The Southeast San Clemente area is a great place to find ocean view homes in San Clemente, California. Most San Clemente buyers typically want to live near the beach but soon learn that real estate prices are normally very high and have limited ocean views. They soon find that the best value for the money is often found in the hills of San Clemente where you will find panoramic views and large square footage houses for the same prices that you would find a small beach cottage by the beach. This area in the hills in commonly referred to as the "Southeast San Clemente" area and is a popular choice for those looking for panoramic ocean views.
The below photo was taken from a home in this area and is a good sample of the kind of ocean view that you can find in the Southeast area. Views of the San Clemente Pier and Catalina Island can be seen by many of the homes located here. One of the only downside of this area is that many of the homes are older and may need renovating to bring up to current modern standards. A lot of homes were built in the 1960's and 70's and have the older Spanish look and feel to them. Some of the properties can also be located near the freeway so if you are sensitive to noise keep that in mind when looking in this area.
One exception to this rule is the homes located in the gated community of Sea Coast Estates. This is a well kept community filled with large and expansive homes that overlook the ocean looking south towards San Diego. The home are located off the street Avenida Salvador which is the premier street for ocean view homes as they are located at the top of the hillside looking down towards the water. These are typically very expensive homes that sell well over the one million dollar price point.
For those on a budget you may want to consider the homes located in the Presidential Heights neighborhood. These are smaller homes that often have some of the best ocean and golf course views. They are situated directly above the San Clemente municipal golf course are can be found in the mid $500,000 to $600,000 range. Ask your local Realtor to show one of these homes to see if you like the look and feel of the property and neighborhood.
The Southeast neighborhood is very large and is generally found on the east side of the 5 freeway from the San Diego boarder line to the central San Clemente area. Homes at the very south end are located next to the San Clemente municipal golf course with homes offering both ocean and golf course views. Real Estate prices normally start in the mid $500,000 for an ocean view property and can go as high as $2 million dollars. There are many individual neighborhoods that have their own unique style and personality so we recommend consulting with us on the kind of home you are looking for.
