Default Best part of Central coast for rural living

I would like to know if there is such a thing as a affordable 20+ acre parcel with house mobile on it where it does not get over 80 in the summer on the central coast.

In a word, No. Most of the really rural areas are more inland and the summers are hot. I'm in a more affordable area and it's been in the 90s all week and was in the 100s for a few days last week. I hate it. I can't afford to live where it doesn't get over 80 anymore.

I completely agree. I live inland on the central coast and thats where you are going to find the acreage and it does get hot. Last week the high was 107 and this week it is suppose to be 90. The cost of land is quite high, too.

There is a reason why the Central Coast is expensive, because, it is cool, among other things. 10 miles from the coast and the temps climb exponentially.

Default What do you consider affordable?

We live in Los Osos and there are some ranches and farms between our coastal town and San Luis Obispo that have GREAT weather! You may want to check it out. Of course, developers are snatching them up to build high end housing in this perfect climate. Now is the time with the dip in the market, but soon there may not be anything left.

20 acres near the coast could cost as much as a million. California Valley is the least expensive acreage near the coast, but summers are very hot.

Possibly look around in the area of Elkhorn Slough, close to Moss Landing. Look on the rural backroads in this area.
