You have probably pictured what your ultimate Southern California beach-close house would look like, with lots of sunshine and plenty of outdoor living space. Now you can own it at this remodeled and upgraded San Clemente home, which blends chic soft-contemporary cues with an indoor/outdoor vibe that can’t be beat. Sleek wood privacy walls embrace the residence and create a hidden ocean-view retreat that welcomes panoramic vistas of the azure Pacific, shimmering evening lights, and scenic canyons and coastal hills. Extending approximately 8,085 square feet, the home’s terraced grounds offer an array of inviting outdoor areas, including a front patio and deck, a rear deck, lower-level lawn of water-saving synthetic turf, and, down one more level, a charming, detached home office or studio. Slide-away glass doors welcome these alluring spaces indoors, where a single-level design of approximately 1,282 square feet redefines open-concept living. With a nod to Mid-Century style, the front door features glass inserts and leads to bright and airy living and dining rooms crowned by a vaulted open-beam ceiling. A contemporary fireplace enhances the living room, and the dining room, which opens to a deck through slide-away glass doors, displays a unique and stunning accent wall finished with bark from a 300-year-old oak tree. Only the finest appointments are featured in a newly remodeled kitchen with stone countertops, a tile backsplash, white Shaker cabinetry with glass uppers, a breakfast nook, pantry, a new sink and faucet, a Viking range and a Fisher & Paykel two-drawer dishwasher. Two bedrooms and one bathroom are offered, including a primary bedroom with opaque glass sliding privacy doors and direct access to the rear deck. The secondary bedroom opens to a shaded patio, and the bathroom showcases a quartz countertop and designer tile. Wood flooring, new plumbing, a new sewer line, outdoor speakers, an outdoor shower, and a one-car garage with storage and driveway parking are featured. Located in central San Clemente, the home is minutes from beaches, the pier, Dana Point Harbor, exceptional schools and a wide selection of recreational attractions.
