At a Glance


With a documented Native American history dating back more than 6,000 years, Hope Ranch began its transformation into the verdant, upscale residential enclave it is currently when it was named for government agent Thomas Hope in the mid-1800’s.


What to Expect


Today, 700 private residences — including luxury estates perched on bluffs overlooking a private beach and panoramic views of Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands – comprise this coveted place.

Its residents enjoy 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.




Many owners of Hope Ranch estates are equine enthusiasts drawn to the enclave’s more than twenty miles of trails traversing the public areas and leading to the beach. There’s a popular Riding Trails Association, and the Earl Warren Showgrounds, famous for its horse showing facilities, is just five minutes away by car, as are many of Santa Barbara’s world-class shopping, dining, cultural and recreational amenities.
