Located just north of Santa Barbara, Hope Ranch offers an upscale lifestyle just minutes from its private beach and over 20 miles of equestrian trails. The area is named for Thomas Hope who ran a sheep ranch on the land in the mid-1800s.
Today, this verdant 2,000-acre enclave of gently rolling topography, stunning landscapes, and magnificent ocean views has nearly 700 residences, many of them luxurious estates perched on dramatic bluffs. Residents have access to a private beach and within short drives of two public beaches. Palm trees line the beautiful main thoroughfare, Marina Drive, which parallels a well-known coastal bicycle route.
Hope Ranch is known for its cornucopia of recreational amenities including polo and soccer fields, baseball diamonds, tennis courts, and the exclusive La Cumbre Golf and Country Club featuring an impressive and historic 18-hole course built around beautiful Laguna Blanca.
The community is also known as an equestrian playground. It has an active Riding Trails Association chapter and features over 20 miles of equine trails traversing public land, some leading to the beach. In addition, the Earl Warren Showgrounds, famous for its horse-showing facilities, is located just minutes away across Highway 101.
