Overview

About the property

Recentlly Constructed Custom Home Located Directly On The Ocean At Faria Beach

This two bedroom, two bath home is as aesthetically pleasing as it is comfortable, with stunning views of the coastline through a wall of glass doors that open directly onto the deck where the ocean is at your feet. Twelve foot high curved ceilings create an open and airy feeling throughout the house that lifts the spirits.

The state of the art kitchen is fully equipped with upscale appliances, including two dishwashers, two refrigerators, professional range and convection microwave. The enormous granite bar is perfect for socializing around the kitchen if you desire. The delightful banquette dining area with 180 degree views of the coastline provides seating for 8 or more.

The spacious master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed and professionally designed lighting that provides a romantic ambiance. The deep oversized soaking tub in the master bathroom fills from the ceiling and invites you to light the candles and pamper yourself.

We are located in the gated section of Faria Beach with a private tennis court and children's playground a few feet away. PCH offers bike lanes for long rides along the coast. The charming town of Ventura is a few minutes away for shopping, dining and antiquing.

We have many regular guests who book us for the same weeks each year, so regrettably, availability is limited.

About DeLayne Harthorn

This property was originally acquired by my grandmother, Winifred McFadden as a getaway from the summer heat of their orange ranch in Bardsdale, California. It has been enjoyed by five generations of our family. The original cottage was rebuilt in 2007 and it is my great pleasure to share our beautiful home at wonderful Faria Beach with our guests.

DeLayne Harthorn purchased this house in 1938

What makes this house unique

Relax with a book in a deck chair while watching the dolphins, pelicans, sea lions and shorebirds. Depending on the tides, take a walk on the beach to search for beach glass or explore the tide pools. The ocean is in charge, and conditions can vary dramatically from sandy to rocky and from calm to tempestuous! Enjoy surfing or kayaking at renowned Pitas Point directly in front of the house or Mondos Cove to the south. Unwind in the soaking tub, then watch the sun set behind the Channel Islands while preparing gourmet meals in the state of the art kitchen.

The perfect place to relax and enjoy the ocean in a stunning home that has everything one could wan.

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. We enjoyed the views and the peaceful sound of the waves. The moment you open the front door the views take your breath away. The house itself is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need - a gourmet kitchen, lovely bedrooms, very nice bathrooms and comfortable chairs to enjoy the ocean views.

The only problem was we had to leave. We will be back!
