Southeast San Clemente Homes and Condos
While San Clemente offers ocean view real estate in virtually every area of the city, few places can match the number of homes with panoramic views that Southeast San Clemente provides. Due to the sloping hills east of the 5 Freeway, the Southeast area homes offer incredible views with little to no obstruction; on clear days, one can see the coastline from Dana Point to as far as La Jolla along with Catalina Island in the distance. While Southeast San Clemente contains some of the oldest communities in the city, the panoramic ocean views simply cannot be beaten.
Southeast San Clemente provides a nice mixture of single-family homes and condo communities with the added benefits of no Mello-Roos assessments and no leased land. Southeast San Clemente contains 8 single-family home tracts and 7 condo communities. The majority of real estate in this area was built in the 1960s and 1970s, although the villa-style homes of Sea Ridge Estates were built in the mid-to-late 1990s. The proximity to hiking trails and San Clemente State Beach Park is very appealing, especially for people who like being outdoors a lot. The streets are very windy and small, so driving through the area can be a bit tricky (very similar to Laguna Beach in this regard); however, there is little thru traffic in this area, so the roads are rarely congested.
Southeast San Clemente Homes
Views are the name of the game when thinking of purchasing a Southeast San Clemente home. With closer proximity to the ocean than places like Forster Ranch or Rancho San Clemente, the Southeast area offers incredible coastline and city views yet is still a short distance to the beach and the entertainment options of Downtown San Clemente. A lot of the homes are a bit older in this area, making this a great opportunity to purchase real estate at lower pricing and make it into your dream home. These hillside ocean view homes are the most affordable of this housing type relative to ocean-view real estate found in the communities to the north of Dana Point, Laguna Beach, and Newport Coast.
