Among the cutest bungalows positioned on a prestigious tree-lined street, this 1948 cottage is the quintessential classic southwest San Clemente beach house. Located on the 200 block well away from the freeway offering nearby access to excellent sandy beaches and fun surf, this home sits in an ideal spot within this extremely desirable neighborhood. Elevated up above the street, this single level home offers two bedrooms and one bathroom, a single car garage with two driveway parking spots, living room with gas fireplace just off the vintage kitchen and dining niche, several archways and vaulted ceilings throughout, and ample outdoor space between both the substantial front and back yards. This coastal charmer reminiscent of another era features a flag pole, massive grassy yard and covered stoop. The 4,700 SF lot offers opportunity to remodel or expand upon the existing 1,140 SF cottage (add a bathroom, add a second level, or expand into the front yard) or, build an entirely new custom home well under top-of-the-market new construction retail cost. 25’ height restrictions allow for a sizable new home. Ocean views from the second story and even more expansive views from a roof deck could be achieved. Other values include proximity to year-round world-class surfing at Trestles to the south and walkability to downtown to the north, beachy lifestyle nearby amazing Riviera, Lost Winds, and T-street beaches, fine dining nearby, a 2.5 mile beach trail, and an overall laidback community. The first time in many years this home has been offered to the open market, homes in this prime location at this price point are rarely available.
