Casa Barranca Estate

Casa Barranca Estate - In 1909 Charles and Mary Pratt came to the Ojai Valley seeking to escape the bustle of New York City. To build a residence appropriate for this spectacular setting, they turned to the most gifted architects of the Arts and Crafts movement, the brothers Charles and Henry Greene. Situated on a ridge commanding panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and orchards, the Pratt's built a winter retreat they named "Casa Barranca," meaning "house of the ravine."
