|The DENT HOUSE
A 1908 romantic Craftsman Style beauty
Furnished with a wonderful mix of soft, cozy couches and chairs, period furniture, antiques and fine Craftsman pieces, the look and feel is true to the origin of the dwelling as home to the prominent John Dent family of Ventura, California.
This 4500 square foot, four-bedroom historic house was named an Historic Landmark by the Ventura Historical Society, when it was saved from destruction in 1983. Now, completely renovated and carefully refitted with every amenity for graceful, comfortable living, the DENT HOUSE features three fireplaces in the living room, entertainment/sitting room, and reading room with its extensive book and video library. There are gardens, orchards, creeks, and ponds. The DENT HOUSE has the worlds greatest rocking chair screened porch where friends can gather to watch the light change across the mountains towering above the Ranch. The dining room of the DENT HOUSE is serviced by its licensed, commercial kitchen. It feels just right for a sun-splashed lunch for two in its many-windowed bay, or for a large family gathering at the holidays. With fine dining and comfortable beds, one would never need to leave the serenity of the Ranch.
The DENT HOUSE has four spacious bedrooms, each with ceiling fans for warmer days.
The Green Bedroom with 2 single beds OR king-sized bed has its own separate Sitting Room and convertible daybed. The private bath has a pedestal sink andclaw-footed tub with brass hand shower.
The Rose Bedroom, with queen-sized bed and sitting area near sunny windows, overlooks the front of the house and west orchard. It has its own private bath with pedestal sink, claw-footed tub and brass shower.
The Peach Bedroom with queen-sized bed and wicker chaise longue has French doors in the bed alcove opening to the upper screened porch. This room has a private bath with pedestal sink, claw-footed tub and brass shower.
The White Bedroom has a double bed in a bright sun filled room and a large, double-pedestal-sink private bath with large claw-footed tub and brass shower.
