Rancho Carrillo. This could be one of Orange County’s best kept secrets. While this community has been around since the early sixties, it’s not often heard of and seldom do homes become available here. There is a community riding arena, round pen, recreation center, swimming pool and volunteer fire department. Can you imagine a rural getaway that’s within minutes of OC beaches, fine dining and shopping? Enter off the Ortega Hwy in San Juan Capistrano to your secluded 2.5-acre retreat which backs up to the San Mateo Wilderness in the Cleveland National Forest. Just 30 minutes from the harbor are miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding. Nestled amidst a canopy of oaks, this gorgeous 4br/3ba home has been recently remodeled with numerous upgrades throughout. Jaw dropping windows reach for soaring 25-foot ceilings in the living room; and they are filled with views your private oasis. The heart of the home boasts a large center island, stainless-steel Thermadore appliances and built-in refrigerator all set amidst white cabinets and gorgeous granite counters. Complementary double ovens, veggie sink, built-in coffee/espresso machine and wine fridge make it perfect for entertaining! This gorgeous kitchen opens up to the living room and formal dining area both of which have glass doors to the back patios and the pool. The resort style back yard has lush landscaping, fountains and award-winning koi ponds. The saltwater pool, waterfall and spa complete the picture. Retreat to the large master suite with fireplace and recently remodeled master bath for restoration and renewal. Greet the horses at sunrise with your freshly brewed cup of coffee. You’ll find six stalls, room for a round pen, hay/tack storage, a wash rack and large turnouts with shaded oak trees. Ride out your gate through miles of US Forest Service trails. Stay home for dinner or head to the bay for harborside dining. It’s a beautiful life, enjoy it.
