Hope Ranch is a place like no other in the Santa Barbara area. As you pass under the filigreed sign suspended across Las Palmas drive, you feel as if you’re entering a world all your own. Towering palms line the main drive, and a feeling of serenity is ever present throughout the community. It is situated in the western portion of the Santa Barbara area between highway 101 and the ocean, and encompasses 1,863 acres. The broad, flat mesa and low rolling knolls are punctuated by a magnificent valley of live oaks, which makes it an ideal location for equestrian-minded residents.


Hope Ranch real estate includes elegant french country homes, Mediterranean villas, equestrian estates and everything in between. Homes sites were developed to enjoy a variety of views from the landward purple mountains of the Santa Ynez range to the seaward views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. Governed by homeowners since the 1920s, Hope Ranch prospers from a heartfelt sense of community and concern for the quality of life of every resident. A golf course and country club, small lake, private beach and 22 miles of bridle paths are just some of the benefits of living in this elite residential area.
