The William Ford Hacienda, 1929
Ventura County Cultural Heritage Landmark 169. With its completion noted by the Ojai Museum as a principal event in the history of the Ojai Valley, the Ford Hacienda is celebrated not only as a triumphant example of the Spanish Colonial Tradition in architectural design, but perhaps more importantly as a timeless environment for living a lifestyle idealized by the California plein air painters of the period.
The property, a prime three plus acre knoll-top site, affords bucolic views of the surrounding Ojai Valley, & is conveniently located close to the Ojai Valley Inn. Exterior grounds display a citrus orchard, original swimming pool set carefully into a broad lawn, nature, rose & kitchen gardens. The fountained interior courtyard is cooled by an olive orchard.
Now, following a multi-year restoration with designer Kevin A. Clark, the property affords a unique opportunity for a discerning buyer. Significant Tax Advantages.
