San Juan Capistrano Chapel

California’s Town of the Swallows

San Juan Capistrano real estate is a fantastic blend of old and new, with hillside gardens, Spanish missions, and tasteful modern villas. Ideal for those who want the luxuries of Orange County with the historic qualities of a sleepy seaside Spanish town, San Juan Capistrano pulls a different crowd than much of the rest of the county.

Older than all of its neighboring cities, San Juan Capistrano’s beginnings are in the Spanish mission the city is named for in 1776. The neighborhood it falls in, Los Rios, has the distinction of being the oldest residential neighborhood in California. The style of homes in San Juan Capistrano is varied, as multiple neighborhoods have been built and rebuilt since its original inception. Spanish and Mediterranean styles are a continuing theme, and homebuyers can find most housing types for purchase throughout the city. Pricing is heavily varied as well, with homes in the high hills fetching a premium.

A few popular neighborhoods in San Juan Capistrano include:

  • Palisades
  • Mission Villages
  • Sun Ranch
  • Mesa Vista
  • Four Oaks
  • Campanilla
  • Hunters Creek
  • Capistrano Estates

San Juan Capistrano is home to many avian residents as well, notably a protected group of cliff swallows that return every year from Argentina to nest. The swallows are celebrated yearly in the Swallows’ Day Parade. Visitors and locals alike delight in visiting Mission San Juan Capistrano for the historical buildings and gardens, while hikers enjoy Trabuco Canyon and Caspers Park in the eastern hills. Nearby San Clemente and Dana Point provide easy access to surf and sand, and the expansive Pacific view beyond.
