Casa Colibrí: A Sublime Spanish-Style Sanctuary in Hope Ranch

Inside the coveted coastal enclave of Hope Ranch lies this stunningly renovated Spanish-style estate—a sanctuary of understated luxury inspired by the architectural undertones of George Washington Smith. Casa Colibrí (“House of the Hummingbird”) truly stands in a class of its own. Every inch of this estate has been thoughtfully, meticulously, painstakingly reconditioned to restore the home to its authentic roots. The magnificent result is a classically Spanish-style yet thoroughly modern estate, exuding a masterful combination of charm, comfort, architectural detail, and stylistic integrity.

The amenities afforded in this impressive 3.25-acre estate check all the boxes and then some: a 7,100+ square-foot home with private guest quarters, a 3-car garage, a saltwater pool and spa, a lighted tennis court, a horse stable and fully fenced pasture area, a chicken coop, an enclosed garden, a kids’ play structure, a bocce court, an ocean view gazebo, and acres of ecologically conscious landscaping indigenous to California. Hope Ranch association amenities include private gated beach access and picnic areas, private security, and 22 miles of equestrian trails.

The expansive home exhibits an alluring blend of intimacy and scale. Six bedrooms—including upper and lower level primary suite options—ensure ample space for family and guests. Indoor and outdoor spaces are seamless extensions of each other, offering a sense of harmony with the surrounding landscape. Exquisite attention to detail is evident at nearly every turn: exposed wood-beamed ceilings, intricate tiled flooring, period-correct oak flooring, inviting fireplaces, iron sconces and metalwork, large windows that welcome abundant natural light, and French doors leading to numerous patios and terraces.

Like the beautiful and often-elusive hummingbird, an opportunity of this caliber and quality is bound to fly away just as quickly as it appeared. Experience the luxury of beautiful precision at Casa Colibrí!
