Extremely dialed in, this quintessential Southwest San Clemente beach house is truly a gem. Sited on one of the most sought-after streets, this single-level charmer offers rare qualities for the area having an expansive ocean-view front deck, a long/wide and pavered gated driveway, oversized garage (room for potential third suite/office carve-out at rear of garage), and a generous lot. Upon arrival, a crisp emerald blue ocean horizon catches your attention to the west from a low-maintenance composite deck with room for dining al-fresco and neighborly outdoor lounging. A picture frame Dutch door (or optional slider) leads to an exceptional great room. Porcelain wood-tile floors run throughout the open kitchen and living room creating one contiguous and open space all under crisp vaulted ceilings with a newly engineered rustic ridge beam. Expanded upon from original, the home has an all-newly updated kitchen with custom white shaker cabinetry, subway tile, exotic leathered granite counter tops, high-end Fisher&Paykel stainless appliance package, another Dutch access door and an electronic Velux skylight(with rain sensor). A truly beautiful & beachy kitchen, seamless with the living room that features a gas fireplace (burning-wood capable), wired surround sound, and all-new recessed lighting. Down the hallway is a newly-updated and high-end guest bathroom and two generous bedrooms at the back of the home. The primary suite offers direct access to the rear yard and a spa-like bathroom all with heated flooring. An oversized walk-in shower with dual shower heads, large glass enclosure, bench seating and pebbled-floors enhance the leathered vanity with shaker cabinetry (consistent in both bathrooms). Highly upgraded throughout, the home features custom shaker cabinetry, solid-core shaker doors, upgraded electrical trim-out, stainless ceiling fans, subtle recessed lighting, contiguous flooring, Hunter Douglas window treatments, all-new white vinyl windows, new wall heaters, new siding, and beautiful landscaping. Outside, the backyard has been highly-upgraded with a substantial quartzite bar top, in-line gas BBQ, mini-fridge, H/C outdoor shower, dedicated storage unit behind garage and surfboard storage, turf, and an electronic louvered privacy pergola all finished with high-end paver patio. For those seeking a laidback, beach lifestyle close to amazing beaches, fine dining, a 2.5 mile beach trail, world class surfing, and great community, this is your opportunity!
