Hope Ranch is a magical community of 773 lots encompassing 1,863 acres and one of the few California communities with its own private beach access. Situated in the southeastern portion of Santa Barbara County between Highway 101 and the ocean, Hope Ranch is one of the rare remaining horse communities with over 25 miles of manicured horse and walking trails. Whether you ride or not, feasting your eyes on a gorgeous horse trotting up the road or galloping down the private beach alongside children surfing will surely bring you back in time. Hope Ranch consists of a broad flat mesa and low rolling knolls broken by a magnificent valley and covered with splendid live oaks. The scenery from the home sites on the knolls is indescribably beautiful. Landward you will find the purple mountains of the Santa Ynez range and the green foothills crowned in the distance by the famous old Santa Barbara mission. Seaward, the Santa Barbara channel, the Channel Islands and the broad Pacific greet the eye.
Hope Ranch and Santa Barbara are known the world over as possessing the most even and delightful climate to be found anywhere. Here in this land of perpetual summer, where the sun shines brightly 250 days out of the year, where the nights are cool and pleasant, where the surroundings are picturesque and pleasing is an ideal place to call home.
