Santa Margarita

Santa MargaritaSanta Margarita is one of the most rural areas in San Luis Obispo County. Santa Margarita Lake, a major water source for San Luis Obispo, is located several miles southeast of the town on the Salinas River.  The town is small with one main street with shops, businesses, and wine tasting.  It is just a short distance to Hwy. 101 and therefore San Luis Obispo can be reached in less than 15 minutes.  Atascadero adjoins to the north.  As you drive east, there are some nice homes and vacant land parcels within 15 miles.  However, what is confusing is the land located about 1 hour to the east and is in what we call California Valley.  Land is priced extremely low and that is because it is isolated, hot, and no services.
