Mesmerizing is the spell cast by the natural splendor of Santa Barbara. Officially christened The American Riviera, it is no surprise that world travelers find their way here to enjoy her lush climate and pristine Pacific coastline. Truthfully, the true allure of Santa Barbara is so much more than a postcard perfect paradise for vacationers.

Beneath her veil of beauty and serenity is a thriving community of business, government, technology, medicine, agriculture, education, arts, history and culture.  All of these vital elements are seamlessly interwoven creating a spectacular place to visit and an even more wonderful place to live.

For those fortunate enough to call Santa Barbara home, there is a vast array of real estate choices offered by the amazing diversity of her geography alone.  Whether it is seaside or mountainside, foothills or valleys, there is a comfortable setting worthy of those with even the most discriminating of tastes.

One of the featured properties is located in exclusive Hope Ranch, a private community within Santa Barbara. Over decades of time, Hope Ranch provided wonderful amenities to its various residents.  Thanks to Harold S. Chase, who purchased portions of the Ranch, he was able to develop his dream of a quiet secluded community. Today, Hope Ranch enjoys that dream with beautiful equestrian estates,  access to a private beachfront park and riding trails throughout the Ranch.  “Via Esperanza” with exceptional Architecture and Design, offers that dream with stunning views on 1.85 private acres.  For a photo tour you can visit
