SOLD: A Piece of Country in the City

Country in the city hoe sold!This Hope Ranch Annex Mini-ranch offers the best of both worlds

I just made another sale, this time it’s a mini ranch in Santa Barbara’s highly desirable Hope Ranch Annex that offers a piece of country in the city. Ah, country living—fresh air, wide-open spaces, a slower pace of life. What’s not to love?
Sitting on nearly three-quarter-acre, the property allows the new owners easy access to schools, services, shopping and the beautiful beaches the area is known for. The approximately 4,500 sq. ft. main home has 4-bedrooms, 3-baths, a detached guest cottage, storage barn/workshop, horse corral, oversize 2-car garage and large carport. As you can see, it holds many possibilities.
There are many benefits to living in the country, especially when you can enjoy the city, too, like the new owners of this property can do. First, country living provides more Vitamin G. The G stands for greenery. Think trees and plants, which the country, and this amazing home, have in spades. There’s also air quality. People living around more trees and grass generally experience lower levels of air pollution, which has been linked to conditions associated with asthma and heart disease. Green environments can also relieve sadness and depression.
Don’t be sad or depressed about missing out on buying this oasis of country in the city. Instead, check out my other listings. Perhaps this world class Toro Canyon Estate perched high in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains and surrounded by the peaceful sylvan setting is more your style. Or, this magnificent Cape Cod-style oceanfront estate listing featuring a wondrous home and comfortable, private guest house on nearly 1.5 acres in the prestigious gated Sand Point beach colony near Montecito, CA. Are you looking for something smaller in size yet large in prestige? If so, check out this Penthouse in the iconic Granada Theatre building in downtown Santa Barbara. My portfolio also includes a stunner located on one of Montecito’s most prestigious streets: Picacho Lane. This newly remodeled Mediterranean-style home offers mountain views and numerous custom features.
Experienced real estate agents like me know the best way to market homes that offer a piece of the country life in the city. Because of the health benefits mentioned above, they’re highly desirable in today’s real estate market. But my experience goes beyond this trend. I can sell any property in record time for top dollar. If you’re considering listing your home in Hope Ranch or any of Santa Barbara’s upscale communities, please call me at 805.886.9378 or email me at
