Clairemont is a hillside community that welcomes new families and retirees and is named in honor of the developer’s wife, Claire Tavares. Carlos Tavares and Louis C. Burgener envisioned a ‘City’ within a city in an area once covered with scrubs, rattlesnakes, and jackrabbits called the Morena Mesa. Development in the 50’s created acres of homes with features like spacious bedrooms, big picture windows, fireplaces, and walls paneled with Philippine mahogany. This community has eight points of entry from State Routes 52,163 and Interstate 5 and 805. Kearny Mesa industrial park is nearby. The community has three public libraries, Tecolote Canyon preserve and park, four shopping centers, a community college, three high schools, junior/middle schools, and twelve elementary schools. Nearby communities include Linda Vista, Mission Bay, and Pacific Beach. Feel free to use our convenient search tools to find your Clairemont Real Estate.
