San Clemente is a town full of history and character with a close-knit community.
Though many Southern California communities are known for their celebrity residents, San Clemente is known for its coveted location and proximity to the coast and T Street, the “T” being short for Trafalgar. Surfers, boogie boarders, and beach lovers would all agree that this is the place to be.
The neighborhood vibe is right out of an old Surfer Magazine where the streets are populated with Volkswagon Vanagons and Type 2 Busses, woodies, Chevy Nomads, and Bugs. When the surf isn’t happening or after the sun has set, these same neighborhoods come alive with dog walkers and folks out for a stroll, neighbor greeting neighbor. You’ll get used to hearing the word “swell” a lot in conversations.
“Any surfer worth his gill slits knows T street, and the thought of living so close would be, well, gnarly.”
Along with Trestles and Cotton’s Point, T Street is a mecca for surfers and San Clemente’s dedicated beach-going population. Locals know the neighborhoods along the coast side of El Camino Real, between the pier and San Clemente State Park, are a haven for those who crave the surf, sun, and sand.
137 W. Avenida Santiago is on the corner of S. Ole Vista and Santiago and close to it all: T Street, the shops, and restaurants on Del Mar, the pier. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and is a 2,800-square-foot home that epitomizes the coastal San Clemente lifestyle.
Sandy and salty after a day catching waves? No problem. A full shower is accessed from the rear yard. Go for it.
