Clairemont Real Estate
Clairemont is a community on the northern edge of the city of San Diego with a relaxed, bungalow-residential feel. A great place for families and people looking for a short commute to the downtown area or up to La Jolla, Clairemont takes its name from the original developer Carlos Taveras' wife, Claire. The buildings are mostly single-family residences with some rental property and retail stores, making for a desirable location and an ease of lifestyle that is in keeping with its history as one of the first suburbs of San Diego.

Clairemont is one of the most established neighborhoods in San Diego and includes the areas of North Clairemont, Clairemont Mesa East, and Clairmont Mesa West. Bordered by Highway 52 to the north, Interstate 805 to the east, Interstate 5 to the west, and the neighborhood of Linda Vista to the south, Clairemont was originally built during the post-World War II building boom of the 1950s and has retained the charm of that era to this day, with nicely maintained houses and yards, and affordable living within easy reach of the beaches, North County, and downtown.
There are many good restaurants in the neighborhood such as Dino’s Greet Café and Mucho Gusto, as well as entertainment in the form of a skate park, public parks, Pacific Theaters, Sunset Bowl, and great shopping in retail outlets.
Clairemont is a great place for someone looking for an older, established area with great ambience, at affordable prices, in a safe, unassuming neighborhood.
