Sweeping golf course views enhance this elegant townhome at Talega’s Carmel collection in San Clemente, where a private gated courtyard, two second-floor decks and a spacious patio redefine delightful indoor/outdoor living. Classic Spanish tile adorns these inviting outdoor spaces and complements the home’s Mediterranean-inspired architecture. A dramatic double-height ceiling enriches the open and bright floorplan, which measures approximately 2,385 square feet and features three bathrooms, dual suites upstairs, and a main-level office or third bedroom with French doors opening to the courtyard. Fairway vistas are enjoyed in a great room with fireplace and built-in entertainment center. The adjacent kitchen pampers chefs with a nook, breakfast bar, granite countertops, white cabinetry, a walk-in pantry with decorative glass door, and stainless-steel KitchenAid appliances including a built-in refrigerator. Enviable upgrades are led by tile floors downstairs, designer carpet on the upper level, whole-house audio, plantation shutters, and crown and chair molding. Overlooking the formal dining room, the second-story hall leads to a secondary suite with walk-in closet and a spacious covered deck with peaceful views, and the main master suite, which is graced with a deck featuring panoramic golf course and hill views, a walk-in closet with built-ins, a built-in granite-topped vanity, and a luxurious bath with soaking tub and separate shower. Convenience is heightened with a second-floor laundry room and an attached two-car garage. Entertain stylishly on the back patio, where passing golfers often wave a friendly hello and admire raised planter beds and a heated dining space. Carmel’s resort-inspired pool and spa are only a couple homes away, and beaches, schools and countless recreational attractions are wonderfully convenient.
