The Pratt House.
 

 

Casa Barranca, a national historic landmark, is an American Arts and Craft style ultimate bungalow built in 1909 by the preeminent architects Charles and Henry Greene. One of their most beloved bungalows, it is truly a sublime example of the zen-like art that is the craftsman heritage. Sitting upon a ridgeline overlooking the idyllic Shangri-La of Ojai, California, this historic home was originally known as The Pratt House before being named Casa Barranca, meaning house by a winding river gorge by the owners Charles and Mary Pratt.


The house, which is now open as a vacation rental for people from around the world to come to and enjoy, is 5,000 square feet within a 12 acre lot. Beyond it’s 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3 porches, fully stocked kitchen, multiple indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and outside dining areas, the estate has a pool & hot tub, an organic garden and orchard, and a 1400 square foot yoga studio - making it a memorable place to immerse oneself in the wild and idyllic beauty of Ojai for a personal getaway or private group retreat.

In keeping with its heritage, the house is intended for those who will respect the sanctity and peace of the land, the home, and its neighbors. Our guests use their time here to slow down and immerse themselves in the quiet beauty of nature while still enjoying the many amenities of the household.
