A place of privacy, privilege, and grandeur, Hope Ranch is one of the most envied places to own a home in the world, an unincorporated suburb of Santa Barbara. The Hope Ranch Park Homes Association (established in 1924) keeps watch over this most elite collection of fabulous estates. Immaculate landscaping blankets the gently rolling hills of the grounds, perched overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with views of the mountains as well. Only about 700 homes exist, and they sell for millions, sometimes millions upon millions upon millions,
to those seeking a uniquely idyllic setting for a life of luxury. Owners enjoy a private beach, polo fields, tennis, soccer, and the Hope Ranch Riding Trails Association, which oversees 20-plus miles of trails leading right down to the beach. It’s a paradise of golf, horseback riding, recreation, and fine living. Amid historic palms, Hope Ranch presents the most exclusive of lifestyles.
