Summerland house description

Perched on the scenic hillside in Summerland, Summer Hill Retreat is a contemporary jewel on the coast just south of Montecito. In 2012, this 2-story home was completely redecorated in a sleek yet comfortable aesthetic, but it is the sweeping coastal views that ground this home in natural beauty.
Two Master Suites make practical sense in the smart floor plan of this versatile home. The 2-level design offers two separate but connected living spaces, each with it's own private entrance.
Interior colors ranging from cool nautical blues to sandy neutrals echo the natural tones of the sand and surf of this beachside town. The main floor is bright with high ceilings, and a wall of glass doors is the only separation between the Great Room and the blue coastal waters and Channel Islands beyond. On a clear day you really can see forever!
A wood burning fireplace is the focus of the Living Room and faces comfortable seating on the large sectional sofa or the double-wide chaise. For working professionals, the large desk space in the adjacent entry is the perfect place to stay organized on a working vacation, while still enjoying the camaraderie of the main living spaces and the beautiful views. The glass Dining Room table seats 8 and, surrounded by corner windows, feels as though you are dining outside high above the ocean.
Step through the sliding glass doors of the Great Room to the wrap-around deck with its several different vantage points to enjoy the views. A seating area with barbecue is conveniently located near a side door to the kitchen, and another long stretch of the South facing deck is just perfect for seasonal whale-watching.
The galley Kitchen, with blue color-washed cabinets is equipped with all the necessary culinary items for great meals and entertaining. A Breakfast Bar adds additional seating and opens the space to the social life that may be enlivening the Great Room.
Cool colors of the ocean create a calming effect to soothe the mind and calm the spirit when you enter the Master Suite. This airy space is furnished with a king-size bed and has a full bathroom. Glass doors open to the more private side of the wrap-around deck; a great place to enjoy morning coffee or afternoon tea.
The second upstairs Bedroom has a queen-size bed with a twin trundle. Sliding doors offer convenient access to the wrap-around deck. A hall bathroom serves this bedroom and is also convenient to the main living area.
Downstairs, an apartment-style design offers the perfect set-up for a second family to have a great space all their own. The Master Suite has a queen size bed, sitting area, full kitchen and bathroom. Sliding doors open to the large lower covered balcony where guests may enjoy dining al fresco or relaxing on the hammock or comfortable seating areas.
A second bedroom on the lower level has a queen-size bed tucked quietly away in a private alcove that can be closed off with canvas curtains. The adjacent sitting area then becomes a great sitting room or an additional bedroom for overflow sleeping arrangements on the day bed . This room also opens to the lower balcony, and a convenient hall bathroom is nearby.
Summerland is a quaint seaside town full of life and charm. Just down the hill from Summer Hill Retreat are great local restaurants, beach shops, antique stores and unique fine mercantile. Treat yourself to a hearty breakfast on the porch at Summerland Beach Cafe, sip local wines at the Summerland Winery, stroll down to the beach and kick back for the day or, if it's more your style, for a glorious sunset picnic. Whatever activities you choose, Summer Hill Retreat will be the perfect beginning and ending to a memorable seaside vacation.
