Luxury and elegance are redefined at this abundantly upgraded ocean-view home in San Clemente's gated Reserve East neighborhood at Forster Ranch. Located on a preferred cul-de-sac street, the expansive two-story residence presents beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, and coastal hills and canyons. Curb appeal is embellished with custom hardscaping and professionally maintained tropical landscaping, complete with lofty palm trees. The backyard complements entertaining with an open-air fireplace and a built-in barbecue bar with granite countertop.

The seamless kitchen and family room is great for game night, movie night and sneaking a midnight snack, with the family room featuring a custom built-in entertainment center, surround sound and a fireplace. An island anchors the gourmet-inspired kitchen and is joined by granite countertops with a full backsplash, a nook, walk-in pantry and a built-in refrigerator. Approximately 3,313 square feet, the five-bedroom, three-bath floorplan includes a main-floor bedroom/office, crown molding, travertine flooring with tile inlays, custom window treatments, clerestory windows, tray ceilings in select rooms, a balcony off a secondary bedroom, and a three-car garage.
