January 7, 2016 Golf Course Club House

In 1908, the Pacific Improvement Company announced plans to make Hope Ranch into a “playground of the world,” and thus the Potter Country Club was born. A $10,000 Clubhouse was built on Carosam Road. It was surrounded by a golf course and was the forerunner of the present La Cumbre Golf and Country Club. When the club moved to its present site, the old clubhouse became the Gun Club, used for skeet and trap-shooting. Years ago, the house was converted into a private residence.

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!
