Historical Gem! Stately ocean-view Craftsman home built in 1911 for Ida Foster, the daughter of E.P. Foster (E.P. Foster Library) and her husband F. Neil Baker. Architecturally, it is one of the few two-story shingle houses remaining in Ventura and is an excellent representation of the 'Craftsman' style bungalow. It has been lovingly restored with custom woodwork and detailing, maintaining the original character of the home. This beautiful home is listed as Ventura Historic Landmark No. 109. The broad front porch invites you to sit, relax and enjoy the view. Enter through the leaded double front door to the spacious entry. The living room features an elegant fireplace and carved wood mantle. The main floor has a formal dining room, a sunny room to be used as a parlor, reading room or office, a large bedroom (with access to the back courtyard) and remodeled bath. The kitchen is spacious with an island and built-in wine refrigerator. You'll be astonished to know that the home also has a usable basement! The primary bedroom is one of two upstairs bedrooms with vaulted wood ceilings, balcony and ocean views. The primary bathroom also boasts a large en-suite with marble counters, soaker tub and walk in shower. You will love the wrap around walk thru closet with custom wood built-ins. There are a total of 4 bedrooms upstairs along with a large laundry room with ample storage.
Enter the courtyard via the electric gate entry that leads to the large 2 car garage. The attached bonus room has wood flooring perfect for a game room, storage or work area. Above the garage is a 2 bed-2 bath detached ocean-view guest home built in 2006. The guest house shares the craftsman design featuring vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and beautiful woodwork throughout. It also has granite counters in the kitchen, walk in closets, and 2 large baths. It's a fabulous rental property with it's own private entrance and even has it's own unique mailing address (123 N. Ann St.)! Both homes have tankless water systems and Air Conditioning. The courtyard separating the homes creates a serene and private space with its California tropical landscaping and water feature. Located near to all that downtown offers...theaters, dining, shopping and the pier and more.
