If you are in the market to find San Clemente gated community homes for sale under $800,000 then we recommend the following three locations. The first location is the Vittoria community located in Talega. This gated community shares the common gated area with the upscale "Catania" area and features large two story Mediterranean style homes for sale (see picture below). A recent home just came on the market there for $750,000 that features over 3,000 square feet with peek views of the ocean. The home has the main living quarters on the ground level with living, dining and family rooms. There is even a downstairs den/office that could be used as a bedroom. Upstairs features 3 additional bedrooms with a large master suite with it's own private view deck. The Catania and Vittoria homes have nicely upgraded granite and stone surfaces as well as some of the best curb appeal for homes. If you are looking for a gated community home under $800,000 this home is a must see. Another area to consider is the Mandalay community. The Mandalay community shares the gated entrance with the Pacific Shores community and features one and two story Spanish & Mediterranean style homes. It's not uncommon to find a nice single family home in this community for around $650,000 but be prepared to bid quickly on these kind of priced homes as they tend to sell very quickly. The community is conveniently located above the Lowes shopping center and just 5 minutes to the beach. For those looking for a senior 55+ community then the Waterleaf and Wavecrest community in Talega is a great place to find homes in the $600,000 located behind the gates. Both of these community homes are located in the "Talega Gallery" which is home to four different community that shares the same common gate and has many activities for it's residents. These are three great choices for those who prefers to security of a gated community. Please contact us for any additional information on these communities or any homes that you find on our website.
