Perched on a broad mesa overlooking the ocean to the south and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the north is the elite, palm-lined community of Hope Ranch.

With a history dating back 245 years and encompassing approximately 1,863 acres of rolling knolls and live oaks, the entire area was once owned by an Irish immigrant, Thomas W. Hope. Incorporated in 1924, membership to the Hope Ranch Park Homes Association is automatic upon purchasing property in the Ranch, and offers an array of privileges including exclusive access to the private beach, an elaborate network of bridle paths, tennis courts and security service. Laguna Blanca School, located in the heart of Hope Ranch, is an outstanding, private educational institution providing best-in-class schooling from grades kindergarten through twelfth. Hope Ranch is also home to La Cumbre Country Club with an18-hole golf course and the exquisite body of water itself, Laguna Blanca.
