining and an array of cultural offerings.

Be inspired by art, go wine tasting, indulge in a spa treatment, or play a round of golf. The choice is yours.

Fabulous weather makes our town a popular year-round destination for golf and tennis. The courses are challenging and incredibly beautiful. And for tennis – well, let's just say we were named the second best tennis town in the U.S.

The magnificent climate and natural beauty have fostered Ojai's reputation as a place to restore and rejuvenate health. That heritage thrives today at our world-renowned spas and resorts.

Ojai is a small town brimming with possibilities!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I fell in love with this little town of Ojai 12 years ago when I needed to get out of the city. I had lived in Los Angels for 15 years and had a 9 year-old daughter that I felt needed to finish growing up in a small town. I had grown up in small towns in Texas and knew the benefits.

Why the Owner Chose Ojai, CA, USA:
I have been in the landscaping business for 35 years and found this piece of property that had views to die for. It was absolutely the perfect canvas to build my dream home and never run out of space to create rooms of gardens.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Offering breathtaking views that afford the luxury and serenity of a Tuscan holiday. Steps from hiking trails and horseback riding. Beautiful citrus and fruit tree orchards. So private that you feel in complete seclusion from the outside world.
