Spectacular ocean, valley, hill and neighborhood-light views are enjoyed from almost every room in this impressively upgraded home at San Rafael in San Clemente’s coastal community of Talega. From the beautiful backyard to the luxe master suite, shimmering Pacific vistas imbue the residence with an undeniable Southern California vibe that is complemented by a light and sophisticated interior design theme. Brand-new waterproof wood laminate flooring, fresh paint, new carpet upstairs, high ceilings and numerous French doors fill the home with an airy and inviting ambiance. Approximately 3,445 square feet, the five-bedroom, four-bath floorplan hosts a main-level bedroom or office, a circular foyer with leaded-glass entry door, formal living and dining rooms, a study with built-in desk, and a family room with stone fireplace, entertainment niche and in-ceiling surround-sound speakers. Open to the family room and a butler’s pantry with wine refrigerator, the designer kitchen enhances mealtime with granite countertops, a full tile backsplash, island, white cabinetry with glass uppers, a dining nook, walk-in pantry and stainless steel appliances including a built-in KitchenAid refrigerator, and a DCS Fisher & Paykel two-drawer dishwasher, microwave, six-burner cooktop and oven. Secondary bedrooms on the upper level are ensuite, and the master suite boasts a sunny ocean-view deck, a covered balcony with roll-up weather shades, two walk-in closets, and a chic bath with dual vanities, a soaking tub and separate shower. A Nest thermostat ensures comfort, and the split three-car garage features epoxy flooring and custom built-in storage. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, the residence’s prime elevated homesite extends nearly 7,167 square feet and offers a paver-finished turn-in driveway, gated entry courtyard with fountain, and a backyard with new pavers, colorful gardens, a spa gazebo, fruit trees, and a covered patio with outdoor speakers and a built-in BBQ island with refrigerator.
