Why Kristina Knapic chose Ojai
I always loved taking day trips to Ojai to enjoy the peace and serenity of the country. I loved going on horseback rides and hiking along the river discovering swimming holes. When I saw this house online I had to see it and when I walked in the entryway I was sold. The Mansion is a stunning piece of history and a gorgeous property.
What makes this estate unique
The Mansion may look formal with its handpainted ceilings and antique furniture but it is also very comfortable and warm. The grounds are a wonderful place to explore, pick fruits from the trees and find eggs hidden by our resident hens. The game room with its pool table and dart board is a fun place to hang out and visit with the horses who love to poke their heads through the windows!
It is paradise!

"The Best Thanksgiving Ever"
It was the first Thanksgiving with all our family ( both my side and my wife's ) together. Naturally there was a lot of worry for us but once we arrived at Kristina's that all melted away. Our clan covered the gamut from toddlers to teens to seniors. Everyone had a fantastic time. Many many thanks.
