The exclusive community of Hope Ranch is a hidden gem set on the Pacific coastline just north of Santa Barbara. Once homeowners are lucky enough to grab a piece of property here they rarely decide to leave. Fortunately, this lovely French Country estate recently hit the market and could be yours for $5.2 million.
It is secluded among mature oaks, Monterey Cypress and lush greenery that give it a truly storybook setting. Many homes in this community are set on rolling hillsides, but this lot is special as it is 1.5 acres of flat, fully usable land to sprawl out on to take in the sunny Santa Barbara afternoons or count the shooting stars at night.
French doors, high ceilings, custom knotty alder cabinetry, travertine floors in a Versailles pattern, European Larch wood floors and wainscoting are a few elements of this home’s genuine craftsmanship. An airy great room opens to an artisan chef’s kitchen, which includes new custom cabinets, Crema Marfil marble countertops, farmhouse sink and a sculpted stone hood. A LaCanche range handcrafted from France as well as an additional Viking oven, Miele dishwasher and Sub-Zero fridge and freezer complete this foodie’s dream.
Although located near world-class amenities and entertainment available in the city of Santa Barbara, this home offers all the peace and tranquility anyone could desire. You can hear the waves crashing on the shore of Hope Ranch Beach, which the new owner will have private access to along with other members of the community. During sunny Santa Barbara afternoons you may catch a glimpse of riders on horseback enjoying the many equestrian trails that wind throughout the rolling hills surrounding the property. If you’d like to get out and about, but don’t wish to travel too far from home, the renowned La Cumbre country club, Community Tennis Courts and Hope Ranch Riding Club are all within the community gates. Simply put, this Santa Barbara estate is coastal California living at its finest.
