San Clemente Homes & Condos for sale
Located on the south end of the Pacific Coast Highway, San Clemente is the last city in the southern tip of Orange County, and borders with San Diego county. San Clemente is known for its ocean, hill, and mountain views, famous surf, fantastic climate and its Spanish Colonial style architecture. San Clemente's city slogan is "Spanish Village by the Sea". About the time that its neighboring city to the north, Dana Point, was being developed, Ole Hanson, a former Seattle Oregon Mayor, designed a community that he named San Clemente after the island that lies off shore. So, around 1925, the first homes in the San Clemente real estate market, known today as Ole Hanson Originals, were built. These homes are Spanish style stucco homes with red tile roofs. As there were few, if any, jobs in the area as whole, most of the people who bought homes in the San Clemente real estate market were either retirees or people buying vacation homes. The San Clemente real estate market continued on as a quiet beach front area until President Richard Nixon purchased a Spanish mansion in the southern part of town known as Cotton’s Point. This became the “Western White House” and San Clemente real estate was definitely now on the map. From the 1970s on, the town has grown but in a rather small town way. San Clemente real estate market will continue to expand in the back country that borders Camp Pendleton and there are many opportunities to buy small, older homes and either expand or rebuild. Many of the older vacation cottages that sat on prime land have already been re-developed making beautiful, luxury homes available on prime Pacific Ocean Coastal land.
