Kick back, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet at this elegantly upgraded Santalana townhome overlooking Talega’s championship golf course in San Clemente. Surrounded on two sides by a scenic greenbelt, the residence’s desirable setting is enhanced by a wraparound backyard with a covered patio, paver decking, and a BBQ with bar seating. Numerous windows bring backyard views and cheerful daylight indoors, where a distinctive two-story floorplan extends approximately 1,952 square feet and offers three bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths, tile flooring throughout the first level, plush carpet upstairs, and custom designer paint throughout. Bright and open, the main floor presents a view-enriched living room with brick fireplace and media niche, a dining area with dry bar, and a gourmet kitchen with island, granite countertops, stylish wood cabinetry, and stainless-steel KitchenAid appliances. A loft awaits at the top of the staircase, and the luxurious master suite features golf course views, a large walk-in closet with two entrances, a soaking tub, shower, tile surrounds and countertops, and separate vanities. Interior doors are paneled and masterfully faux-finished to look like rich stained wood, and an attached two-car garage offers added convenience. Santalana's private recreation center offers residents exclusive use of a resort pool, spa and BBQ pavilion. A supermarket is within walking distance, and golf, hiking, beaches and more are remarkably close.
