Active Hope Ranch Homes: Since December 1st, three homes have come on the Santa Barbara real estate market in Hope Ranch. This Santa Barbara estate, designed by Don Nulty, is located at 405 Via Hierba; privately hidden away and immaculately landscaped on 1.8 acres yet still close to La Cumbre Country Club, shopping, schools and the beach. The hardwood floors, three fire places, open beamed trussed ceilings, marble surfaces and custom cabinetry this Santa Barbara property are dramatic and beautiful, yet extremely livable.
Hope Ranch Santa Barbara is an exclusive enclave of homes near the beach that also offers close proximity to downtown and shopping and dining. There are roughly 500 homes, all of which have larger parcel sizes, most of which are over 1 acre. The homes are nestled into the landscaping and miles and miles of horse trails in such a way that you achieve maximum privacy while still having somewhat of a connected feel to the rest of the community. There is also a stunning golf course, clubhouse, and a private beach and park for the neighborhood, as well. Properties sell for $1,400,000 to $40,000,000, and not a single property has sold for less than that in the last handful of years, even the smaller lots and houses on busier parts of the neighborhood. Many Hope Ranch home buyers purchase the home for the “lot” value alone, while others purchase to obtain the many charming features and extensive remodeling.
