Honorable Mentions

The homes listed below are homes that we considered to still be very good deals, but just fell short of making the Best Buys list.  We wouldn’t be surprised if they sold quickly because the one or two elements that caused us not to include a property might be less relevant from buyer to buyer, depending on personal preferences.

ojai valley real estate$649,000 – 311 W. Summer Street #E

This is a 2 bedroom/1.5 bathroom, 1,772 sq. ft. townhome located in a quiet and tucked-away enclave near downtown Ojai.  The home features beautiful wood flooring, an updated kitchen with granite countertops, an open and bright first level with skylights in the living room, a large and private back patio, and a cozy courtyard located near the front entrance.  The bathrooms have not been updated, but are clean and perfectly fine as-is. There is a monthly Homeowner’s Assocaition fee of $350.00, so take that into consideration if you’re thinking of taking a look at this gem.


1515 daly rd ojai

$1,950,000 – 1515 Daly Road

This is a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom, 3,672 sq. ft. home on just over an acre.  To find with a home a bird’s eye view of the mountains and city lights – so close to town – is a rarity indeed.  The layout is unique (in a great way) – we’re not sure there are any rooms in the home that are rectangular or square!  The wood flooring looks great, as does the kitchen (love the tiled counter tops), laundry room, and huge master bedroom wing.  There is also a 639 sq. ft. guest house that features high ceilings and several balconies – it too looks fantastic and is done with unique architectural elements.  The views from the balconies, as well as from the main house’s back patio and pool area, are what truly make this home unique.  This was last on the market in 2016 – several elements have been updated since that time, including the kitchen.

REDUCED from $2,100,000 – 4/9/18

ojai real estate

$2,725,000 – 1571 Kenewa Street

This is a unique and visually stimulating home, featuring 3 bedrooms/4.5 bathrooms and 4,873 sq. ft. of living space – all on 45 acres.  The interior (and exterior, for that matter) lines of the home are curved and to our eyes, very appealing.  Despite the rounded corners, the house has a mid-century/modern feel to it as well.  Check out the wood beams in the living room and kitchen – stunning (see photos 5 & 6 on the link).  The infinity-edged pool is tucked away and private (as is the whole property), while the step-down area to the hot tub features mountain views perfectly framed by the surrounding trees.  A fascinating home for those who want to avoid the ordinary!
