This meticulously cared for home in the exclusive 24-hr guard-gated retirement community of Palmia will not disappoint. Nestled in the quiet neighborhood of Courts 2, this 2-bed/2-bath home is a jewel with loads of upgrades and amenities. Enjoy direct access to the house through one of two attached, single car garages. A drought-tolerant custom landscape lines the walk of the gated entry. Matching appliances grace the sparkling kitchen, with a pass-through to the dining area. The classy redesigned stacked stone fireplace allows for an oversized flat-screen TV (included). Step onto the elegantly updated flagstone patio and enjoy peaceful days or warm evenings with friends and neighbors. Plantation shutters have been added to the windows, and a beautifully intricate custom mirror adorns the master bathroom. You’ll love the custom-designed closet systems in both bedrooms, nicely finished with a bi-fold door to the master closet allowing for easy access, and mirrored doors on the guest closet. Ceiling fans have been installed in both bedrooms, and most of the home converted to LED lighting. The Palmia community is packed with amenities and activities, including tennis, golf, bocce ball, fitness center, pools, billiards, cards, clubs, social events and more! The HOA fees also include membership to nearby Mission Viejo Lake, which has their own list of activities and events. Find your new home and resort-style living in this lovely 55+ community of Palmia!
