San Clemente is a small beach town with a wide range of real estate prices. Single family homes now start just under $600,000 for a single family home located on the north side of town. The luxury real estate market typically comprises of homes priced between $3 to $10 million dollars and can be found in some of the best neighborhoods like Sea Pointe Estates, Cyprus Cove and Cyprus Cove. San Clemente also has a small niche ultra luxury market for homes priced over the $10 million dollar price point. These homes are almost always located in the ultra-exclusive Cotton Point neighborhood where the former Nixon White House is located. These are large scale homes that were originally vacant lots not too long ago and were part of the overall compound for the Nixon Estate.
To get to the Cotton Point neighborhood you will need a local Realtor as your guide as it's located within a 24 hour guard gated community. In fact, once you pass the guard gates you still have another gated entrance you must pass through in order to gain access into this neighborhood. The Nixon White house as pictured below was on the market for sale last year at $75 million and then lowered the price down to $69 million. The home is no longer on the market as it did not sell. There are currently two listings in this neighborhood that are currently listed at $17,900,000 and $49,000,000. The home listed at $17,900,000 is located directly across the street from the Nixon Estate and features 8,823 square feet on a 32,300 square foot lot. The latter home listed at $49,000,000 is one of the most prized lots in Cotton Point and situated at the very end of the cul-de-sac. The 12,765 square foot ocean front home sits on the bluff front overlooking Trestles surf break and located on over 2.5 acres of land. This is arguably the best lot in all of San Clemente with the ultimate in privacy and panoramic views.
