Live without compromise at this elegantly sophisticated view home in Talega of San Clemente’s gated Lucia enclave. An elevated location with no home directly behind it affords panoramic views of the ocean, canyons, hills and evening lights. Formal land and hardscaping, complete with fountains, towering Italian cypress trees and colorful gardens, complement the residence’s Tuscan-influenced architecture. Open the arched entry door to a grand foyer with breathtaking staircase and a cross-loin ceiling that provides passage to an office and formal living and dining rooms. French doors and multiple Juliet balconies open nearly every living space to the outdoors, including five ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets. Noted amenities are led by five-and-one-half baths, a main-floor suite with patio access, a library, bonus room with built-in entertainment center, and a great room with fireplace and adjoining media room. The highly upgraded move-in-ready residence of approximately 6,246 square feet elevates style to new heights in a phenomenal kitchen with oversized island, circular breakfast nook, handsome wood cabinets, a butler’s pantry with secondary ovens and full-sized refrigerator, two walk-in pantries, granite countertops, a restaurant-style range, wine cooler, dual dishwashers and a built-in refrigerator. Rich wood flooring, distinctive archways, plantation shutters, custom paint and an array of lighting fixtures are on display throughout. A circular sitting room with fireplace provides a chic introduction to the primary suite, where sweeping views, a massive walk-in closet with island, and a lavish bath are in a league of their own. Offering space for a future pool and spa, grounds extend about 12,788 square feet and host a spacious rear lawn, stone patios, and a built-in BBQ island with bar seating. Limited to just 33 residences, the exclusive Lucia collection features two cul-de-sac streets and is centered around a private park where residents relax and socialize. Talega’s 18-hole championship golf course, miles of trails, first-class swim club, beautiful parks, bustling shopping centers and top-rated schools are nearby, and San Clemente’s beaches and pier are only minutes away.
