The spa has lovely views of the gardens, and the patio off of the main house, which overlooks the reflecting pool, is an ideal place for outdoor meals or a morning cup of coffee.Casa El Toro is one of three spec homes originally commissioned Edmond Libbey for George Washington Smith to design in 1921, Ninety years later, architect Kevin Clark completely renovated & re-envisioned the original house, nearly doubling the footprint. The result is this irresistible Spanish Colonial Revival masterpiece, with the traditional red tile roofs atop thick, white walls, fireplaces, wrought iron embellishments, courtyards, patios, and balconies, all conspiring to invoke a golden era. Clark obsessed over every minute detail: every floor, decorative tile, ornate wall and window treatment, down to the smallest hardware finish, was meticulously designed and hand-crafted for this unique property. The current owners have curated the perfect decor to complement the design, with most items chosen from their extensive world travels. Eclectic art pieces delight the eye at every turn and the library includes a vast collection of rare books. An upstairs terrace with fabulous mountainviews, low furniture, carpets and pillows transport one to Morocco. This is a rare opportunity to come to Ojai and live one of the finest houses in the valley. Available August 10th or a one year lease, it comes furnished and includes gardeners, maintenance and utilities. Owners will remove selected personal items from the home before renters move in while leaving the property in its luxuriously livable perfection.
