When you dream of a property perfect for creating a personal paradise, this will be what you imagine. First time on the market, this 1970s ranch-style home on approximately 1.5 acres is the perfect opportunity for someone to buy in an area of gracious estates at an “entry level” price in Hope Ranch. Set on a flat, usable parcel, with approximately 90 producing avocado trees and numerous citrus trees, the home is a welcoming abode. Still embracing the 70s contemporary style, the step down living room has soaring vaulted ceilings with a stately brick fireplace. A formal dining room is close by, with french doors opening to a spacious patio area. The kitchen, with breakfast area, offers functional space and design. The family room/den, with blue tile fireplace, offers great space for game night or quiet time. Beyond the family room is a bedroom wing with three generous bedrooms and two full bathrooms (one is en-suite). The laundry room/utility room connects the three car garage to the home. The master bedroom wing is ideally located on the opposite end of the home and offers plentiful closets and bathroom space.
This property is situated in the heart of Hope Ranch – a hidden treasure in Santa Barbara. Hope Ranch offers its residents private roads that wind through hills dotted with majestic oak trees. Take a drive down the Hope Ranch Beach – a privately accessed paradise for residents and their guests. Once at the beach, enjoy the quiet and pristine sand. During summer months the beach has lifeguards, a small snack bar and “cabana boys” who will set up a shade structure for you in the sand (first come, first serve). There are bathrooms for guest use, as well as kayak/SUP storage available to rent. Multiple picnic grounds/bbq areas and a nice playground area are located off the parking lot. For the equestrian in the family, enjoy miles of trails that meander through Hope Ranch.
If you are looking for a home on a flat parcel, with room for horses, a pool or possibly a guest house look no further. Bring your architect and landscape designer and let them work their magic.
