Ole Hanson was the founder of San Clemente and was the person who had the vision of many of the older Spanish homes from the early 1920's and 30's that you see today in San Clemente. During the 1960 and 70's many of these homes were torn down in pursuit of building larger homes and condo buildings. Luckily, many of these homes were preserved and have become the rich heritage that San Clemente is proud to be associated with. These homes can be found in the older sections of town which are the Southwest San Clemente, San Clemente Central and San Clemente north neighborhoods.
The homes tend to be on the smaller side with two to three bedrooms and range anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet of living space. Many of these properties rarely come onto the open market since there is a high demand and a very limited number of these homes. Prices can vary a lot depending on the neighborhood as the Southwest San Clemente is the most expensive area. Expect to find Ole Hanson homes over the $1 million dollar point in this neighborhood as the starting price for single family homes is now approaching $800,000.
The San Clemente central and San Clemente north neighborhoods will be much more affordable and will typically start in the $600,000 to $700,000 range. There are many of these homes that are considered pocket listings are are available for sale but not on the open market.
