Your Zen retreat awaits! Perched on a hilltop above downtown Ojai, this architectural home with amazing views has been beautifully restored and re-imagined. The influence of Japanese design and culture can be felt throughout in its distinctive features: a bridge and stream entrance, a peaked roofline, exposed beam ceilings, and an original custom fireplace. There are views from every room, cedar soaking tubs, a koi pond, and a web of footpaths meandering through the mature garden. The house has been updated with solid white oak floors, handmade tiles, walnut cabinetry, built-in sofa window seating, expansive surrounding decks, a new roof, and new HVAC. The 3br/3ba main house has a modern, single-level layout designed to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors year-round and is wonderful for entertaining. There is a separate studio guest house with its own courtyard. The garage is fully finished with large windows, HVAC, storage cabinets, and a loft office with stunning views. The grounds include a large original pool, raised plant beds, and a chicken coop. The entire acre has been landscaped to feel natural and soothing. For even more tranquility, it's adjacent to dedicated open space and Ojai's best hiking trails.
