Life in the gated community of Chelsea Pointe in Dana Point, California, offers many luxury amenities, and is located just a few short steps to some of the world’s finest beaches that lead to the Pacific Ocean.
The upscale neighborhood of Chelsea Pointe features property that is typically above a million dollars. The location of these homes makes them highly valued. It’s situated on the Pacific Coast Highway’s ocean side near Strands Beach, where you’ll see many beautiful beachfront homes. There are 30 homes in this community that were built between 1984 and 1985. Most range from 2,010 to 2,200 square feet, and feature two to three bedrooms. Residents enjoy being able to walk to Salt Creek Beach, Strands Beach, and Monarch Beach, which features the world-renown Ritz Carlton. This community is minutes away from the Dana Point Harbor, where you’ll find charming shops and world class restaurants. There is even a motorized Funicular, which takes visitors to and from Strands.
Chelsea Point is served by the Capistrano Unified School District, which offers facilities like Richard Henry Dana Elementary School and highly ranked Marco Forster Middle School. Dana Hills High School is also top notch and opened in 1972, making it one of the oldest high schools in the region. Its cross country team has won several state titles. There are also several private schools in this city, such as Broderick Montessori School, South Shores Christian Preschool and Kindergarten, and Capo Beach Christian School.
The City of Dana Point is a popular surfing destination as it has one of the few Orange County coast harbors. It was named after Richard Henry Dana, Jr. who wrote Two Years Before the Mast, describing this area as the “only romantic spot on the coast.” The harbor is now bustling with activity and features a replica of the Pilgrim, Dana’s ship. And today this is a California Historical Landmark.
