The tiny village of Summerland is located in Santa Barbara County, spanning only two square miles and perched on the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This laid back community is all about making the most out of the beach lifestyle – residents of Summerland homes enjoy spectacular views of the ocean, access to the beach and activities like surfing, and a bohemian atmosphere that values relaxation above all else.
Summerland has an idiosyncratic history as both a residential community and oil town. Founded at the turn of the 20th Century, this was originally a haven for spiritualists; until the mid 1950’s the original séance room still stood in the center of town. The oil boom in the early 1900’s made Summerland the site for numerous oil wells until offshore drilling cleared the coastline once again for residents. Today, the Summerland real estate market attracts numerous permanent and second homebuyers, and is also a popular vacation destination.
