About Hope Ranch

Hope Ranch

Hope Ranch is Santa Barbara’s unique residential community and is one of the most beautiful hidden enclaves on the Santa Barbara coast.  Incorporated in 1924, Hope Ranch is known for its palm tree-lined main streets, the privately accessed and pristine beach, miles of riding trails and the equestrian community. Hope Ranch embraces a variety of residences, from sprawling ranch homes to luxurious estates, nestled on private acreage with varying topography. The 1863 acres of land (with approximately 773 parcels) offers gently rolling knolls that take advantage of the breathtaking views. Some homes enjoy the sparkling views of the blue Pacific Ocean, Channels Islands and coastline, while others look out over the majestic Santa Ynez mountain range, Goleta Valley and Santa Barbara. All are able to enjoy the beauty of the stately oak trees and natural flora that grace the tranquil hills and valleys in the Ranch.

The location of the Ranch is unsurpassed.  The easy access to the US-101 freeway makes travel a breeze. Downtown Santa Barbara and Goleta are just minutes away, and the Santa Barbara Airport is approximately 10 miles from the Ranch. Shopping, entertainment, fine dining and museums are close by, as well as excellent schools – both public and private. If one is planning on going to Los Angeles, it is just 100 miles away, making a day trip easy and fun.

Hope Ranch and Santa Barbara are known world-wide for having a delightful climate year-round (known as the land of summer, where the sun shines the majority of the time). Hope Ranch is a sought-after exclusive residential community for those seeking the outdoor, beach or equestrian lifestyle.
