A storied legacy
With a sunny wrap-around porch and large windows overlooking downtown Ojai, The Porch Gallery is unique as both an historic residence and eclectic gallery space . A classic Victorian, it was built in the early 1870s by Ojai Pioneer, John Montgomery, named The Montgomery House, and is the third oldest building in Ojai. Currently home to a celebrated gallery, high-profile community space and residence , the property is zoned for mixed use and designed as a live/work space. The residence features a two-bedroom unit on the ground floor and another two bedroom residence occupying the first and second floors . Carefully renovated to enhance the property’s history and original architecture, the rich contrast of deep wood accents, wainscoting and high-ceilings serve as an ideal canvas for vintage nooks, built-ins and warm gathering spaces. Shading the front porch is a 140-year-old cypress tree, and a fenced in rear area includes a large deck with built-in seating and gas fire pit all sited to enjoy spectacular views of the Topa Topa Mountains and Chief Peak. A well known and much loved property, this unique offering is ½ block to the famed Sunday morning Ojai Farmer’s Market and 1 block to the downtown arcade filled with shops, restaurants and venues.
