Riskin Associates is proud to announce a fantastic new listing, one of Hope Ranch's most historic and enchanting estates. Spanning across 8 lush acres, this circa 1930 residence was expertly designed by notable architect Roland Coates. Defined by classic East Coast elegance, the main residence's colonial achitecture is an idyllic complement to Santa Barbara's coastal culture.

The main house boasts eight bedrooms while two auxiliary structures offer 5 additional bedroom suites creating a wonderful compound locale for extended holidays and daily living alike.
The gracious yet casual interiors are rich with original details, paneled walls, built-in storage and oak floors. A handsome bar sits between the charming sunroom and the home's exquisite library. Cloaked in walnut paneling, the library offers an peaceful space for quiet leisure.
Tasteful updates throughout meld perfectly with original character, creating a transcendent property with both historic and modern appeal. A lavish butler's pantry connects the gracious dining room to the eat-in chef's kitchen. Each culinary space has been beautifully appointed with top of the line appliances, marble finishes and ample storage, ideal in an estate designed for entraining.
Outside, the grounds are a fantastic mingling of artfully manicured gardens and casual oak forests. Stone lined paths wander the grounds past a tranquil koi pond toward the lighted tennis court.
