Santa Barbara’s Hope Ranch

Santa Barbara’s Hope Ranch

Hope Ranch is a Santa Barbara community most of us are incredibly fond of. Its lushly landscaped trails and private roads make it one of Santa Barbara’s most desirable areas of Santa Barbara. In 1861, Thomas Hope purchased the land for a total of only $8,000. Mr. Hope felt that the land is the ideal spot for herding his sheep to make uniforms for soldiers fighting in the Civil War. After Hope’s passing in 1876, the land property was bought by the Southern Pacific Railroad for $250,000. After plans to build a luxury resort fell through, the land was bought up again by Harold Chase in 1923. Chase installed roads and bridle trails before proceeding with the development of a residential community. Instead of building each estate himself, Chase decided on selling lots to people who wished to construct their own home, that way, each estate would be unique. Hope Ranch is now a community of 773 lots covering 1,863 acres. It is found between Highway 101 and the Pacific Ocean. The estates are nestled between flat mesas and low rolling knolls covered with splendid live oaks.
