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.

291 larmier ave oak view

291 Larmier Avenue – $499,000

This is a 2 bedroom/1 bathroom, 972 sq. ft. home with wood and marble floors, an updated bathroom (which is larger than you’d expect in a home this size), a partially updated kitchen, and updated plumbing and electrical systems.  This home is bright and airy inside, quite a nice surprise.

Reduced from $519,000 – 4/22/19

110 n fulton st ojai

110 N. Fulton Street – $535,000

This is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 856 sq. ft. home located in downtown Ojai.  The center of town is only .4 miles away, so it’s easily within walking distance of most everything.  This would be considered a starter home, and it features what looks to be original wood flooring (re-stained?), with a partially updated kitchen (new cabinets and counters), a decent sized back yard, and a saltillo tile-covered back patio. This home does not have central A/C.

SOLD for $535,000 – 6/25/19

418 descanso ave ojai

418 Descanso Avenue – $559,000

This is your basic 3 bedroom/2 bathroom, 1,201 sq. ft. home in one of Ojai’s most family-friendly neighborhoods.  Inside you’ll find hardwood floors and a dining room/family room that almost has a greatroom feel, with the way it flows from one to the other.  There are aspects of the home that some would wish to update, but this is a good price for a home in a neighborhood where we’re seeing things sell in the low to mid-600’s.

SOLD for $555,000 – 6/25/19

2226 sumac dr ojai

2226 Sumac Drive – $739,000

This is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom, 1,879 sq. ft. home with great curb appeal.  Inside you’ll find an updated kitchen and master bath, wood floors, and a large bonus den.  Out back there is a private deck with a hot tub, and perhaps the best part – there are no neighbors to the rear, leaving you a large open field where no one will build in the foreseeable future.  Lastly, this home is partially powered by solar electricity – the panels are owned, not leased.

Sale Pending – 6/27/19

433 sunset st oak view

433 Sunset Street – $759,000

This is a 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom, 1,821 sq. ft. home on .46 acres (though much of that space is downhill and not really usable).  This home is completely updated, featuring engineered wood floors, updated kitchen and bathrooms, a large back deck that affords partial mountain views and overlooks the terraced back yard and barranca.  The front of the home is nicely coiffed, with drought tolerant landscaping and decomposed granite (DG) pathways. Very sharp and move-in ready.

REDUCED from $779,000 – 6/4/19

306 w oak st ojai

306 W. Oak Street – $799,000

This is a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom, 725 sq. ft. home.  Stunning; that sums it up. Yes, this home is on the small side, but it’s incredibly charming.  It’s also been fully updated – kitchen, baths, flooring – everything. Out back you’ll find a small, detached office space and several private sitting areas.

SOLD for $735,000 – 6/29/19

151-153 S. Padre Juan Avenue – $825,000

This is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom, 2,376 sq. ft. property that has two homes on it, plus an extra building that could be used as a studio or office.  The front home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, while the back home is a 1 bedroom/1 bath that is totally modern and updated (you might say it’s more attractive than the main house).  Because the second home is legal and permitted, its potential rental income is very high (call us for more details).  Both houses have nice yard spaces rendered in DG (decomposed granite) rather than grass.

SOLD for $775,000 – 7/12/19

1122 paseo del robles ojai

1122 Paseo Del Robles Court – $840,000

This is a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom, 2,613 sq. ft. home with a pool and partial mountain views.  The home is bright inside and features a great floor plan, as well as an updated kitchen and bathroom (not all the bathrooms have been updated).  We really liked the back patio/pool area, where the owners did a nice job of creating a fanciful environment with the foliage, fruit trees and hardscape.

Back on the market and reduced from $859,000 – 7/8/19

622 LOS ALAMOS DR OJAI

622 Los Alamos Drive – $949,000

This is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom, 2,701 sq. ft. home that will make you say “Wow!” the moment you step through the front door.  This “wow” factor is due to the huge living room/greatroom area that features high ceilings and large wood beams (see photo #2 on the MLS link).  This home most certainly has a farmhouse feel, most notably in the kitchen, greatroom and master bedroom. The wide plank wood flooring adds a nice touch, and while the kitchen and baths have not been updated, their decor certainly adds to the farmhouse charm.

SOLD for $929,000 – 6/28/19
