May 28, 1995 | JEFF BEAN, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
When Kitty and John Purvis moved from San Clemente to Rancho Carrillo in 1975, they roughed it. There was no telephone service or electricity. They watched TV on a small black-and-white model powered by a car battery. Back then, $16,000 could buy a 2 1/2-acre lot atop the hills 15 miles east of San Juan Capistrano. Today, the community counts about 60 homes, and land is no longer so cheap. Modern conveniences may have arrived, but in many ways, time stands still.
