Coastal breezes and bright interiors amplify this recently upgraded home’s ocean-close setting in Rancho San Clemente’s Villagio collection. The advantages of a detached townhome-style residence are complemented by a private, spacious yard with a sunny patio, shaded deck, raised planters and water- and maintenance-saving lifelike synthetic turf. Backing to a beautifully landscaped hill, the two-level design lives like a one-story floorplan by revealing a main-floor primary suite that presents a custom bath and opens to the rear deck. A welcoming side entrance is lined with colorful plantings and introduces a phenomenal three-bedroom, three-bath residence that measures approximately 1,500 square feet and is appointed with a wide-open living room with vaulted ceiling, a fireplace and patio access. The living room flows directly into a dining room and on to a new kitchen with white Shaker cabinetry, quartz countertops, a white tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. Currently featuring dual French doors, the first-floor office includes a closet and can easily be used as a comfortable third bedroom. Coastal-themed stained-glass windows crown a spiral staircase that leads to an upstairs ensuite bedroom with Juliet balcony. Ceiling fans, plantation shutters, wood-inspired plank tile flooring and an attached two-car garage with parking for two more on the driveway are also on display. Rancho San Clemente Park is just a couple blocks from home, and trails, open space, schools, and the world-famous beaches of San Clemente are conveniently located.
