The 3,232 square foot beach-side sanctuary was owned by the skateboarder and entrepreneur who starred in MTV’s Life of Ryan from 2007 to 2009. The San Clemente native was also crowned one of 15 Most Influential Skateboarders of All-Time by Fox Weekly.
Ryan’s former Orange County home boasts four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a contemporary art-filled living space. This area seamlessly leads onto a dining terrace that overlooks the palm trees that tower above the neighborhood.
The large kitchen exhibits a brassy toned kitchen island which is drenched in light from the metallic hanging fixtures – and the golden state sun from the adjoining patio.

Meanwhile, the open-plan floor similarly showcases a dining area that is also crowned with a thoroughly modern light fixture and black and white art pieces. Alongside these assets, the property has a stylish master bedroom suite with ocean views and a spacious games room – or skateboard room in Ryan’s case, at least.
Outside, the citrus-infused estate epitomizes a Cali-cool coastal jungle and is complete with a hot tub, stone fireplace, and a cabana – to indulge in the last of the sun after a day at the shore.

Located on 304 West Paseo De Cristobal, in the southernmost city in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, the sunny splendor of San Clemente continues beyond Ryan’s former home throughout the beryl shores of the nearby T-Street Beach. There is also a selection of local European restaurants and wineries, which further emphasizes San Clemente’s slogan as the ‘Spanish Village by the Sea.’
Mitchel Bohi of Compass held the listing.
Where will Ryan Sheckler live now?
It currently remains unclear where Ryan plans setting-up home. However, the skateboarder was born and raised in the area and learned to board with his friend in the local skate park.

So, while we don’t know where Ryan will live, we’re almost certain he won’t stay too far from the city for too long.
