This area of San Clemente real estate is the most historically rich of San Clemente.

The homes are beautiful, the people are friendly and the area itself is breathtaking.

One of the nice things about living in Central San Clemente is that you will have quite a few different types of properties to choose from. For example, for those on a slightly tighter budget you may

Located in the central area of San Clemente, the Coast District is one of the most conveniently located subdivisions in the Little Spanish Village by the Sea. Not only will you enjoy a lush landscape of rolling hills, beautiful ocean views and a slightly elevated position over the rest of the city, but you'll also enjoy reasonable home prices and friendly people, too. Most of the houses in the Coast District are single-family homes with one or two stories, occasionally including a basement as well. Most of the homes are in the the $600k to $1m price range, with a few outliers in either direction. There are definitely homes available under $600K, but they are generally in high demand and thus will be sold fairly quickly – You'll have to check the listings

This historic San Clemente landmark is one of the best places to get a spectacular ocean view in all of San Clemente. The 1000+ foot San Clemente pier is a breathtaking trek out into what feels like the middle of the ocean.
