Discover this enchanting single-story 3-bedroom 2-bath custom Spanish Hacienda-style home with guest quarters surrounded by a lovely landscaped and level half-acre in the heart of the historic Ojai Arbolada area. Embraced by glorious oaks with tree-top views of the majestic Topa Topa mountains, the residence (approx 2400 sf per seller) has extra-thick walls, is built around a 1,000 square feet private courtyard and has three additional patios, a larger-than-two-car garage and a wisteria-covered port-cochere that connects the garage and extra room (for storage, guest or office) to the main house. This thoughtfully designed residence was built in 2001 and is a wonderful reflection of classic style and aesthetic detail.From the first moment you enter the wrought-iron courtyard gates you may imagine you are experiencing a romantic storybook setting from a hundred years ago. Incorporating details and design intentionally reminiscent of an earlier time reveal an artistic combination of the finest materials, craftsmanship and inspired vision of a timeless retreat including: A hand-carved solid Teak door entry to the ''great room'' with glistening hardwood floors cut from old ship masts, tall windows, high ceilings with corals beams, recessed lighting, a wrought-iron candle chandelier and a grand European-style fireplace and mantle. There are floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves and cabinets with wiring for music, and French doors that open to a park-like yard and patio all under an oak tree canopy. Two separate ''wings'' of the residence wrap around the courtyard, each with access through beautifully carved solid Teak doors. The West wing contains the Master bedroom suite with high ceilings, fireplace, built-in book shelves, walk-in closet, and a Master bath with dual stone sinks and sunken shower. There is a private patio off of the Master bedroom with a decorative wall fountain and copper bathing tub.
