Nestled in the hills above the town of Ojai sits Ojai Alisal, a 20-acre private, gated property with 360-degree views of the Upper Ojai Valley. Sitting at the crest of a hill sits a 2 bedroom, 21/2 bath Italian farmhouse style home sited to capture views of the Topa Topa mountains out the front windows and the full Upper Ojai Valley from the back.Downstairs is anchored by a large great room comprising kitchen, dining, and living spaces. The great room has ten-foot ceilings with solid wood beams and is centered on a 1920's fireplace originally carved by Italian immigrant stone workers as a front doorframe for a home in Bel Air. Kitchen appliances include Subzero refrigerator, Wolf range and Miele dishwasher. Two sets of French doors lead out to the covered patio with a large fireplace perfect for year-round al-fresco dining. Off the great room are a separate mudroom/pantry, a cozy office/library and a powder room.Up a sweeping wood staircase detailed with wrought iron railing and antique chandelier are two bedrooms. The first bedroom suite has a private full bath. The master bedroom suite is expansive with a separate sitting area detailed with wood beams, a large walk-in closet, and a spacious master bath with separate bathtub and shower. In the hallway is a commodious linen closet.The house is nestled in mature landscaping with California Pepper, Sycamores (or Alisal in Spanish!), and native Oak trees. Outside is a separate two car garage and beautifully manicured grounds. The backyard area is enclosed by a handmade dressed stone wall and anchored by a basalt column fountain which draws a huge variety of local birds. Gravel paths wind through a wide selection of fruit trees, including Meyer lemon, yuzu, citron, Buddha's hand, pixie tangerine, Mexican lime, Blenheim apricots, four different figs, Persian mulberry, and both Hachiya and Fuyu persimmons. The garden itself is planted almost entirely with California native plants and in the spring and summer is home to legions of hummingbirds.The property also includes an active vineyard that is the source for all the grapes used in Ojai Alisal's wines. Initiated in 2009, Ojai Alisal currently has almost 3 acres planted with about 2700 vines. Red varietals Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Malbec while whites include Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Ojai Alisal produces about 500 cases a year and is known for award-winning wines made only from grapes grown on the property. Enough land to expand vineyard.
