The San Clemente community called "Portofino" in the Talega community is named after the street "Calle Portofino" which is one of the main streets in the community. Portofino homes are known for their Traditional and Mediterranean flare with large two story homes typically located on very large lots. Home prices currently range from $575,000 to $699,000 with both homes being listed as short sale homes. A good majority of single family homes under the $700,000 range are listed as short sales so It's important you educate yourself on the process. Theses prices are great deals considering the Portofino community saw a sale in June of this year for $805,000! As with other communities in Talega, home ownership in the Portofino neighborhood qualifies you for the many amenities that Talega has to offer including multiple swim club houses, championship golf courses and many outdoor activities including hiking trails. One of the main draws to the Talega area is the new construction amenities and uniform look to the architecture of the homes. Portofino homes were built less than 10 years ago in 2003 & 2004. If you are looking for a well established community with homes priced under $700,000 then Portofino may be the community for you.
