A gardener's and artist's paradise! Selected for the Garden Tour of Ojai in 2008, this beautiful single level home featuring two indoor artist's studios is a magical yard where the gardener's spirit can soar. Lovingly maintained by the same family for almost 30 years, this home is located within the coveted Los Encinos neighborhood. Enjoying the serenity of a loop road, the almost 3/4 acre property features three bedrooms, two full baths, a sunroom, and two separate hobby/artist rooms.
With an open floor plan and lots of glass capturing the beautiful gardens containing many exotic trees, fruit trees, raised vegetable gardens, garden art, plants, a chicken coup, and a child's playhouse, the grounds are mesmerizing. Whether viewing the property from the inviting sunroom, the very spacious patios or the deck, there is so much variety in the spectacular yard.
The gardens naturally draw one to wander through the paths and admire the trees, plants, garden art, potting sheds, and relaxing nooks. Entertaining both in and outside the home is easy and a pleasure with the various dining and seating areas. The large picture windows showcase the greenery throughout the yard, and the glass-enclosed sunroom creates the perfect setting to enjoy a beverage while admiring the ever-changing colors of this wonderful backyard.
The master bedroom is very large and features a sitting area along with access to the back patio through the glass slider. The hobby room also features lots of windows and offers an inviting space for the artist to let their creativity emerge. In addition to the main level hobby room, the artist studio at the lower level of the backyard provides ample space to work on projects while gazing at the inviting yard through the French doors.
The oversized, two-car garage was built to augment the existing carport, which is used as an artist workshop. There is an additional large covered workshop suited to the wood worker, artist, car enthusiast, and welder alike. This special property with a truly special setting is only minutes to town.
2068 Los Encinos offers the serenity of country living with the convenience of being close enough to the charming and quaint artistic community of Ojai.
