A spacious Craftsman farm house, the Churchill Residence is located in the east end of the Ojai Valley, a half block from The Thacher School and the Krishnamurti Foundation. Originally part of the historic Pierpont property, the 4000 sq. ft. house was designed and built in 1905 for Civil War veteran General Charles G. Penney. The second owner of the house was Dr. Guido Ferrando who along with Aldous Huxley, and J. Krishnamurti founded the Besant Hill School (formerly Happy Valley School). The residence has been owned by the Churchill family since 1955.
A short drive from Ojai Town Center, the residence is set back one-tenth of a mile from Thacher Road. Amid orange and avocado orchards, the location is private and serene. Beautifully landscaped grounds compliment mountain and valley views from verandas on the front and back of the house. The residence is not suited for groups with children for reasons of their safety and potential damage.
A peaceful, rural retreat: The Churchill Residence is popular with friend's groups, writer's groups, and Thacher families. It's secluded and peaceful, a great place to have a family reunion, catch up with friends, read, think, create. There are many cultural events in Ojai throughout the year. Don't miss the Sunday Farmer's market and Bart's Books.
Restrictions: We do not allow parties, receptions, etc. with more guests than are staying in the house.
The residence is not suited for groups with children for reasons of their safety and potential damage. The house is over 100 years old and has not been child proofed. An infant under crawling age may be accepted by special arrangement. You will be required to bring bed and bedding for the infant. We require a liability release at the time of the reservation.
The house is not available for any commercial use including filming and photography.
Our calendar is up to date. Please check availability before making your inquiry. With respect, we no longer respond to inquiries for dates that are booked in the calendar.
Our 3 days here were not enough. My son was married at Twin Peaks Ranch on the 15th so we were very busy with wedding activities and could take full advantage of the beautiful grounds and orchards. We all loved this wonderful gracious house and spending time on the verandas just enjoying the spectacular scenery around us (and the flowers). It was so relaxing and calming."
Ojai's Sunday morning farmer's market is a real treat. Don't miss Bart's Books.
