Summerland house description

Set high on the hilltop above the town of Summerland, this ocean view cottage is a light-filled gem surrounded by gardens and sandstone pathways. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath private cottage has been transformed into a cozy, modern and comfortable living space keeping in mind both aesthetic ambiance and ease of entertaining. Large sliding glass doors and floor to ceiling windows invite the outdoors in, revealing a view of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Barbara Channel Islands beyond. Open beamed ceilings, Asian influenced interior furnishings, custom doors and woodwork, and original art defines the unique style of this cottage. The main bedroom has a king size bed, Japanese antique dresser and plush wool carpeting. Second and third bedrooms each have queen beds. Bathrooms are tiled in a clean, uncluttered style and have limestone countertops and floor. Plenty of plush towels and toiletries can be found inside each bathroom cabinet. Kitchen comes complete with all the necessities that a chef of any inclination or ability might require. Colorful table cloths, linens, candles and dishes are all provided to create a festive vacation experience.
The outdoor living area is a favorite place to read and lounge in the sun on cushions under the grapevine arbor. With two dining tables and a gas BBQ there is plenty of space to spread out and relax by day, or to cozy up next to the fire under the stars by night. Orange, lime and lemon trees and many herbs grow in the lush garden. A separate artist’s studio with entrance up the back stairs can be used for yoga practice, playroom, or just a place to store extra beach gear.
Just steps away from the Montecito trails system that guides hikers, horseback riders and bikers along a series of paths that can be followed easily into the foothills or to downtown Summerland and on to the beach. Take the trail down to the main street in Summerland and enjoy a morning coffee and pastry at the Luna Café, stroll through Botanik garden gift shop, or have a glass of wine at the Summerland Winery and tasting room. There is the famous Nugget restaurant where many locals enjoy a drink and a meal in a folksy, western style ambiance. Summerland boasts many other places to see, from antique shops to clothing and beachwear boutiques. Summerland is the ideal vacation beach town, off the beaten track, yet just minutes away from Montecito, Carpinteria and downtown Santa Barbara.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About: We've lived in this house for 25 years. Why? Because we love it here. Careers in documentary film-making, environmental science and art, an eleven-year-old daughter, passion for clean skies and open views to the horizon--For us, Summerland has it all.

                      Why Summerland:
                      Both owners grew up in homes with wide open views. This house was like coming home for one of the owners who is is a native of Santa Barbara with family ties here that go back generations. Some of her family still lives in town, and friends live just down the street whom she has known since nursery school. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't appreciate this amazing part of the world. Being able to go to the many local Farmer's Markets and buy fresh, locally grown produce all year round, to walk to the beach or hiking trail, to see friends on the street we have known our whole lives makes this truly a home where the heart is.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Summerland is a community of great diversity. Multi-million dollar estates surround this quaint, funky little seaside berg where everybody still has to go to the post office to get their mail. Located on the topmost street on the Summerland hillside, this house is shielded from any view exposure of the freeway below and is exceptionally quiet. Close to upscale shopping on Montecito's tony Coast Village Road where a world-class cocktail can be sipped at a window seat at Lucky's or the Biltmore Hotel. Many family oriented beach parks can be found within a mile or two, where mostly locals enjoy boogie boarding and meet for lunch at the famous Padaro Beach Grill. Or maybe you crave an evening stroll up the hill behind the house on a trail that leads directly into an oak-lined canyon and avocado orchards. And with the many interesting opportunities to tour, shop, eat, and sightsee located only a few more minutes up the road in Santa Barbara, Summerland is the perfect base from which to launch a vacation stay that will satisfy any traveler’s cravings.
