Situated on seven picturesque acres just outside the bucolic village of Ojai, California, the home is steeped in history, tradition and celebrity. One of the earliest works by architect-to-the-stars Wallace Neff (best known for Pickfair, the 42-room mansion of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks), Libbey Ranch was originally built in 1923 as stables for Edward Libbey, the glassware
