San Rafael was one of the very first communities built in the Talega area of San Clemente and is highly regarded as a great place to find a large two story single family home under the million dollar price point. These are large properties that are normally around 3,600 square feet that offer main floor bedrooms and open floor plans. Normally, the first level of the home is built for entertaining with a gourmet kitchen, dining room and large living room area. Often times these floor plans provide for a butler's pantry and a great room with high vaulted ceilings and custom fireplaces. Upstairs often offers a large Master suite with multiple walk-in closets, custom fireplace and dual Master bath sinks.
Many of the homes are located on large lots that are often over 7,000 square feet and can go as high as over 10,000 square feet. What this means is a large front and backyards that are often equipped with custom barbecue areas and large paved entertainment spaces. The front of these homes really have great curb appeal with select homes offering wrap around porches. The streets in this community tend to be on the smaller side with multiple cul-de-sac streets that offer the most in safety and desirability. Home prices are normally under $1,000,000 with some recent sales above this price point. Select homes in this area will have golf course views and located high on a hillside in the San Rafael community.
