Don’t miss your opportunity to own a well-maintained modern home in the quiet Melinda Heights enclave of beautiful Rancho Santa Margarita. This home sits on one of the largest lots in the Brisa Ladera subdivision on a cul-de-sac with friendly neighbors. Features a room downstairs which is currently used as a bedroom but can be converted to a den/study/game room. High vaulted ceiling and recessed lighting offers a spacious feel and two sliding back patio doors provide multiple ways to access the backyard. Also features custom-fitted plantation shutters over the living room’s arched windows which allow as much or as little sunlight into the interior as desired; such arched shutters are an extremely rare find in any home in the area. Upstairs you will find a big master suite overlooking the backyard and two additional bedrooms. Oversized backyard features a huge variety of mature tropical fruit trees and landscaping which is too much to list and must be seen to be believed, all taken care of by a set-it-and-forget-it sprinkler system. Backyard has space for a large pool, get-togethers, and much much more - the only limitation is your own imagination! Walking distance to highly-acclaimed Melinda Heights Elementary School and fun-filled Altisima Park. Easy access to the 241 toll road. No Mello Roos. Enjoy access to many luxurious amenities such as swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, sports fields, plus fishing at Lago Santa Margarita lake and relaxing and taking in views of the Saddleback Mountains at the Beach Club Lagoon.
