San Clemente offers a variety of real estate options and lifestyle choices spread throughout the nine different communities (with a 10th eventually on the way in Marblehead Coastal). However, Central San Clemente is considered the social hub of the city and features incredible diversity of real estate options; everything from a 1-bedroom condo to a 3,000-square-foot custom home is found in Central San Clemente. Central residents enjoy easy access to the beach, Downtown shopping and restaurants along Avenida Del Mar, and the San Clemente Pier. But is this area truly for everyone?
Due to the popularity of Central San Clemente, this is easily the most congested area in the city; foot and car traffic is prevalent throughout Central San Clemente as this is the main gathering point in the city. People who like to walk or bike to everything will feel right at home in Central San Clemente; also, be prepared to know your neighbors well as the majority of homes are beach-style properties built close together with little to no yard space (in beach communities, the beach is your backyard). One of the coolest things about Central San Clemente is the history…this is where city founder Ole Hanson began his vision for the city, and it can still be seen today in the red-tiled white homes sprinkled throughout the area and the Casa Romantica Cultural Center (Hanson’s former home).
For people looking to experience the true coastal lifestyle, it doesn’t get any better than Central San Clemente; you can smell the salt water and feel the ocean breezes from almost anywhere in the Central area. If you would like a tour of Central San Clemente, please do not hesitate to contact us.
