San Clemente Real Estate is unlike any other in Southern Orange County. Pulling influence from the Indian and Spanish settlers living near the Mission San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente combines the beauty of the past with the visions of the future.
Ole Hanson, first developed San Clemente Real Estate by purchasing 2,000 acres of land in 1925. Through preservation efforts you can still see the Spanish Colonial style of Ole Hanson’s architecture throughout the city to this day. San Clemente Real Estate, whether residential or business, is still built with Ole Hanson’s signature red tile roof and white stucco in mind.
Having expanded greatly over the years, San Clemente has grown from its original 2,000 acres to 19.468 square miles with nine distinct areas. These area include, Southeast San Clemente, Southwest San Clemente, Central and North San Clemente, the Coastal District, Forster Ranch, Marblehead, Rancho San Clemente, and Talega.
The newest of San Clemente Real Estate is Talega. This master planned community was developed in 1999 and contains over 40 different communities. The properties have a uniform look with a mix of single family homes and condo communities that have been planned around their neighborhood school, Vista Del Mar.
Coastal District and Forster Ranch
The Coastal District tucked in on the east side of the freeway, consists of mainly single family homes with most having golf course or ocean views. Right next the Coastal District you will find Forster Ranch. With this area of San Clemente Real Estate being a little farther away from the ocean, you find large lots with a Spanish/Mediterranean style. Developed in the 1980’s these single family homes and condo’s are a great starter home for any family.
San Clemente North is a mix up of ultra exclusive neighborhoods and small beach cottages With many of these properties having ocean and Catalina views.
Rancho San Clemente
Rancho San Clemente is the smallest of San Clemente Real Estate areas. Rancho San Clemente is a premier location on top of the ridge line above San Clemente High School. Designed around two main streets most of these homes will have ocean and Catalina views.
The Marblehead area consists of two condo communities and five gated single family home communities. These communities share a neighborhood park with tennis and basketball courts. Marblehead is one of the most desirable areas in all of San Clemente.
San Clemente Central is also known as “The Pier Bowl”. Located in very close proximity to the San Clemente pier you will not find a most diverse area of San Clemente Real Estate. San Clemente Central is made up of historical homes that were developed by Ole Hanson, smaller beach cottages, duplexes, triplexes and four-plexes and many vacation rentals. This area of San Clemente Real Estate has kept the original Ole Hanson feel to it throughout the years with many of the homes having been preserved as historic homes.
San Clemente southeast is currently undergoing revitalization. You will find many different styles of homes in the part of San Clemente with many homes high on the hills you will have oceans views, Catalina views and city light views.
Probably the most unique of all San Clemente Real Estate is Southwest San Clemente. The majority of the original 2,000 acres of San Clemente can be found here. This area has that small town feel to it. With many homes built on double lots, these homes are in walking distance to the beach and to the downtown areas of San Clemente. This area was made famous in 1969, when Richard Nixon bought an estate here known as “The Western White House” and is still there to this day.
