Kelli Williams Lists Ojai Farmhouse (EXCLUSIVE)

With indispensable assists from trusted informants Lucy Spillerguts and Yolanda Yakketyyak, we learned that veteran television actress Kelli Williams (“The Practice,” “Army Wives,” and “The Fosters”) has her stylishly turned-out residence in the scenic, semi-rural community of Ojai up for sale at just under $3 million. Online listings show the property, tucked up into the foothills of the Los Padres National Forest, about 90 miles northwest of Downtown L.A., is pending sale. Williams and writer-producer husband Ajay Sahgal purchased the almost 1.4-acre property via blind trust in March 2012 for a wee bit more than $1 million.

The board-and-batten-clad 1950s farmhouse-style residence has six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in almost 5,400 square feet over three floors, done up in a fetchingly eclectic boho-chic style. There are rustic-luxe charcoal-gray flagstone floors in the living room and wide-plank floorboards in the long and narrow dining room as well as in the library/media lounge and expensively stocked eat-in kitchen. On the main floor, in addition to the master bedroom, two en suite guest bedrooms are tucked behind the kitchen, and on the upper level, two more en suite bedrooms flank a den with built-in sofa banquette. A bunk room on the lower level has built-in beds. The back of the house opens to a vast, partially covered deck that spans the full width of the house and overlooks a deep expanse of lawn, ringed by mature specimen trees. There are raised-bed vegetable gardens, a spacious chicken coop, and a cozily picayune detached studio/office space.

A rigorous but unscientific search of property records suggests the couple previously owned a 3,500-square-foot house in the Fryman Canyon area of Studio City that was sold in 2012 for a bit less than $2.4 million to four-time Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross.
