Hope Ranch

Hope RanchIncorporated in 1924, the Hope Ranch Park Homes Association watches over this elite residential area filled with magnificent estates. This wonderful area has an abundance of lush and gently rolling hills hosting approximately 700 homes, most of them luxurious Hope Ranch estates with gorgeous landscaped grounds. Many of these estates sit perched on these low hills that provide expansive views of both the Santa Ynez Mountains and The Pacific Ocean.  Membership in the association is automatic upon purchasing a home and brings many privileges: the private beach, a polo field, tennis courts, a soccer field, and the advantages of the Hope Ranch Riding Trails Association.  The riding association has laid out over 20 miles of riding trails traversing throughout the area, including access to the private Hope Ranch beach. You enter Hope Ranch passing through the arched gate and under the infamous sign suspended across Las Palmas Drive.  Planted in the early 1900s, towering palms line the main boulevard, Las Palmas Road.  Wearing jodhpurs and shiny black boots, young girls on horseback gallop along a tree-lined trail.  An early morning jogger circles serene Laguna Blanca Lake. A golfing foursome takes a private stroll at the La Cumbre Country Club with its wonderful course set around beautiful Laguna Blanca.  The gentle hills provide a great venue to ride bikes with numerous viewing opportunities.  Most homes have either ocean views or mountain views and almost all with great settings. Santa Barbara and its world-class shopping, dining, cultural and recreational amenities are all within a few minutes drive. Hope Ranch Real Estate values average around $3 to $5 million.  Spectacular view homes, estates and ocean front property start at around $4 million and can exceed this amount threefold or fivefold. If you are interested in real estate here in Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara, Montecito and our surrounding areas, as well as any other aspects of life here, please don't hesitate to contact Kevin Schmidtchen at Village Properties.
