1365 Foothill Road
Ojai, CA 93023
This magnificent historical estate was designed in the 1929 by renowned San Diego architects Richard Requa and Frank Mead, who also designed the Ojai Post Office and the St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel. Nestled in the hills of the prestigious Foothill Road area, this 8 bedroom, 61/2 bath home is a classic example of the Southern California Style, which combines Spanish Colonial Revival and Mission Revival for a unique blend. Particularly notable are the three story tower, the inner courtyard, the arched portico and the fabulous tile roof. Perfectly appointed on over three acres, the property has sweeping views of the Ojai Valley, especially from the tower and the expansive balcony off of the master bedroom. High ceilings and arched doorways combine with numerous French doors and picture windows to create a light interior with an immediate sense of the beautifully landscaped surroundings. Modernized and upgraded, the property retains its historical magic while appealing to contemporary sensibilities. Features a separate guest house, a downstairs guest suite with separate entrance, a large, newer pool, a combination of gorgeous tile and solid wood floors, and a spacious chef's kitchen. Accents of wrought iron, carved wood and hand-made tiles are present throughout. This is a piece of Ojai history, with a luxuriousness and elegance that is totally unique.
