Embraced by towering palms and mature tropical plantings, this ocean-view Spanish villa occupies a prime hillside homesite near the beach in San Clemente. A long driveway with parking for six guests leads to the home, which measures approximately 3,233 square feet and reveals a first level with bonus room and two-car garage. Upstairs, the main entry level is bright and open, with a beautifully tiled fireplace, living room, dining room and kitchen providing an awesome place for indoor/outdoor living thanks to a large front deck and a private backyard. Granite countertops with a full matching backsplash shine in the gourmet kitchen, where an island, white cabinetry, a wine refrigerator and stainless-steel appliances make mealtime a breeze. High beamed ceilings, wood and Spanish-tile flooring, crown molding, fresh paint, numerous sets of French doors, plantation shutters, whole house audio, built-ins and a solar power system increase the villa’s style and efficiency. Four bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths are showcased, with the primary suite revealing an oversized sun terrace with ocean views, a walk-in closet, multi-head shower, colorful tile work and a stand-alone tub. Private grounds extend nearly 7,750 square feet. Miles of San Clemente beaches are minutes from home, and downtown’s pier, restaurants, shops and parks are close by. I-5 makes it easy to reach points north and south, including San Diego, Dana Point, and Laguna and Newport beaches.
