Hope Ranch is an exclusive community of approximately 775 luxury homes and estates encompassing 1,863 acres in the southeastern portion of Santa Barbara between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. It consists of a broad flat mesa and low rolling knolls broken by a magnificent valley and covered with splendid 100-year old live oaks.
The scenery from the home sites on the knolls is indescribably beautiful; landward, the purple mountains of the Santa Ynez range—the green foothills crowned in the distance by the famous Santa Barbara mission; seaward, the Santa Barbara Channel Islands and the blue Pacific greet the eye.
Santa Barbara and Hope Ranch are known the world over for possessing the most perfect climate to be found anywhere—the sun shines brightly 250 days out of the year and the nights are cool and pleasant. It is often called the American Riviera because of the picturesque surroundings and the temped Mediterranean climate.
Laguna Blanca, a private school, is located within the area of Hope Ranch. Also, at the entrance to the Ranch, sits the prestigious La Cumbre Country Club with its exquisite hill-top club house and championship golf course surrounded by the gorgeous Laguna Blanca lake.
Hope Ranch is governed by a homeowners association which was developed to assure a unique quality of life and maintain its well-deserved image as a wealthy suburb of Santa Barbara. The members of the Hope Ranch Park Homes Association enjoy private beach access with picnic tables, BBQ facilities, summertime lifeguards, and palapas. There are also tennis courts, a polo field, private security patrol and many miles of dedicated horse trails. Paradise found for those fortunate enough to call this home!
