One of the finest ocean view homes ever offered in San Clemente, this spectacular semi-custom home just underwent a multi-year reconstruction making it into the epitome of coastal luxury living. Sited within the coveted Alta area of Talega, this premier elevated corner location is exceptionally private, yet open, light and features horizon views of the Pacific and sunsets. One of only seven homes on this serene cul-de-sac, the house has been transformed with all the design elements and appointments to rival that of a new custom residence at twice this price. Walls were removed to expand the views and sightlines, lending to the atmosphere of this idyllic indoor/outdoor plan. A veritable paradise, a generous covered loggia (warmed by a fireplace) and mature gardens surround the private areas of the house and open to more terraces and an ocean view pool. Substantial and one-of-kind additions and improvements include: a private spa/gym/wellness retreat was created with an accompanying spa bath with steam shower; an expanded master suite with a sumptuous and elegant bath, dressing, and view terrace; a completely reconfigured and rebuilt kitchen with adjacent serving bar and a secondary preparatory kitchen fitted with an island as well as a custom designed and refrigerated produce and wine room; a meditation room insulated for silence (and easily converted to a golf simulator room); and a floating all-steel and stone clad staircase in the dramatic two-story entry distinguish this residence from all others. Details and appointments include new electrical and Lutron lighting systems throughout, a Generac back-up generator, custom inlaid and mosaic marble tiles, custom hand-crafted closets and built-ins throughout (including murphy beds), custom lighting+hardware+fixtures throughout, handcrafted solid hardwood floors, a Kalamazoo barbeque, and a spectacular custom metal entry door with custom designed glass insert. Truly, there are simply too many upgrades to cover in this description. Suffice to say that every inch of this home was reconsidered and redesigned to make it the ultimate contemporary version of what it could be. All of this was thoughtfully recreated in this highly desirable ocean-close location minutes from the coast’s finest amenities. For those in search of a substantial ocean view home in this award-winning community, but for whom the standard builder grade is not enough, you need look no further than here. You have found your new home.
