34932 Camino Capistrano

This house is right across the street from Pines Park in Capistrano Beach. Houses on this street don’t come up for sale very often!

4 bed, 2 bath

Here’s why I think this is a great buy:

  • You can see the ocean through the trees of Pines Park–need I say more?
  • The house actually includes a 3-bedroom, 1-bath home plus a guest studio with a kitchen and bath–perfect as an in-law suite, or if you have a frequent guest or renter
  • There’s opportunity to build up (or out) on the property and make it the beach house you want
  • Close to both downtown San Clemente and the Dana Point Harbor
  • You’re a 10-minute walk from Doheny beach
  • Highly-rated schools: Palisades Elementary is an 8, Shorecliffs Middle School is an 8, and San Juan Hills High is a 9

My pick this week is a 1929 historic home in Capistrano Beach. These properties don’t come on the market very often and, when they do, they don’t last long!

Here’s why I think this is a great buy:

  • The home is beautiful, with Spanish style construction, a central courtyard, and patios off every room
  • For a 1920s home, it’s got a lot of square footage (about 1900 square feet)
  • It’s move-in ready–also rare for a historic home. Central air and heat have already been included, so need to worry about that
  • The location is great: Walking distance to Pines Park, a half mile drive (or walk) to the beach, and close to all the action in San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, and San Clemente
  • Value, value, value. These historic homes tend to hold value over time because of how unique they are

Spotlight on: Pines Park

Right in the heart of Capistrano Beach, there’s this gem of a park called Pines Park.

True to its name, the park is dotted with pine trees–so many that you might forget you’re near the beach. In fact, you’re right next to the beach. This park has some of the best views in Capo Beach, which explains the high price tag on homes near it. My wife and I have come here to watch many a sunset.

Amenities include a playground–great for kids–as well as BBQs, picnic tables, and benches. If it’s a holiday weekend (like 4th of July), be sure to snag a table early. Speaking of 4th of July, this is a great spot for watching fireworks. You can see from San Clemente to the Dana Point Harbor. Most people leave their beach chairs there in the morning to save a spot.

Every time we visit this park, there are rose petals, remnants of a recent wedding ceremony (yes, the park allows weddings. Learn more here). We see lots of people doing prom pictures here, too. Clearly, I’m not the only one who thinks this park is something special.

One note: This is in a residential neighborhood, so there is no parking lot. You just park on the street. Oh, and don’t just trust what I have to say about this park. It’s got 5 stars on Yelp and Trip Advisor. Enjoy!
