Experience the essence of Talega’s carefree coastal lifestyle at this luxuriously upgraded and remodeled San Rafael home in San Clemente. Ensconced on a private homesite at the end of a cul-de-sac, the spacious residence comes equipped with twenty-seven solar panels, has only one direct neighbor and welcomes gorgeous unobstructed golf course views. Ample room allows for a long paver-finished driveway, a gated entry patio, a putting green, and a spectacular backyard with spa, fire pit, built-in seating, olive and citrus trees, and a custom BBQ bar with seating. Reflecting today’s preferred style, the interior is white, light and bright, with a double-height foyer, wood-look plank flooring, office nook, crown molding and fashionable lighting. The parlor features a fireplace and built-in window seat, and a built-in buffet enhances the formal dining room. Custom built-ins also complement the family room, where a fireplace and media center make evenings at home a true delight. Custom white Shaker cabinetry and quartz countertops refine an open kitchen that hosts an island, built-in desk, walk-in pantry, nook, French doors to the backyard, and stainless-steel KitchenAid appliances. Five bedrooms and four-and-one-half baths are featured in approximately 3,531 square feet, including a main-floor ensuite, a second floor ensuite, and a bedroom with balcony. Fabulous fairway, hill and light views are enjoyed in a master suite with deck, built-in dresser, two-sided walk-in closet and sumptuous bath. Across the street from an elementary school, San Rafael is close to Talega’s countless recreational attractions, as well as shopping, restaurants, and San Clemente’s world-renowned beaches.
