Summerland Beach Retreat - Fun in the Sun and on the Beach

This wonderful tri-level beachfront home was originally built in the 60’s, and is furnished in classic, comfortable beach style. With walls of glass, 25-foot ceilings and a neutral color palate, the home takes full advantage of the coastal views and gives a feeling of being suspended above the bright blue horizon.

Wake to a crimson sunrise at Summerland Beach Retreat. Play all day in the surf and on the sand. Fall asleep to the sound of rolling waves, and feel the ocean breeze. Life on the beach in Summerland is all about relaxation, rejuvenation, and fun in the sun!

From the entryway, step down into the Living Room that features plenty of seating for every guest. Open and spacious, the ocean awaits through sliding glass doors. A fireplace, TV, and grand piano are all nice additions to this welcoming space. An expansive upper deck spans the length of the home. Step outside and enjoy unobstructed ocean views, a dining table and a barbecue; this will be the main gathering spot from sunrise to sunset.

The country Kitchen is bright and fully equipped with large center island, prep sink, and even holiday tableware for those with reservations during the Christmas holidays. Flanking the kitchen, the Dining Room is on one side and one of two Laundry Rooms is on the other; the layout is perfect for busy families. On this same level is a Guest Bedroom and Bathroom, each with an outside door that leads to the upper deck and lower Lanai, as well as the walkway to the beach below.

A unique feature of this home is the spiral staircase that connects all 3 levels. Ascend the stairs to the upper level and find a generous size Master Suite. This beautiful space offers sweeping ocean views and a fireplace, and -in true loft-style- is fully open to the Living Room below. With the addition of a cozy Bedroom with twin bed, a second Bathroom and a desk area for work or study, the loft is an ideal Family Suite.

Descend the spiral stairs to the lower level that features 3 Bedrooms, a second Kitchen, Bathroom and second Laundry Room. Each guest room conveniently opens to the Lanai through French doors. The French Room is reminiscent of a hotel in Paris, with European style furnishings and sparkling chandelier over the queen-size bed. The Seaside Room with king-size bed offers plenty of space, day bed, and doors to the terrace outside.

The Mission Suite, with outside entrance, offers a bit more privacy, a comfortable couch, a wet bar and coffee maker. The newly remodeled Bathroom features bright white subway tile and glass block, and a large walk-in shower. It is important to note that this Suite cannot be accessed from within the home as the entrance is from the Lanai.

The Lanai is a comfortable place to dine and relax under the protection of the balcony above. Guests can also venture to the edge of the property to enjoy seating built into the rock wall that overlooks the beach below the  property. There is even a fire pit for enjoyment after dark and under the stars.  Out the private gate, walk directly down to  Summerland Beach. Only local residents venture to this end of the beach, making this unique location feel more like your own private piece of paradise. Take one of the kayaks or boogie boards and paddle out, or simply take a relaxing walk along the wide beach where dolphins often play in the surf.

The quaint seaside town of Summerland is full of wonderful antique shops, local eateries and upscale shops, and is a 5-minute walk from the home.  Situated just two miles south of Montecito and five miles from Santa Barbara, Summerland Beach Retreat boasts a feeling of being “away from it all”, yet is close enough to enjoy the sights, sounds and scenery of this World Class stretch of the Central Coast. Escape to Summerland, where life is easy, and the beach is right at your doorstep!
