CLAIREMONT MESA (92117) Community Profile

CLAIREMONT 92117Clairemont 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.
