Dana Point has a nice selection of historic homes that can be found in different neighborhoods throughout the city.  As they rarely don't come on the market for sale they do however do come on the market on the rental market.  There are a few neighborhoods where we see them come on the market which will be explained here.  The first most popular community to find historic rental homes is the Beach Road community.  This is a private gated community that is considered one of the best places to find vacation rentals.  We get a lot of requests from those looking for weekly rentals but for the most part these are only rented by the month and typically have seasonal rates which mean higher rates during the summer months of June, July & August.  The historic

A home that was once the personal residence for the Sidney Woodruff has come on the market for sale. 24401 Santa Clara Avenue is currently on the market for $4,295,000 and has a true Wow factor to it if you enjoy Spanish architecture and historic homes.  Woodruff was one of the leading figures when developing homes here in Dana Point and is so well known that many historic homes are often referred to as "Woodruff homes."  The four bedroom, four and a half bath home has a lot to offer which includes an approximate 4,028 square feet of living space on an approximate 10,125 square foot lot which is good size lot for being so close to the beach.

What I love about this house is the central courtyard that many of the rooms open up to on both the first and

Dana Point has a limited number of historic properties that are located all throughout the city limits with a high concentration in the downtown area called the Lantern District.  For the most part many of these homes will not offer any kind of a view but there a few select historic properties that will offer nice ocean views.  Depending on your budget there are a couple great places to start your search.  First, on the high end two of the best places to look would be on either the street Beach Road or along the cliffside overlooking the Dana Point Harbor on Santa Clara Avenue.  

Beach Road is a 24 hour guard gated community that features homes that located directly on the sand.  For anywhere in Orange County this is very hard to find and this

When talking about historic homes in the Dana Point area it's very natural to bring up the names "Doheny" and "Woodruff" who were the early developers of the Dana Point area.  This dates back to the early 1920's during the same time that the neighboring San Clemente was building the "Spanish Village by the Sea."  In the same spirit, many of the homes built by Doheny and Woodruff were designed in the Spanish architectural style with great attention to details.  The city of Dana Point has gone to great efforts to identify these historic properties who's owners take great pride in keeping these vintage homes true to their original design.

Doheny homes have been built throughout the city and tend to be smaller one story homes located on the ocean side of

Driving through the center part of Dana Point and you will notice many streets that are named in the nautical theme.  Streets names like Golden Lantern, Amber Lantern, Silver Lantern, Cooper Lantern, Violet Lantern and Blue Lantern are some of the oldest existing streets in the Dana Point area that date back to the 1920's when some of the first homes were built here in Dana Point.  The city has always had a very strong maritime connection with the Dana Point harbor where you will find many of the property owners yachts parked here today.

The street of the Golden Lantern is large street that starts at the Dana Point harbor and goes all the way to the Dana Point and Laguna Niguel city limit line.  Golden Lantern basically cuts through the middle of the

Dana Point is a city that is rich in history and dates back to the early 1920's when some of the first homes were built here.  The downtown and Capistrano Beach area is the most populated area for these older homes that are often built in the Spanish architectural style.  Located on the beach are a small handful of historic homes that are considered beach front since they literraly sit next to the sandy beach.  This area of Dana Point is often referred to as Beach Road or Capistrano Bay.  The community has changed dramatically since the 1920's as many of the homes have been built on the empty lots with huge Mediterrean and Contemporary style homes.

Beach Road still has 5 historic homes that still exist on this beach front street and have a lot of charm
