Celebrated and admired, Patina Farm was imagined as a place where fresh air, open space and a calm, slower pace are a way of life.

Designed by Steve and Brooke Giannetti as their personal residence, the farm brings together all of the best elements of an idealized European country estate that has been in the family for generations.

Subtle and understated, Patina Farm is an over 4.5 acre country home, luxury estate, petite farm and timeless architectural statement that perfectly reflects its pastoral setting in the heart of Ojai.

Combining a style and materials that are decidedly old world with a modern, open floor plan and amenities, the layout feels almost accidental as rooms flow easily and site lines take your eyes through large glass window walls and your imagination to the outdoors.

Each detail throughout the home was intentionally selected, from the “Diamond coat" plaster walls to the French limestone floors, the repurposed wood doors, and the antique French Terracotta tile roof, there is a sense of unassuming luxury, passion and excellence throughout.

THE STORY

Screen Shot 2022-04-03 at 6.58.32 AM.png

   rooke and Steve Giannetti began designing homes together over 30 years ago. Inspired by historical architecture and the unique lives of their clients, they strive to design spaces that are not only beautiful but feel intentional and personal.

The couple are proprietors of Giannetti Home, a full-service architectural and interior design firm, and also operate an online home furnishings boutique.

After living in Los Angeles for over 25 years, Brooke and Steve decided to move to Ojai, where they designed their dream home, Patina Farm. Living on Patina Farm, they realized that the spaces they created together were inspired by and connected to nature, which allowed them to feel more peaceful and present in their lives.

That realization deepened their design philosophy, as they now incorporate what they have learned living at Patina Farm into all of their outstanding and award winning projects.

In the last couple of years, Brooke and Steve have expanded their design focus to include clothing and home decor, all designed with the same nature-based principles.

 

Their enchanting European-influenced estate, Patina Farm, provided the writing inspiration for the series of books, which offer a closer look into their design philosophy, their work and extraordinary life on Patina Farm.

Admittedly, they never entertained the idea of selling Patina Farm until they discovered a magical 100 acre farm with a 150 year-old log cabin and antique barn, perfectly nestled on a peaceful and lush farm in rural Tennessee; aptly named Patina Meadow. Brooke and Steve are ready to leave Patina Farm to it to its next caretaker to love and enjoy as much as they have, as they set out on their new journey of growth and creative exploration.
