Housing Market Tales of Woe

The market is so shot, they’re featuring cactus gardens to try to sell a house. <a href="https://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1854&amp;entry_id=1672" title="http://www.coldwellbanker.com/servlet/PropertyListing?action=detail&ComColdwellbankerDataProperty_id=13036366&page=property" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.coldwellbanker.com/servlet/PropertyListing?action=detail&ComColdwellbankerDataProperty_id=13036366&page=property’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Coldwell Banker</a> has this listing in Ojai for $6.25m.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">A 1908 Myron Hunt Design. This is the historical winter home of Edward Drummond Libbey, the visionary philanthropist who transformed Ojai from a ramshackle western settlement into the modern architectural mecca it is today. A prosperous glass manufacturer, Libbey wintered in Ojai beginning in 1908. He is responsible for the original Wallace Neff clubhouse and the George C. Thomas, Jr. golf course of the Ojai Valley Inn and Country Club…. Myron Hunt, the renowned Los Angeles architect responsible for the Huntington Library, the Ambassador Hotel and many buildings at Caltech, Occidental College and Pomona College, designed the Libbey Estate in 1908…. Located on Foothill Road near downtown Ojai, the estate features three separate houses, an office, a recently built 60 foot tile pool <span style="font-weight: bold;">and extensive cactus and succulent gardens.</span> The property totals 3.7 acres</span><br /></div><br />Nice. A little pricey, but you’d get a lot for your money.<br /><br />
