From the moment you enter the private drive to this historical and architecturally distinctive property, you'll sense the extraordinary and know that you're experiencing something very special. Within the artisan-built rock walls framing the flat two acre parcel, towering oaks, eucalyptus, olive and sycamores line the meandering pathways and lead to the astonishingly charming stone cottage (circa 1936) which was both expanded (to approx 2660 sq ft) and renovated in 2000 under the skilled talent of renowned local contractor Andrew Stasse. A wisteria and grapevine covered arbor shades the expansive front terrace and long ago became a signature feature of the property inspiring the name "Arbor House". The imported Slate Roof gives the exterior even more character. Inside, soaring beamed ceilings and stone fireplace in the living room converge making the warm & cozy space also feel expansive. The Formal Dining room enjoys a distinctive "tray ceiling" design while the adjacent Kitchen furnished with handcrafted cabinetry using many local woods, boasting Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Fisher & Paykel dishwashers and vegetable sink is sure to fulfill any chef's dreams. Two bedrooms on the main level open on to a tiled and covered porch while the Master Suite enjoys a sunny second-story perspective and remarkable vistas to the east and west! Despite the beauty inside of the home, perhaps it's the years of thoughtful landscaping efforts that really root this property and explain the palpable and undeniable sense of East End "magic". Regardless of the season, there is almost always some burst of color or flowering plant stealing center stage. A thriving family orchard of at least 12 varietals and 4 raised vegetable beds will keep the household healthy and fed. But perhaps the most spectacular feature of the property is the full perimeter "infinity" pool and separate "infinity" spa. Less than a year old, the free form pool surrounded by natural boulders includes a waterfall element and yoga platform and has the appearance of floating in the expanse of the totally private rear yard. The sophisticated Pentair Eco-matic saltwater pool system can be controlled remotely enabling the spa to be heated by simple smartphone command so it is ready and waiting at your demand. With this kind of property appeal, you're sure to receive frequent out of town guests. Grace them with the joy of awakening to the light, bright and fully equipped guest quarters strategically located for maximum privacy. They're sure to love the volume ceilings, Saltillo tile floors and the clever barn-doors dividing the bedroom and living areas. The opportunity to own one of Ojai's most charming and remarkable properties happens infrequently. The current owners who have lovingly restored this home for the past 15 years reluctantly release it in exchange for more family time on the East Coast. The opportunity for you to own this extraordinary property in the Ojai Valley is NOW!
