Shaded by mature trees and embraced by a scenic and exceptionally private homesite of nearly one-half acre, this sprawling ranch-style home is beautifully upgraded and move-in ready. Located less than four miles from Dana Point Harbor in one of San Juan Capistrano’s most desirable equestrian-zoned neighborhoods, the four-bedroom, three-bath single-level design is introduced by a covered entry porch and dual front doors. An open-concept floorplan of approximately 2,344 square feet reveals a step-down living room with bay window, a formal dining room that opens to the backyard, and a spacious great room with dramatic open-beam vaulted ceiling, two sliders to the rear patio, and a white stone fireplace with raised hearth and custom wood mantle. Located between the dining and great rooms to maximize convenience, a chef-inspired white-on-white kitchen displays custom white cabinetry, quartz countertops, a full subway tile backsplash, breakfast area, pot-filler, pantry, and stainless steel appliances including a warming drawer. An office makes it easy to work from home, and the laundry room hosts a sink and generous cabinetry. For the ultimate escape, the home’s main suite is enriched with crown molding, rear-yard access, dual sinks, and a walk-in shower with custom tile surround. Upgrades abound, including on-trend bath fixtures and finishes, wood-look wide-plank flooring, recessed art lighting, and custom paint and wall treatments. Resort living reaches new heights in a backyard with black-bottom saltwater pool and spa, a built-in BBQ with bar seating, a fireplace, raised vegetable gardens, and paver-finished patios. The historic Mission San Juan Capistrano is about 1.5 miles away, and top schools, abundant recreation, sunny beaches, and popular shopping and dining destinations are nearby.
