Ojai Real Estate

Downtown Ojai, Arcade and Snow covered Topa TopasOjai

The City of Ojai is situated in the Ojai Valley north of Ventura and east of Santa Barbara. It is approximately 15 miles inland from the Pacific ocean. The Ojai Valley also encompasses the unincorporated towns of Casitas Springs, Oak View, Mira Monte and Meiners Oaks. It is a popular retirement community and the major industry is agriculture. The excellent climate and natural beauty of Ojai, along with the area's hot mineral springs, have provided Ojai with a reputation as a place to rejuvenate the mind and body. There are several world-renowned spas and resorts in the area and there is widespread emphasis on wellness and good health among the residents of the area.

San Antonio Creek just outside of OjaiThe Ojai Valley has peaceful country views and spectacular mountain ranges. Its east-west mountain range features a "Pink Moment" that occurs as the sun is setting and the fading sunlight creates a brilliant shade of pink for several minutes on the Topatopa Bluffs at the east end of the Ojai Valley. Horseback riding and hiking are popular pastimes in this area of graceful oaks and scenic waterfalls. The architecture of Ojai owes much to its Spanish influence. The downtown arcade has a Spanish-style facade and there is a mission-style arch and pergola at the downtown park bearing the name of Edward D. Libbey, a wealthy glass manufacturer who set out to make Ojai into "a dream city of soft harmonies, smooth flowing line and warm colors." Dream city or not, Ojai does have a wide choice of housing styles to suit almost any taste.

Ojai is and has always been, an artistic community, attracting writers, photographers, painters, musicians, composers, sculptors, potters, weavers, and jewelry makers. The Ojai Center for the Arts is the oldest continually operating arts center in California. Painting, poetry, theater, dance, and music classes and workshops are held at the center throughout the year and the center also produces art shows, theater productions, poetry festivals, crafts fairs and dances. Those who consider shopping an art will be pleased with Ojai's myriad of shops, bookstores and galleries along with many indoor-outdoor restaurants and coffeehouses. With a population of 7,461 (2010), Ojai is the least populated incorporated city in Ventura County.

This "Old Ojai" 40+ acre property is situated on BOTH sides of Maricopa Highway, and offers moist, luscious and breezy setting; accessible river frontage; and springs. This property has three flat areas with separate entrance gates. Its historic nature includes the Matilija Hot Springs Bridge, a shared border with Ojala, and a colorful history as the location of Pop Soper's boxing ring. On the mountain side, there is a flat area close to the highway that offers beautiful views. The property was burned in the 2017 Thomas Fire, taking the last remaining 1920's cottage. There are no known existing utilities. Buyers who would be interested in developing the property are SOLELY responsible for their own assessment of the property and its potential uses. The Ventura County Non Coastal Zoning Ordinance, Section 8105-3, is a good place to START to investigate uses and other County Planning requirements. Other Government and Municipal Agencies, and/or Private Entities, may also weigh in on the buildability and usability of the property due to zoning requirements and easements. This property has three bridge easements including the Via Cielo, Matilija Hot Springs, and Ojala Bridges. Other easements exist. Though there is a lot to consider when planning to use this property, one thing is clear: it is a truly beautiful and magical "Old Ojai" setting with great opportunity for those with vision, determination, and perseverance.
