Santa Barbara real estate is a great investment. Hope Ranch is a private community in Santa Barbara that offers space, privacy, serenity and beauty. For the buyer looking for a property that is a blank slate, this is it. Set in Hope Ranch, surrounded by upscale estates, this ranch style home on a level usable acre is ready to be transformed into a dream estate. The current home is approx 2850 sq. ft., with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living room opens to a sunroom that lets natural light shine in. The footprint of the kitchen offers great space to design a gourmet kitchen, with room for informal dining. A separate dining room is close at hand. Two bedroom wings create a flexible living arrangement for a variety of lifestyles. A peak of the ocean from the property adds to the ambiance.
A circular driveway leads to the home from Marina Drive, but there is also driveway access from Creciente. Hope Ranch Beach is a short drive away and offers Hope Ranch residents and their guests a pristine beach through the privately accessed gated entrance. Miles of equestrian trails meander through the Ranch for the horse enthusiasts.
Hope Ranch is a treasure in itself. Palm lined drives, miles of meandering equestrian and walking trails and a pristine (privately accessed) Hope Ranch Beach create a peaceful environment for the 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.
