Although the history of Hope Ranch in Santa Barbara dates back at least 6,000 years to the time when this was home to the first Native Americans living here, this upscale community’s modern history began in the mid-1800’s when it was named for government agent Thomas Hope.
Today, this verdant 2,000 acre enclave of gently rolling topography, stunning landscaping and magnificent ocean views hosts just under 700 residences; many of them luxurious estates perched on dramatic bluffs and with access to a private beach. Hope Ranch is known for its cornucopia of recreational facilities, including polo and soccer fields, baseball diamonds and tennis courts, as well as the exclusive La Cumbre Golf and Country Club with its impressive and historic 18-hole course built around beautiful Laguna Blanca.
Also known as an equestrian playground, and with an active Riding Trails Association, the Ranch hosts over 20 miles of equine trails traversing the public areas and leading to the beach. The Earl Warren Showgrounds, famous for its horse showing facilities, is a mere five minutes away.
Santa Barbara’s world-class shopping, dining, cultural and recreational amenities are all within a few minutes drive.
