From its unparalleled location on a prestigious cul-de-sac street at the very top of San Clemente’s Talega collection, this luxurious Alta home is perhaps the very finest within the entire community. Enjoy panoramic hill, canyon and evening-light views from most rear-facing locations. Crafted in 2015, it is among the newest within Talega and has been phenomenally upgraded with only the finest finishes and appointments. Grounds that span about 12,401 square feet call to mind world-class resorts with amenities that include a large saltwater pool and spa, an intimate courtyard, a covered front porch, raised vegetable gardens and planters, an outdoor shower, stone hardscaping, and a wraparound heated California room with a linear fireplace, TV, and a kitchen with grill, cooktop, sink, beverage cooler and black granite countertop. Inside the solar-powered turnkey residence, which embraces approximately 5,263 square feet, a luxe five-star hotel vibe is amplified by highly sought-after upgrades that include wood flooring, custom chandeliers, high ceilings, designer paint, plantation shutters, custom built-ins, and custom white Shaker cabinetry throughout. The height of comfort is achieved with five ensuite bedrooms, five-and-one-half baths, two main-floor offices, an upstairs bonus room with built-in entertainment center and kitchenette, a two-car garage with gym, and an oversized laundry room with ample cabinetry. A double-height entry with grand staircase introduces the two-story design, which hosts a formal dining room with built-in buffet, a first-floor suite with courtyard access, a great room with slide-away glass doors that create a seamless transition to the rear and side yards, and a remodeled magazine-caliber kitchen with oversized island, nook, a walk-in pantry, secondary kitchen, marble countertops, porcelain slab backsplash, a built-in refrigerator and a six-burner cooktop. Every bedroom is ensuite and features a walk-in closet, including the fabulous primary suite, where a view-enriched covered deck joins two walk-in closets with custom built-ins, separate vanities, a soaking tub, and a custom-style dual-access walk-in shower with multiple rain heads. With miles of beaches just down the road and a world of recreation within Talega, this one-of-a-kind residence is destined to bring a new level of enjoyment for years to come. Home can be rented furnished. Pool fence available for installation.
