Hope Ranch Gets their 1st & 2nd Historic Landmarks!

March 6, 2012

Hope Ranch, which is rich is history, was given the gift by the Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors on March 6, 2012 when they approved the Bryce Hope Ranch Beach Cabana and the Irene & Frances Rich Beach Cabana as Santa Barbara County Historical Landmarks.

Can you believe their have been none before?

Rare do you find homeowners who are willing to give to the community the opportunity to enjoy a portion of their property by restricting what they can do with the structures in the future.  Today we have 2 such owners….Thank You to Geoff & Alison Rusack who have allowed their Beach Cabana and funicular to become the 1st Historic Landmark in Hope Ranch and Lee and Julia Carr for allowing their Beach Cabana to be the 2nd designated Historic Landmark in Hope Ranch…..WOW what a great day and giving people!

Buyer’s Looking in Hope Ranch

To my Hope Ranch Neighbors,

Do you know of a Hope Ranch home for these Buyer’s?

1.  Finished single story home with elegance, flair and style, not too big please, under 3,000 square feet would be best.  Outdoor space should be inviting and easy care, pool ok, the Buyer has a pool service they trust to make it easy to own.  Up to $3,000,000

2.  This wonderful family wants to live the Hope Ranch Lifestyle!  With 3 young children they need at least 4 bedrooms and like a large flat backyard.  Would rather move right in, but for the right house would consider doing some work.  Curb appeal is desired!  Willing to spend around $3,500,000 for the perfect home to raise their children.

Summer Rental Need

3. Are you going away for the summer?  I have a great client that is looking to rent a home for June, July and part of August in the Hope Ranch area.  I will personally verify they are great tenants!  Would like to stay around $8,000 but will consider higher for a great home for their family to enjoy.

Please call me if you, or someone you know has a home that fits the needs of these great soon to be Hope Ranch families!
