Life on the sand is an awesome experience in this casually chic oceanfront home within the exclusive/private guard-gated Beach Road. Just moments from it all in Capistrano Beach, this light and breezy residence is one of the nicest cottages along the coast, with its main level opening to an enormous split-level deck that features high-end Trex decking and steps onto the sand. Priceless ocean views span Trestle’s world-famous surf beach to the south, Santa Catalina Island across the sea, and Dana Point’s harbor and Headlands in the north, with crashing waves, kaleidoscopic sunsets and breaking waves virtually at your fingertips. Classic white-on-white interiors with open-beam ceilings are home to a sitting room with fireplace, a fashionable kitchen and three bedrooms and two on-trend baths, including a main-floor bedroom with a trio of closets. A dramatic multi-tier staircase arrives at a gallery landing upstairs and leads to bedrooms that offer ocean views. New windows, new French doors, new exterior siding and new insulation enhance energy efficiency throughout the residence, which measures approximately 1,707 square feet. Extra guest parking is featured out front, where a porch swing encourages relaxation, and ownership continues to the median high tide line on the beach. Representing a wonderful opportunity to start family memories by July 4th, this inviting cottage is located near an array of shops and eateries, abundant recreation, Dana Point Harbor and San Clemente pier.
