Discover the pinnacle of San Clemente living at this sophisticated Talega Gallery residence, where refined amenities, vast spaces, and an enduring sense of luxurious privacy are unrivaled. Approximately 3,650 square feet, the two-story arrangement lives like a one-level design, with the master suite and a secondary bedroom downstairs and a loft and ensuite bedroom reserved for the upper level. Subdued Spanish-inspired exterior architecture continues indoors, where a formal entry with inlaid tile floor leads to an office with built-ins, and an impressive living and dining area with double-height ceiling, hand-crafted furniture-quality fireplace surround, French doors to the side yard, and a wood and wrought-iron staircase with gated wine cellar below. The open design flows into a casual wing complete with a fireplace-warmed family room with built-in entertainment center and surround sound. Exceptionally spacious, the gourmet kitchen is distinguished by an island with seating, extensive wood cabinetry, a pantry, built-in desk, nook with backyard access, and stainless-steel KitchenAid appliances including a built-in refrigerator. Rivaling boutique hotels, the elegant master suite opens to the back patio and displays a tray ceiling, enormous walk-in closet, soaking tub, oversized shower and dual vanities. A second built-in entertainment center makes the loft a great spot for movie night, and three baths, wiring for sound, crown molding, travertine floor tile, designer carpet, and custom wall and window treatments lend an air of opulence throughout. Mature landscaping, citrus trees and a location with no neighbor to the rear create a private outdoor setting on a homesite of nearly 6,534 square feet that is enhanced by stone patios a fountain, and built-in BBQ island. Talega Gallery is convenient to the master-planned community’s popular variety of recreational attractions, including an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Fred Couples. Seaside dining, shopping and relaxation await near downtown San Clemente’s vibrant pier.
