Start your day with freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice from your private garden grove and pluck some fragrant roses for the table. Have your morning coffee nestled in one of the Adirondack chairs on the sun-drenched porch. Go skinny dipping in the pool, or sunbathe on a lounge chair on the poolside deck (no one can see you!). A family of deer may prance by, as hummingbirds sample the plantings. Entertain guests with sunset cocktails while watching Ojai’s famous pink moments. Enjoy a romantic dinner in the dining room with its elegant recessed lighting. Dance the night away with your favorite music from the built-in outdoor speakers. End the day in the hot tub accompanied by plentiful stars, or cozy up in the family room to watch a movie on the large screen TV or listen to some vinyl on the turntable.If you’re a cook, this is the home for you! The kitchen is uniquely designed with a sweeping counter that faces outward so you can cook and clean without ever turning your back on your family or guests in their swivel stools. Top-of-the-line appliances , a round glass table in the kitchen area and very large pantry complete the dream kitchen.
Each bedroom has a unique theme:
Master-the oversized master features an all-white modern beach style, with splashes of red and the orient from its antique-y lamps and chest master bath brings in light from the skylights and has a large bathtub, double vanity, a huge walk-in closet, and tons of storage space.
A second bedroom with spectacular mountain views has a king-sized bed in splashes of aqua and orange which are inspired by the colors of the Ojai sky. A walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with double vanity rounds out this room.
A third bedroom with a queen-sized bed feels other-worldly with its Persian rug and earthy hues of orange and brown, and bookshelves full of both classic and modern reading material. There is a walk-in closet, and the ensuite bathroom has a bathtub.
A fourth bedroom is currently furnished with a desk, ergonomic chair, and a chic couch/daybed that you may find even more comfortable than a regular bed. Extra high-speed wi-fi means non-stop zoom calls are a breeze.
