homes above Lillie Ave. in Summerland, CA.
A relaxed beach-style ambiance pervades Summerland, a former religious commune and mini-oil boom town just east of Montecito and Santa Barbara. At one time hosting more than a dozen producing oil wells, soap and cigar factories and an interesting mix of colorful citizens, today this charming town’s main street, Lillie Avenue, provides a delightful array of antique shops, galleries and even a winery tasting room. The laid-back and close-knit community of approximately 1,500 residents also offers casual, family-friendly restaurants and a lovely beachside park featuring expansive lawns, play areas and direct access to the beach. Possessing a sort of Bohemian soul, the community is home to artists, writers and part-time residents enjoying a relaxed lifestyle based in one of the cozy cottages or spacious abodes perched on the hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands.
