THE MONTGOMERY HOUSE est. 1874 - Its sunny, romantic wrap-around porch and large windows overlooking downtown Ojai is home to the famous Porch Gallery, unique as both a historic residence & eclectic Gallery space! A classic Victorian, the third oldest building in town, was built by Ojai Pioneer John Montgomery. A celebrated Gallery and Beato Chocolates Store (named after famed artist Beatrice Wood), is an iconic communal gathering spot for celebrities, world-renowned artists, and locals alike. This cherished Ojai architectural landmark is a one-of-a-kind delight! The high-profile community space and residence is zoned VMU and designed as a live/work space. Its living quarters feature a 2/Br unit on the ground floor and another 2/Br occupying the first and second floors. Carefully renovated, it enhances the property's historic and original architecture; the rich contrast of deep wood accents, wainscoting, & high ceilings serve as an ideal canvas for vintage nooks, built-ins, warm and bright gathering spaces. Shading the front porch is a 140-year-old Cypress tree. The fenced-in rear entertainment area includes a spacious deck w/built-in seating and gas firepit, all sited to enjoy spectacular views of the Topa Topa Mountains w/its glorious Pink Moment.
