Space 2,000 sq. ft.

About the property

One home set on a 24 acres renovated to Architectural Digest std

The Black Walnut Ranch contains two buildings including the main farm house designer renovated to exacting standards and features a stone fireplace, gourmet kitchen and two bedrooms, a cozy master and a bunk room for four.

This quintessential farm house property has the look and feel you have been dreaming of to spend some time creating family memories or romantic weekend getaways. Properties such as these are rarely available for rent and more often treasured by their owners exclusively to share only with close friends and loved ones. The second building is a charming old barn that will one day serve as the property's pool house but is a lovely visual addition and has be known to be used for doing yoga and hosting small dinners.

There are hiking trails, and a State Park nearby and the property is only 7 minutes drive to downtown Ojai where you can enjoy the local restaurants, tasting rooms, and seasonal festivals. You will enjoy the extraordinary views at sunset of the Topa Topa mountain range while sitting on your very own porch swing and sipping a glass

of sauvignon blanc. Yummy smells from the kitchen will enliven your senses as you ring the farm house bell to call everyone to the table for the evening meal.

Cherished Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our families were in awe at the beauty this ranch introduced us to. This will be a cherished stay in all of our lives, and memories were created from sunrise to sunset. Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy the ranch and surrounding scenery. Gratefully, the Moore’s, Largent’s, Cobb’s

PERFECTION! Black Walnut Ranch - will return again!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a lovely 3 nights as a guest at Black Walnut Ranch. Everything about this property was sublime, fantastic - the bedding, the views, the layout, the side-barn (used for dining) + easy drive into the town. It was amazing to have 2 kitchens (one in each house). The property is very well stocked with pots and pans + dishes and silverware etc... Honestly, this property ROCKED and I was thrilled to be a guest here. I cannot imagine a more beautiful setting!

We wanted to stay forever!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property and houses. Everything you could need. We loved our stay so much and wish we had more time to relax on the porch swing and check out the amazing views of Ojai mountains. The property manager is so helpful and is there if you need her but is not intrusive to your stay. Plenty of parking. We will be back!

I found this house two weeks before my 50th birthday and it looked like exactly the kind of place I wanted to go for this big event. But I had no idea what to expect. (You never know if the pictures are going to do it justice.) As soon as we drove up the drive to the house I knew it was going to be perfect. The farm house was perfect. Perfectly renovated, perfectly decorated and perfectly appointed. I loved all the original details and the beds were very comfy. There were ten of us. We cooked all of our meals, played games, lounged on the porch and in front of the fireplace but the real highlight was the gorgeous dinner we had in the barn. It looked like it was out of a magazine. The property was also stunning. Everywhere you looked was a postcard-worthy view. And the house was about 10 minutes from Ojai. It was just a perfect location with my greatest friends and I couldn't have asked for more. We all can't wait to go back. Thank you, Sophie, for sharing this gorgeous house with us.
