Hope Ranch is situated in the southeastern portion of Santa Barbara County between Highway 101 and the Pacific. This area is rich in history with first written mention of the Hope Ranch area dating back to 1769.
In 1861, Thomas Hope bought the property for $8,000. Today, Hope Ranch is a community comprised of over 1,863 acres of ranch-style homes and grand estates sitting atop low rolling hills and nestled in splendid live oaks. There is a homeowner's association that manages the private roads, over 27 miles of horse paths, the private beach and tennis courts.
Hope Ranch is also home to La Cumbre Country Club and it’s fantastic golf course which, along with the Santa Ynez Mountains, creates a spectacular backdrop for many of the properties. Expansive views of the Channel Islands and ocean can also be seen from many areas making this an incredibly beautiful and highly desirable place to live. (Hope Ranch is one of the wealthiest areas in California.)
