The Historic Ojai Arbolada is was one of Ojai’s earliest subdivisions. This neighborhood was lovingly designed and developed by Edward Libbey in the early 1920s and features custom-built estates situated on lots that range in size from half an acre to two acres. Here, within the city limits of Ojai you will find a array of architectural styles from classic Spanish to the traditional ranch style homes. The winding roads, oak studded, level lots give you a felling of country living.
Libbey employed gangs of men to clear the underbrush from beneath the oaks, and proceeded to install winding roads with curbs lined by native stone throughout the area. He had three homes built in authentic rural Spanish architecture to set the tone of the development. Friends of Libbey were invited to purchase the first parcels of land in the park and erect homes whose architecture was carefully checked for its harmony with the surroundings. The area was later opened to the public for the purchase of lots, and happily, Mr. Libbey’s standards of construction have been consistently maintained.
In the beginning the original price of a lot started at $10,000 and sales were slow. It was not until 1958 that the subdivision really took off and many of the homes there were built. The subdivision is unique in that each home enjoys from 1/2 to 2 acres and the area is covered in native Oak trees.
Today the Arbolada is considered one of the high end neighborhoods for the City of Ojai. Prices begin at $800,000 for a fixer. The highest sale in the neighborhood was $5,400,000 in March 2008.
There are usually no more than three to seven homes available for sale at any given time.
