                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: My Husband and I live an hour away from Summerland, I fell in love with Santa Barbara County the first time I went there, and hoped some day in my future I would have a place there. We recently bought this house and did a lot of DIY hard work but worth it. We hope to retire here. Hope you love it too.

                          Why the Owner Chose Summerland:
                          We chose this property because of the ocean views and the privacy, The quaint town and the neighbors are great. It's close enough to come to when ever we want and enjoy with friends. It feels like the Ocean is your backyard.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Walk to the beach and town for something to eat, even buy some cute clothes or go wine tasting without having to drive
