Nestled between the sea and mountains in the exclusive Hope Ranch
community, an approx 13-acre site spans across two of Santa Barbara’s most premiere parcels to showcase an enchanting French country estate. Private gates open to an expansive residence with breathtaking grounds. The drive winds past the charming barn and across a bridge over a peaceful stream and adjoining pond, arriving at a grand motor court and porte-cochere.
Beautiful stonework adorns the home’s exterior while a charming wishing well sits in the entry’s courtyard, all adding to the romantic appeal. Inside the spectacular main home, pitch-beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces, French tile and inlaid oak floors create a warm and elegant atmosphere. A grand living room, family room, den and library offer endless opportunities for shared family time or privacy. The country kitchen boasts state-of-the-art appliances, two walk-in pantries, and a welcoming breakfast area. The formal dining room features a romantic fireplace and picturesque courtyard access, while the basement wine cellar could set the stage for intimate dinner parties.
Master Suite: The stately first-floor master suite enjoys a private spa and lap pool, encircled by a rose garden with stunning ocean views. Mirroring the expansive scale of the bedroom, oversized his-and-hers bathrooms and walk-in closets offer the ultimate luxury—her closet with built-ins and a laundry area, and his bathroom with an adjoining fitness room or private lounge.
Upstairs, four large bedroom suites each have stunning hillside views, generous closets and full bathrooms, while a fantastic media room provides a welcoming hub around a fireplace and wet bar. Outside, an impressive wrap-around stone patio and sprawling lawns overlook a lighted tennis court with viewing pavilion and a lagoon-style pool, providing plentiful space for both entertainment and family recreation. The deluxe pool house with kitchenette and full bathroom is ideal for a gym, guest quarters or even an art studio.
At the front of the property an exceptional stable hosts three horse stalls, each with run-ins, a feed room and an attached groomsman’s apartment adjacent to the riding ring. For the avid equestrian, Hope Ranch offers a marvelous riding trail system throughout with beach access.
Adjacent to the four-car garage, a further building has a full bathroom making it an ideal detached office or staff quarters. Completing this exceptional estate is a private walking path with exclusive access to Hope Ranch Beach—a highly coveted privilege to a famed piece of California coastline. Romantic meandering pathways, vast lawns, elegant gardens, and incomparable sea and mountain views make this property truly enchanting!
