Hope Ranch Haven Santa Barbara

Hope Ranch is a coveted private community on the Santa Barbara map. Rolling hills, meandering oak-lined lanes, equestrian properties, oceanfront estates, and rural natural beauty define this beloved association of prestigious homes. 






Hope Ranch Haven is ideally located near the iconic Las Palmas entrance to Hope Ranch across from the seasonal lake and golf links of La Cumbre Country Club.

The mid-century modern ranch-style home was designed by world-renowned architect Cliff May in 1947, whose claim to fame is having conceived of, and created, the iconic "ranch house" known for its linear, single-level design. With updates to the home's original design, the modern result is a cheerful and bright vacation home with a long list of amenities and spaces that offer effortless indoor-outdoor living at its finest. 

In addition to the 2,200 square foot main house, there is a detached guest suite with a full bath and laundry, a newly built 1,400 square foot barn with two 1-car garages, and an upstairs bonus room ideal for the "work-from-home" guest or artist. There is even a covered parking area for recreational vehicles. 

True to form, the home is laid out linearly in the center of the 1.4-acre property, resulting in two expansive yards, each with its own unique features. The front yard boasts a vast lawn for energetic guests to run and play, a covered terrace for year-round outdoor dining, and a built-in firepit for after-hours enjoyment. The outdoor kitchen features an authentic wood-burning pizza oven, a Big Green Egg charcoal grill/smoker, a wok/single-burner stove, a warming drawer, and an in-counter cooler. Bistro lights illuminate the space after hours. 

A unique color palette in the bright and cheerful kitchen makes this culinary space a joy in which to work. Lime green quartz counters contrast white cabinets and subway tiles. The vibrant mango-colored Capital range may be whimsical, but it is the kitchen's workhorse for sure, complete with a griddle for Sunday morning pancakes! French doors open to the terrace, making it easy to keep an eye on the pizza oven and dinner on the grill. Yummy! 

Just off the kitchen is a guest bedroom with a queen-size bed, an attached bathroom, and an exterior door for added autonomy and easy access from the motor court.

Central to the home's floor plan, a comfortable, elegant living room features a gas fireplace, TV, and two comfortable couches. Sliding glass doors open to the vast front yard where views of the majestic Santa Ynez mountains draw attention to the stunning surroundings that Hope Ranch is known for. The adjacent formal dining room features dining for eight, comfortably.  

In the wing off the living room, the primary suite with a king-size bed opens to the front yard and enjoys scenic mountain views, a cedar-lined walk-in closet, and a TV. The elegant attached bath features a large glass shower, a luxurious soaking tub beneath picture windows overlooking the rose garden, and a door to the hallway for added convenience. On the same wing is the third bedroom with a queen-size bed and two adorable fold-out desks to give students in the group a place to finish up their homework before heading outside to play.

Because of the mild climate drawing guests outdoors frequently, the home's family room is a beautifully designed outdoor room.  Paneled in richly stained wood and outfitted with a sectional, hanging gas heater, tv, speaker system, and bright lime green curtains that add a fun pop of color and screening, this outdoor room is perfect for year-round indulgence. Large barn doors can be left open to welcome arriving visitors and offer access to the motor court or closed and locked for additional privacy.  

One of the most clever elements is the outdoor shower adorned with a vintage wooden surfboard. However, the younger set may argue that this property's two-story playhouse and surrounding artificial turf lawn is way more fun! Other amenities outback include a second dining table under a retractable sunshade, a second firepit, and raised garden beds with a bounty of kale, tomatoes, herbs, and more. However, the true gift of the yard is the lush, mature orchard with 26 trees bearing apples, citrus, avocados, figs, nectarines, blood oranges, peaches, and so much more. Delicious!  

As locals call it, "The Ranch" is drenched in natural beauty and a country-like rural charm that will have visitors returning again and again. Guests will also have access to the private Hope Ranch Beach, making this the ideal vacation getaway. A stay at Hope Ranch Haven means relaxation, comfort, seamless indoor-outdoor experiences, and a whole lot of fun...enjoy!
