Enjoy a cul-de-sac location and proximity to Hwy 126 from this four-bedroom home in the Kim-Wells neighborhood of East Ventura.
Most of the home is original, aside from the upgraded, double-pane windows and sliding glass door, which bathe the spacious rooms in natural light.
Start your day at the breakfast bar between the kitchen and the dining room, then end your day relaxing in front of the living room fireplace.
A private backyard with a block wall, patio and plenty of room for a vegetable garden is a great place to entertain, while the two-car garage offers ample storage and a door leading directly to the kitchen to conveniently bring in groceries.
Each bedroom has a large closet, plus a coat closet in the entry and two hall closets offer lots of extra storage.
This one has great potential as an investment property or add your personal touches to make it your forever home.
Homes in this popular neighborhood sell quickly, so don’t miss the chance to make this one yours!

Mendella is a four-year-old, neutered, gray Havanese Terrier mix. Mendella was surrendered to our Humane Officers earlier this year when it was determined that he needed a new home. Mendella has a sweet and calm disposition, and he has the softest coat! He’s a very good boy, who has learned to trust people again. He loves to hang out in the play yard with his buddies during the day and loves squeaky toys. He has recently gone on some of the pack walks with other dogs, and he’s amazing on the leash! His personality is coming out now, and he’s blossoming. Mendella will need to be adopted by a family who can take the time to continue socializing him and give him lots of love. He will also need to have regular sessions with a groomer, to keep his coat nice and fluffy. Stop by and meet Mendella if you are looking for a lovely little companion dog.
Included with every dog adoption will be the first DHLPP shot of the series, a rabies vaccine, a medical exam good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, implanting an identification microchip (registration extra), spay or neuter surgery, if necessary, as well as a collar, ID tag, and a leash. For dog adoptions, a yard check will be performed prior to adoption. In addition to adequate fencing and shelter, those wishing to adopt a pet must provide either proof of ownership of the residence or a rental agreement for that address indicating that pets are allowed. If you are interested in learning more about adoptions, please contact the Humane Society of Ventura County at (805)646-6505.
Gardening is good for the soul – as well as the body and the mind – but, while there is nothing quite like spending a Zen-like afternoon tending to your garden beds, spending too much time outdoors without the proper protection is not good for your skin.
Excessive sun exposure can cause sunburn, sun damage, wrinkles, and skin cancer, so, before you head outside to pull weeds, prune shrubs or tend to your herb garden, be sure to follow these seven tips to protect your skin from the sun.
1. Always wear sunscreen.
This one should go without saying, since you should be wearing sunscreen every time you step outside, but no list of skin protection tips would be complete without at least mentioning the importance of applying sunblock. This one task reduces your risk for sun damage, sunburns and skin cancer, so don’t forget the sunscreen before heading out to work in your garden.
2. Schedule your gardening tasks.
It is difficult to avoid the sun when living in Ojai, since there are few options for scheduling gardening tasks on cloudy or overcast days. However, you can limit your sun exposure at least a bit by completing outdoor chores in the morning or evening to avoid spending too much time outside in the middle of the day when the sun is directly overhead.
3. Wear lip balm with sunblock.
Apply lip balm with sunblock repeatedly while working outside to protect the thinner, more delicate skin on your lips from chapping, burning and sun damage.
4. Set up a shaded work area.
Set up your potting bench under a shade tree, inside a garden shed or beneath an umbrella to minimize sun exposure while tending to your container garden.
5. Wear sunglasses.
Grab your sunglasses as you head out the door to shield your eyes from UV rays and protect the delicate skin around your eyes.
6. Cover your hands and arms.
I know you don’t want to wear long sleeves or gloves when it is this darn hot outside, but wearing the appropriate clothing now can save you from sunburns, sun damage, wrinkles, or even skin cancer later. Look for lightweight, breathable fabrics that are designed to offer sun protection during outdoor activities. For gloves, choose a flexible but durable option to also provide protection against scrapes, cuts, blisters, and calluses.
7. Show off your garden fashion with a wide-brimmed hat.
Showing off your style with a wide-brimmed hat helps protect your face, ears, scalp, neck, upper arms, and chest from the sun, so don’t forget yours when you head outside to tend to your garden.
