2420 Foster Avenue, Ventura Property Listing: MLS® #219003409

Once the home of Author Erle Stanley Gardner of Perry Mason fame, this hillside home sits on a large rare FLAT lot - so beautiful that weddings have happened here! Enjoy panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands from almost every room in the house. Watch the sunsets from the expansive deck. The elegant features of this traditional 1936 home have retained their integrity, yet the floor plan is surprisingly modern and open. There's a master bedroom down and a master suite with dressing area (or office) up along with two other bedrooms. Guests will enjoy the charming suite with a fireplace above the garage. A stone wall, serene Koi pond and outdoor barbeque patio complete the picture. The versatile finished basement and storage area is perfect for the gardener, artist, or fitness fan. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in the hills above the high school, 2420 Foster Avenue is close to Ventura's historic downtown shopping/dining/art district and the beach. This is VINTAGE VENTURA at its best!
