Rancho San Clemente is one of my favorite area for showing clients who are looking for Ocean View homes. When homes were first built in the mid 1980's this area was prime for hundreds of ocean view properties. Once complete, the Rancho San Clemente area is a wonderful combination of single family home communities mixed in with condo and townhome style residences, many of them offering incredible views of the ocean as pictured below. San Clemente is known for it's many rolling hills and Rancho San Clemente is one of the highest points in the area. Home communities gradually go up the hill maximizing the views for all the homes. Properties located at the top of the ridge have some of the best ocean views to be found in the San Clemente area. Clear views of the coastline and the Headlands area of Dana Point can be seen on a clear day. Also, views of Catalina Island as pictured below is truly amazing.
Prices for ocean view properties currently start around $300,000 for a small 2 bedroom condo in the Vista Pacifica complex. The condos located on the "front row" will have great views of the ocean and is a tremendous deal for the price. One thing to keep in mind when buying here though is the high HOA dues which are currently north of $400 a month. One of my favorite townhome communities is Villamorua as pictured below.
The homes are light and bright with vaulted ceilings and stunning ocean views. View properties start in the mid $500,000 range. You will also find large luxury homes that will be priced north of $1 million dollars. For the most part this community has some of the best pricing for ocean view properties in San Clemente. Below are the current ocean view homes for sale in the Rancho San Clemente area.
