5,288 Sq Feet
One of less than a dozen properties in the City of Santa Barbara with private beach access, this sanctuary is a true rarity. Years of meticulous renovation have brought this oceanfront hacienda to it’s full potential. Boasting a new 3200 sq.ft addition, (now totaling over 5500 sqft.) this gated paradise is the epitome of Southern California living. Designed for effortless entertaining, wall-to-wall sliding doors from the kitchen, dining, and family rooms, make for easy access to the pool, outdoor fireplace and Palapa. After a long day of fun in the sun & sand, all your guests will have ample space to retreat to their own lavish comfort. For more intimate gatherings snuggle in around the fire pit for smores at the viewpoint edge; de-stress in the spillway hot tub amidst ambient crashing waves; or sip local varietals in the wine lounge & cellar. The flexibility in entertainment space is endless. Elevated approx. 200 ft. above sea level, this bluff-top escape sits on 1.5 acres of unparalleled panoramic ocean & island views. Secluded and serene, a flock of pelicans, school of dolphins, or the occasional hang glider are just a few of the whimsical amusements you will come to love at this retreat.
Years of close attention by the owners has resulted in a beautifully refined structure and landscape. Every inch of the home has been tooled and retooled to give each space a sense of belonging and timelessness. The pool area is nestled between the family room and the property line where it faces west into the sunset. Surrounding the pool and jacuzzi is a palapa that creates a barrier and a backdrop from the neighbors next door while also framing the perfect location for al-fresco dining. A small dirt path leads away from the palapa towards the ocean, where you'll find a perfect little patio perched on the edge of the property. From this location you can see all the way down the coastline and admire the landscape in seclusion and privacy. A large swath of grassy lawn separates the common areas from the master bedroom suite which also has its own patio. You can just imagine waking up to the sound of ocean waves out your door, stepping out of bed and only a few feet away is a breathtaking view to start your day!
Natural wood tones and soothing white walls are the hallmark of this home. Impressive structural beams are visible in most of the rooms, where vaulted ceilings draw your eyes up, and large windows keep you focused on the beautiful views. The 25-room house has 7 full bathrooms, 4 of which are en-suite. The ground floor is separated in the middle by a circular turret that holds stairs to the upper level and distinguishes the public side of the home from the private bedroom side of the home. The public spaces include a bonus room/loft, kitchen and pantry, living room, family room, and a sitting room with a secret bookshelf wine cellar! The private side of the home includes the master suite, 3 additional bedrooms, laundry, and a lovely turkish bathroom with a sauna. The upper floor is perfect for entertaining - the large space features a generous bar area that opens on both sides to the main space and a smaller more intimate space which opens towards the ocean and a fantastic view patio. A full bathroom on the upper level allows you to turn this into a guest suite or possibly an in-law apartment.
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.

It’s a paradise of golf, horseback riding, recreation, and fine living. Amid historic palms, Hope Ranch presents the most exclusive of lifestyles.
