Time to choose yours.
FIND YOUR HOME IN CLAIREMONT
Clairemont is located east of La Jolla and north of Mission Valley, along the Interstate-805 corridor. Originally started in 1951, the area quickly became the largest subdivision within the city, and the fastest growing subdivision in the country.
One of the largest villages in San Diego, Clairemont is a melting pot of inhabitants from young families to retired folks who have been living in the same house for 60 years. After the Vietnam War, many Vietnamese, Laotian and Hmong families settled in Clairemont and now the neighborhood is home to wonderful Asian restaurants and markets.
Clairemont is centrally located to Mission Valley, the downtown city core, the beaches, and the rest of the county. It has the quiet streets and low crime often associated with suburban life. There are hiking trails, a nature reserve and a golf course. Housing prices are relatively reasonable in Clairemont and many homes are situated among rolling hills, taking advantage of canyon views.
