Imagine owning a property set on 4.5+/- acres in the rolling hills of Hope Ranch – a private community in Santa Barbara, California. A long driveway leads you to a gentle knolltop with a sprawling home built in the 1930’s and expanded in the 1950’s. As you enter the home you will realize it is still embracing the style of the mid century architecture, characterized by clean simplicity and integration with nature. Ample windows and an open floor plan create a sunny space with natural light streaming in the floor to ceiling windows.
The current floor plan offers numerous possibilities for remodeling. The spacious living room flows into another gracious family room area – each room boasting its own fireplace. The kitchen footprint is large enough to create a dream kitchen to meet your every desire. You will also see that there is a wonderful butlers pantry opening to what was originally the dining room (currently set up as an office). Two bedroom wings are on opposite ends of the home. The main wing includes a spacious master bedroom with two bathrooms (original) and a dressing room. Beyond are two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom. On the other side of the home, off of the kitchen, is the other wing (originally set up as utility room and service quarters) with two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Hidden from view on the land are a few structures, including a detached two car garage with a fabulous workshop area, a covered parking/storage area and a very old barn. A driveway leads down to these structures for easy access. Also on the property is a charming cottage with fireplace (no plumbing). Imagine having a yoga studio or art studio in your own backyard. With so much land surrounding this home, the new owners can create their dream estate with distant views of the ocean by Campus Point, Goleta Valley lights and the colorful Santa Ynez Mountain Range. The possibilities are endless for what you can add to this property – a guest house, pool, horse facilities, mini orchard… Let your dreams become a reality.
Hope Ranch is a treasure in itself. Palm lined drives, miles of meandering equestrian and walking trails and a pristine private Hope Ranch Beach create a peaceful environment for the privately situated estates and residences. Close to schools, shopping, fine dining, parks, the harbor, airport, cultural venues, La Cumbre Country Club, golf and downtown Santa Barbara & Goleta, Hope Ranch is the ideal location for a primary residence or secondary retreat.
Santa Barbara offers a wonderful climate year round and is a fantastic place to call home.
