Real Estate in Hope Ranch, CA
Hope Ranch real estate was purchased in 1861 by the enclave’s namesake, Thomas Hope, who raised sheep on the land. (Much of the wool produced by Hope’s flock went to make uniforms for Civil War soldiers.) The Southern Pacific Railroad purchased Hope’s property after his death in 1876 and by 1900 had announced it planned to build villas with the intention to market Hope Ranch, CA real estate as the “playground of the world.”
