OJAI HOLIDAY HOME TOUR & MARKETPLACE
Saturday and Sunday, November 16 & 17, 2019
A benefit for the Ojai Music Festival and its BRAVO education and community program,
which offers free music workshops to the Ojai Valley public schools and the community
Get ready to be inspired at the 23rd Annual Ojai Holiday Home Tour & Marketplace on November 16 and 17 in the beautiful Ojai Valley. This treasured tradition, presented by the Ojai Festival Women’s Committee, invites guests to tour four distinctive Ojai Valley homes adorned with floral inspirations.
This year the selected homes are:
The Wall House: An award-winning home designed by a renowned architect for his own family, this contemporary masterpiece boasts a spacious open interior featuring a raised platform for the concert grand piano, sunken conversation area around the fireplace and a combined kitchen/dining area where the family enjoys memorable times together. The 12-acre secluded property includes peach and apricot orchards, organic food and flower gardens, and bound by tributary streams to the Ventura River on both sides.
Tuscan Ranch: This gem of old world charm boasts gorgeous frescoes, colorful tiles, and ornate wrought iron details. Gracious outdoor living spaces add to the ambiance of this stately home, where the grounds are as lovely as the house. Everywhere you turn, there is beauty to be discovered, with touches of whimsy as well as practicality.
Foothill Farm: The current owners were fastidious about maintaining the architectural integrity of this 1906 classic when they modernized. They have a unique knack for integrating an eclectic array of art, from pre-Colombian to modern, and making it look perfectly suited amid the impeccable craftsmanship of this timeless French Normandy treasure.
El Sombrero: Reflecting the owners’ commitment to sustainability and modest sensibility, this modern-day “shack” fits in perfectly on an idyllic 1.25-acre lot in the East End and offers as much living space outdoors as indoors, incorporating countless unique features.
Also taking place the same weekend is the Holiday Marketplace with its new location at the Libbey Park, across from the historic Ojai Downtown Arcade. The companion event will feature a collection of curated lifestyle and fashion items from more than 40 vendors. Admission to the Marketplace is free and open to the public.
Weekend hours of the self-guided home tour are 10am to 4pm. The Marketplace hours are 10am to 5:30pm on Saturday and 10am to 4:30pm on Sunday.
