A beautiful farmhouse retreat inspired by nature in Ojai, California

farmhouse-style-home-exterior

This gorgeous farmhouse retreat was designed by Kevin Tsai Architecture in collaboration with Mckuin Design, located on a sprawling 10-acre property just outside of Ojai, California. Surrounding by a serene bucolic landscape, this 5,500-square-foot home boasts four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a 700-square-foot guest house with a Murphy bed and full bathroom.

The guest house features gabions sourced from local Ojai rocks that blend in beautifully with the surrounding landscape and help to insulate the rooms against heat during the day and cold at night. The main house features floor-to-ceiling windows that frame sweeping views of the upper Ojai mountains.

The designer employed an earthy color palette inspired by old barn houses. This allows the simple structure to not compete with the natural beauty of the landscape.

What We Love: This farmhouse retreat in Ojai is enchanting. It looks simple on the outside, but inside, it’s bright and airy with beautiful details throughout. We love the way the interior is beautiful and interesting but not so much that it competes with the real focal point—the natural surroundings. This a great example of fitting the house and its landscaping to the land.
