San Clemente has many different neighborhoods that can offer private backyards if you know where to look. It seems like the latest trend in real estate is to build new homes close to each other which sometimes seems to come in the lieu of offering privacy between properties. For the most part it's always best to look in older and more established neighborhoods as these were often built on larger lots. This is especially true for some sections of the Forster Ranch and neighborhoods by the beach in San Clemente.
The first place we recommend looking is the Forster Ranch of San Clemente. While this area isn't the oldest community in San Clemente, homes in this area are well known for having large over-sized lots. This is especially true for the large majority of the homes that were built here in the 1970's. There are several section of Forster Ranch that offer newer construction homes like the Reserves and Forster Highlands so make sure you are looking in the older area to find the largest lots that typically over the best privacy.
Another area is the Southwest San Clemente area. This community is located on the ocean side of the 5 freeway and offers custom homes built between the 1920's to 2020's. It's important to note that not all homes will over total privacy but some of the lots here back to a natural canyon preserve and offer a great deal of privacy. The appreciation of homes here is also very appealing as there always seems to be high demand of clients that want to live here.
There is also a neighborhood located on the north end of town called Harbor Estates. it's located east of the freeway and can offer nice panoramic ocean views. Select properties in this neighborhood also have private backyards which is always an added bonus.
