Ventura | $3.49 Million
A modern farmhouse built in 2005, with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, on a 12.87-acre lot
Six of this property’s nearly 13 acres are planted with avocado trees, and there is a citrus grove, as well. The lot, nestled in the hills overlooking the coastline, is private, with no neighboring homes in sight. But it is well located for visiting surrounding areas: Rincon Point, a beach on the border of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, with some of the country’s best surfing, is 20 minutes away; about 40 minutes in the opposite direction is Ojai, a popular resort destination and wine-industry hub.
Size: 2,275 square feet
Price per square foot: $1,534
Indoors: From the road, a driveway winds through the property, passing fruit trees, before it ends in front of the garage. A path leads to the front door, which opens into a foyer.
To the right is a bright living room with polished-concrete floors and a fireplace. Through the living room is an open dining area, with room for a long table in front of floor-to-ceiling windows facing an orchard and, beyond, the ocean. The dining area is open to the kitchen, which has Caesarstone countertops; stainless-steel appliances, including a dedicated beverage refrigerator; and a large, ocean-facing window above a farmhouse-style sink. Also on this side of the house is a powder room with an ash-wood vanity, as well as a laundry room.
Stairs in the entry lead to the second level, where there are three bedrooms, two of which have access to a balcony that partially wraps around the house. One of those bedrooms is the primary, reached by turning right at the top of the stairs. It has vaulted wood ceilings and an en suite bathroom with a large shower separated from the rest of the room by a glass wall. On the other side of the stairs are a smaller bedroom currently used as an office and a third bedroom large enough to hold a queen-size bed; they share a bathroom with a walk-in shower.
