Talega Real Estate
Situated a few miles inland from the beach helps Talega homes prices lower than other coastal Orange County communities. Security and safety are the norms here as most tracts feature cul-de-sac streets or secluded locations with little thru traffic. There are even a few gated communities.
Homebuyers will find everything from a 3-bedroom starter home to a 7-bedroom estate here.
Construction of new homes started in the late 1990s. Architectural styles are predominantly Spanish and Mediterranean. As is the norm with contemporary and suburban housing developments, houses are built closer together than mid-century subdivisions. Buyers should be prepared to get to know their neighbors well. Properties on larger lots tend to be a bit more expensive.
Because Talega is newer and almost completely developed, there are not a lot of opportunities as in other San Clemente areas to buy a house and rehab it.
Talega Condos and Townhomes
Modern living defines the condo communities found throughout Talega. The majority of condo options in Talega are multilevel attached townhomes.
