Forster Ranch Real Estate

The aesthetic appeal of Forster Ranch lies in the heavy Spanish influence of the architecture and landscaping. The single-family homes and condos offer beautiful brick and stonework, red tile roofs that are a signature of San Clemente real estate, and lush landscaping with everything from small rose bushes to sky-high palm trees. Cul-de-sacs are plentiful, and many of the homes provide views of the gorgeous San Clemente coastline, hills, and canyons.

Forster Ranch's earliest homes were built in the early 1970s, followed by significant expansions in the mid-1980s and early 2000s. Home shoppers looking for properties in great condition will be in luck here as the HOAs of the communities take great care of the grounds and common areas throughout the district. There are no Mello-Roos bonds, and none of the properties sit on leased land.

Single-family homes comprise the majority of housing stock, and there are a few gated communities for those looking for additional security. Most houses are tucked into large canyons or sit on rolling hills. Homes in Forster Ranch are well-kept or remodeled with modern upgrades and designer touches.

Condo and townhome options exist among the numerous single-family tracts, including the luxury Del Cabo community with some of the largest townhomes in San Clemente.
