A true original, this gated, ocean-view farmhouse is tucked in at the end of a sweet country lane, situated upon an expansive half-acre, premier hilltop knoll. Rich in history, the estate was built in 1880 for the renowned Professor Loveland, an important personage in Summerland history. The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home was recently transformed with modern conveniences, yet still retains its vintage charm. Character abounds with original wood floors, carved staircase banister, sash windows and doors, along with period hardware. Unparalleled craftsmanship and detail abound, of the kind you find in a solidly built, well-maintained vintage home. There is an open great room with fireplace, updated kitchen and bathrooms, and sweeping views of the ocean and mountains from nearly every room. A large upstairs balcony off the master bedroom beckons relaxation facing the inspiring, panoramic view. The private, boast-worthy grounds feature terraced gardens, rolling lawns, tall hedges, covered verandas and patios perfect for dining alfresco. Available fully furnished in a fresh, coastal, modern California style. Easy access to the bike path and conveniently located within minutes by trail to Summerland's quaint Lillie Avenue and Summerland beach. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a special, turn-key property, incomparable to anything else in Summerland or Montecito!
