These dramatic increases are reflecting the Cambria district’s well levels are as low as they’ve been since 1988-1990 which was the final years of Cambria’s six-year drought.
Cambria real estate is currently in a building moratorium causing the value of most lots to drop in value, some being sold for under $10,000 while others on the ocean going for $2M+. The building moratorium is planned on being relieved somewhere near 2011 with the building of a desalinization plant that will distribute water hookups to 800 Cambria parcels. The parcels receiving hookups are all reserved on the Cambria water wait list comprised of about 650 positions, some of these positions are being sold separately from the lots themselves.
There are currently 78 water positions being sold in Cambria from $87,000 for position 606 to $299,000 for position 12 and $389,000 for a water hook-up to build now.
Though the water situation in Cambria is complicated it hasn’t detracted the desirability of this charming small town on the Central Coast of California called Cambria Pines by the Sea. The local community thrives on tourism and the public events like the 4th of July fireworks, the annual Pinedorado, the many car shows throughout the year, and the ever famous Hearst Castle in San Simeon.
