Ackk! This place is hideous. j/k. This is the nicest place our poor person eyes have ever seen. The Ford Estate, designed by famed architect Paul R. Williams, features 16 rooms surrounding a central courtyard. The home is surrounded by landscaped grounds and views of the surrounding mountains. It is listed as Ventura County Cultural Heritage Landmark No.169 and has recently undergone a four year restoration. Per the listing: "William Ford, Board Chairman and controlling stockholder of one the largest glass companies in the world, set his sights on the early California town of Ojai. After purchasing land on a majestic viewing knoll in Country Club Estates, he selected famed architect to the stars, Paul Revere Williams to design his Spanish-style center courtyard house and pool. Located on a small cul-de-sac street, adjacent to the world class Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, the extremely private gated estate sits on 3 plus acres with mature oak trees and a working tangerine grove." Thank you to reader Stephen R. for sending this in.
