Looking For Backup
Designed in 1914 by renowned architect Reginald Johnson, you enter this very private 25 acre ranch through gates down a dramatic driveway arboretum with mature trees from all over the world. The property features a very well-preserved and upgraded historic home with inviting and expansive views of the Ojai Valley that will take you back to a time and place of peace and serenity. The approximately 4,340 sq. ft main house, with 4 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, and 4.5 baths is nestled on a hillside overlooking a healthy 12-acre orange grove watered by a robust well. Upgrades include new marble bathrooms, kitchen, floors, and hand-painted walls as well as dual zone air conditioning and upgraded wiring and plumbing, all of which maintain the integrity of a 1914 home. The property boasts a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath gatehouse, a 2,500 square foot redwood barn, 2 car garage, and separate studio as well as an acre of avocados. Take a dip in the pool or play pickle ball on the court while enjoying your complete privacy. This is a unique opportunity to own part of Ojai's magical history and a remarkably graceful home by Reginald Johnson, who designed such classics as the Biltmore Hotel, the Santa Barbara Post Office and the Cate School.
