Extremely rare and exuding the ideal combination of casual beach charm and elegant coastal living, this Mills Act approved 1926 Ole Hanson cottage is one of a kind. Hanson, who founded the city of San Clemente, is renowned for his distinctive style of Spanish-influenced architecture. Professionally remodeled down to the studs and expanded in 2017, the home carefully retains the original look and feel of its historic Hanson character while incorporating state-of-the-art technology and building techniques. Now spanning 1,464 s.f., the cottage displays open-beamed stained-wood vaulted ceilings, oak floors and Saltillo tiles, maple cabinets, copper sinks, Taj Mahal quartzite countertops, barn-style doors, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Open to the living room, a new kitchen is appointed with stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, a pot filler over the 6-burner gas cooktop, a custom tile backsplash and a custom glass sliding pocket door to the back patio. A similar door enriches the new master suite, which features a luxurious bath and walk-in closet. A look behind the scenes is equally impressive, with all-new electrical and plumbing systems, tankless water heater, new HVAC, and a new tile roof crafted to original 1926 Ole Hanson specifications. Grounds feature all-new landscaping and hardscaping, including a gated front patio with fountain and fire pit, new concrete driveway with parking for 5, a detached garage, and a private rear patio with gas fireplace and wall fountain.
