NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK. Gated & Private Ocean View Craftsman estate in Ventura. THE GOULD RESIDENCE. This panoramic ocean view treasure was designed by Henry Mather Greene of Greene & Greene Architects, Pasadena, CA. It is the only Greene & Greene design in Ventura and one of the most highly documented designs of the firm on record. Home is on the National Register of Historic places built between 1923 and 1924 with additional work completed into the 1940s. Attention to detail is evident everywhere you look in the house. There are 3 master bedroom suites as well as two additional bedrooms, for a total of 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, and 4300 square feet. The estate sits on approximately 1.75 acres. The Mill Act is currently in place, as well as a conservation easement held by the Pasadena Heritage Society, giving you a huge tax savings incentive. This is the only Henry Mather Greene house on the National Register of Historic Places and hand-built by local contractor Clark Still and his team. It is one of the last homes Henry Greene designed, and it is noted that Mr. Greene liked the house and the family very well, exchanging Christmas cards with the family for years following the construction. Attention to detail is evident everywhere you look in the house; to be sure, as a consequence of the amount of tedious hand-sanding of the wood trim Henry demanded, the workmen would have to take off work a few days at a time to heal their hands. The original landscaping was designed by Theodore Payne, a noted Los Angeles Specialist and Pioneer in the use of Native Plants, some still in evidence today.
