THE STORY:

Can someone lend me 1.5 million. I Fell in love with this property before it was even cleaned up. I lived up by mupu school.

Williams Homes is also proposing to leave an open space in front of the historic residence to preserve the view of the property from nearby Ojai Road. "The idea really is to cluster the homes on the flat part of the land. We could develop on the hillside... We don't think that's the right thing to do," said Keith Herren, executive vice president of Williams Homes. "It's really called smart growth. That's conscientious
