An elevated hillside homesite at Rancho San Clemente's gated Mandalay neighborhood gives this generously sized executive residence an outstanding vantage point from which to enjoy panoramic hill, valley and city-light views. Beautiful vistas provide a captivating backdrop for outdoor entertaining on grounds that span nearly 5,388 square feet and display a large turn-in driveway, manicured landscaping with topiary plantings, and a sunny backyard with a split-level patio and an ample lawn. A virtual blank canvas, the home's two-story interior embraces approximately 2,465 square feet over two levels. Highlights are led by a double-height foyer, a bright and open living and dining space, an office that opens to the living room and the front yard via French doors, a two-car garage, and a family room with fireplace, media niche and backyard access. Stylish kitchen upgrades showcase granite countertops, white cabinetry, updated stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, a breakfast bar, island, and a nook with large under-stairs storage closet. Four bedrooms and two-and-one-half baths include a luxurious primary suite that is distinguished by a view deck over the backyard, a dual-access walk-in closet, separate vanities, a jetted tub and spacious shower. Private and serene, Mandalay offers the rewards of a setting near a major shopping center, excellent schools, open space, trails, and the popular Vista Hermosa Sports Park.
