Hope Ranch Estate

Price Upon Request

Behind the private gates ...

Hope Ranch, known as an enclave of upscale estates with lovely drives through canopies of California Oaks, streets lined with 80 year old Palms, views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands, and the magical views of the purple hills of Santa Ynez Mountains. Truly a special place to call home with an elaborate network of interweaving bridle paths, winding for 20 miles in all directions, and a separate road that leads to the private gated beach area for residents and their guests only, that offers cabanas, bathrooms with showers, a snack shack, and kayak storage. Hope Ranch has community tennis courts, La Cumbre Country Club, and the highly rated Laguna Blanca school for grades K-12.

Tucked behind two private gates, on one of the most coveted roads in Hope Ranch, is the estate and compound of a well-known actor/ director/ writer who has resided here with his family for the last 28 years. Private, and extremely peaceful, this 6400+/- sq.ft manse is situated on 1.5 acres of level land with special features that include a 20’x50’ fully custom tiled pool, tennis court recently resurfaced in U.S. Open blue, and separate private 1 bedroom guest house with living room and gardens.

The large home includes: 5 oversized bedrooms with in-suite baths, a formal Living Room with marble fireplace and hearth, a step up to a formal Dining Room, and a large Family Room off the kitchen, also with a fireplace. The exceptionally large master suite boasts a “his and hers” separate in- suite bathrooms and an oversized walk-in closet…. Actually as large as a bedroom. The upstairs suites feature ocean and island views framed by majestic trees and lush palms. Additionally, with its own private entrance and separate access to the pool and deck area, is a bedroom suite offering privacy for family visitors, or live in quarters for help. Currently this space accommodates a living room, bedroom, bathroom and office.

Interior doors lead from every main room to the outside entertaining area, with lovely patios, a custom tiled built in BBQ, pool with Jacuzzi and outdoor shower, and expansive lawns leading to the tennis court. This family compound was designed to be sport friendly, and the stunning tennis court has basketball court capabilities, with two hoops as another usage. Additionally there is room for putting greens for the golfers, bocce ball and horseshoes, whatever the mind can imagine.

The Romantic Guest cottage is a sheer delight and is located at the back of the large property. Sliders open to the secret garden area, or to the large backyard of the residence. It has its own pathway to the property orange grove, where its current resident picks fresh oranges every morning to make her organic juices.

The vistas of the foothills in one direction, and the views of the ocean through the lovely foliage, make this home feel like a vacation paradise year round. Those that have had the good fortune to live in Hope Ranch will tell you it is a place like no other.

This too is a property like no other.
