View of Edward Doheny's Ferndale Ranch, located in Santa Paula amidst the steep mountains of the Los Padres National Forest. Architect Wallace Neff built the 9,000-square-foot mission-style Hacienda as a summer home for oil tycoon Edward Doheny and his wife Estelle, in 1929. Oaks, redwoods and maples create a canopy of shade over the five-bedroom, seven-bath house, which was constructed with two-foot-thick adobe brick walls, and framed with massive wooden beams and columns. In addition to the main residence, there was a manager's house, a guesthouse, a gatehouse, horse stables, citrus orchards, an aviary, a nine-hole golf course, three large reflecting pools, and a small lake stocked with trout.
