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.

135 n lomita ave ojai$445,000 – 135 N. Lomita Avenue

This is a cute 1 bedroom/1 bathroom, 704 sq. ft. home that feels larger than the square footage would suggest.  The kitchen doesn’t appear to have been updated, but it’s just fine as it sits without feeling dated.  The bathroom has been updated with a newer sink/vanity and toilet.  You’ll also find a brick fireplace and beamed ceilings in the cozy living room, as well as wood flooring in the kitchen/dining area.  Most of the yard space is located in front of the house (the yard is on the small side), but it’s nicely coiffed and is fenced for privacy.  This home has been nicely maintained.

457 burnham rd ojai$495,000 – 457 Burnham Road

This is a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom, 1,131 sq. ft. home with studio – located on a .24 acre lot.  The studio is actually situated at the front of the lot, while the main house is towards the rear.  The studio has a small kitchenette and bathroom, with wall units for both heat and a/c.  The main house features wood and concrete floors, a mostly updated bathroom with a newer sink and vanity, plus a rock wall shower enclosure.  There is a small loft above the garage as well.  Good income potential here!

1122 paseo del robles ojai

$859,000 – 1122 Paseo Del Robles Court

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.

1437 san gabriel ojai

$1,395,000 – 1437 San Gabriel Street

This is a 4 bedroom/4 bathroom, 3,304 sq. ft. home on .82 acres on the east side of town.  This single level home features attached guest quarters, wood and saltillo tile flooring, nicely updated bathrooms, and an open and bright kitchen.  In back you’ll find a covered patio, plus a pool, both surrounded with tasteful stone pavers.  This is also an equestrian property, so you’ll find plenty of room for Justify, Trigger, Black Beauty, Buck, Lil’ Sebastian, Cochise, Silver, Quick Draw McGraw, Pokey or Mister Ed (that’s all I could come up with off the top of my head).
