If you’ve ever thought the pirate’s life was for you, but you’re also inclined to live a luxury lifestyle, we’ve found your perfect home.
Located in a private cul-de-sac in Coto de Caza is a sprawling estate that, when seen from above, closely resembles a theme park. As you approach the front door, however, you realize that this impressive home has much more to it than the half-scale replica pirate ship that first catches everyone’s attention.
Large, open rooms and impressive architecture are defining features in the main house. An elegant staircase enhanced by a sparkling chandelier greets guests and beckons them upstairs. Downstairs, a spacious kitchen that would delight any chef funnels into a living area complete with a fully stocked bar. This is just one of the many luxury amenities in this estate, which includes a billiards room, home theater, lounge, two offices, and seven fireplaces.

Matilija Canyon Ranch is a rare opportunity to own an Ojai retreat that feels like a step back to an easier time. The ranch is comprised of three parcels totaling approximately 560 acres surrounded by Los Padres National Forest.
The four residences at 3572-4101 Matilija Canyon Road are situated amid a private wildlife refuge that includes hiking trails, hundreds of fruit trees, a trout stream, two ponds, outdoor living areas, an aviary, and a fenced corral.
Of the four residences on the property, the largest is Dent House, a historic 1908 Craftsman that was moved from Ventura and has been a designated Ventura County Landmark since 1985. Original owner John Dent raised walnuts, cattle, and apricots, and was instrumental in forming a dried-apricot association.
