Positioned enviably between the mountains and the sea, Hope Ranch is famously home to some of Santa Barbara’s most beautiful landscape and coveted estates.

Large parcels adorn the hillsides, and meandering equestrian trails lace the community. Private beach access for residents further affirms Hope Ranch’s enduring appeal.

Located on the premier knoll top site, once owned by Hope Ranch’s founder, Howard Chase, an incredible estate, with sweeping ocean and mountain views, is home to some of Santa Barbara’s most dramatic views and idyllic gardens. With echoes of France and whispers of Provence, this incredible compound offers a decidedly Californian interpretation of joie de vivre.


Ascending the meandering drive is a delight in its own right. Hand-cut stone pavers lead the way through an ovation of olive trees and a collection of well-curated gardens to arrive at the stellar residence which enjoys the area’s most dramatic ocean and mountain views.

Everyday living


Everyday living



The beautifully proportioned formal living and dining rooms open to a large covered terrace overlooking the lush lawns and the sea beyond.


Wonderful for entertaining of all kinds, these spaces are awash with gorgeous architectural details. A massive stone fireplace anchors the western wall of the living room and provides a luminous companion on cool evenings. The living room’s box beam ceiling compliments arched French doors. In the dining room, softly coved ceiling provides a sense of intimacy. Witness the relationship between light and shadows that transpires across hand-troweled plaster walls. As the day develops, these rooms are a canvas that transforms with the movement of the sun.

The kitchen and adjacent family room and breakfast nook offer wonderful spaces for everyday living. Reclaimed, wide-plank, French oak floors provide a timeless continuity to the spaces and complement the patina of custom alabaster-glazed cabinetry. In the kitchen, abundant workspace and storage ensure that all culinary endeavors, from the familiar to the ambitious, are easily accommodated.

The breakfast nook opens to a second covered terrace and looks to the sea. Surrounded by windows on three sides, this sunny space is fantastic for daily dining and meals on the go. The family room offers a perfect spot for relaxing, reading, or watching your favorite show. A stone wall anchors the eastern wall of the space and a wood burning fireplace provides a warm glow. The main floor is also home to a wonderful first-floor office that is perfect for staying organized, coordinating schedules, or simply catching up on email.

The lavish main floor master suite offers an exclusive escape from the busy world. Three sets of French iron doors open to the private south lawns and a beautiful water feature, while vast ocean views define the horizon beyond. Antique French oak floors and Venetian plaster walls offer a dreamy palette that soothes the soul. The luxe bath features incredible tile and marble work and also looks to the sea. Dual walk-in closets, including a vast dressing room, round out the remarkable suite. On the residence’s second level, a trio of bedroom suites and an office provide comfortable accommodations and work spaces.

The estate’s indulgent amenities coalesce to create a remarkable composition. Off of the main residence, a beautiful swimmers’ pool is ideal for enjoying Santa Barbara’s enviable year-round climate.


Ocean, mountain, and garden views are on full display from the expansive terraces and covered pavilions. An ocean view pool cabana, sport court, bocce court, and workout studio offer inviting destinations throughout the grounds and enhance the resort-like feel of the property.

The well-appointed guest house overlooks lush private gardens and the sea beyond. An eight-car garage, including a workshop, wine cellar, and humidor, is the ultimate playground for a collector. With such staggering ocean and mountain views in all directions, it is an unexpected pleasure to discover such witty and whimsical details among the gardens.

Visually indulgent yet perfectly refined, this organic tapestry of the grounds is woven with vibrant colors, lush textures, hand-hewn stone, babbling fountains, artistic tiles, and irresistible scents that can’t be captured in a bottle.

The resulting collection is 4.8 acres of incredible outdoor vignettes, ripe for discovery and spontaneous adventures. Allow yourself to explore stone pathways and get lost in the endless romance of it all. Whether you are enjoying morning tea among the roses, hosting a bridal brunch on the lawn, or dining al fresco under the stars, the garden districts at 4230 Cresta will leave you in awe.
