A mountain of a listing just hit the market in Ojai, where a 3,600-acre estate known as Black Mountain Ranch is up for grabs at $100 million.
It’s Ventura County’s largest and priciest property currently on the market by a mile, and one of the largest in all of Southern California. The seller is businessman Richard Gilleland, who formed the prize property by combining 63 parcels.
The working cattle/horse ranch combines rolling hills, grassy pastures and 12 separate structures including a main house that spans more than 13,000 square feet. Built in 2004, the lodge-like space combines wood, stone and glass with rustic rooms that take in views of the surrounding mountains.

A handful of other homes dot the scenic grounds including a 2,000-square-foot caretaker cottage with a porch and a 1,800-square-foot guesthouse. Amenities are packed into the 6,200-square-foot carriage house complete with a gym, office and wine cellar.
For storage, there’s a hay barn, horse barn, equipment barn, equipment garage and shed that combine for more than 20,000 square feet of space. The auto gallery alone covers 7,200 square feet.
More than 35 miles of trails meander through the grounds, stopping by a shooting range, stone patio, hot tub, cantina, tennis court and lake with a dock for fishing.
