You are about to explore a part of California that many outside of the state have yet to discover; the Central Coast. Here you will find descriptions of the character of the communities that make up the Central Coast and what makes this part of California a destination location.
The Central Coast encompasses communities that stretch from north to south from Pismo Beach down to Grover Beach. Many young professionals have moved to the Central Coast from LA to the south and San Francisco to the north to find more affordable coastal beachfront properties and single-family homes.
The Central Coast Communities
Atascadero is one of the largest communities in San Luis Obispo County on the Central Coast with a population of nearly 30,000. It is a rural community full of ranch style homes and wineries.
Templeton, where I was born and raised, is a laid back small community filled with horse aficionados who move here to find expansive homes with plenty of acreage for stabling their horses for less than they would pay elsewhere.
Storied Paso Robles is a land of rich and plenty. Centuries ago the hot springs all around the area were discovered and ever since, people come from far and wide to dip their toes in the fabled “healing” springs of Paso Robles…and to take in some spirits from the 25,000 acres of vineyards.
Santa Margarita is an artist haven where folk musicians, writers, and jewelry makers earn a good living. Situated at the foot of the Santa Lucia Mountains the views from this area are simply spectacular. San Luis Obispo, the largest of the Central Coast communities was the largest Mardi gras outside of New Orleans up until 2005.
Finally, when you live in Five Cities, CA, you are never too far from the beach. The five communities that make up the area each offer beachfront properties. Explore these amazing communities and then talk to me, Ted, about buying or selling a home on the Central Coast!
