This classic Spanish Colonial-style home with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths is the essence of coastal chic. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Talega’s Alta tract and hugged by the surrounding hills, this spectacular home offers 5,436 square feet of exquisitely detailed living space and incredible backyard amenities for enjoying Orange County’s legendary indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Ceilings soar over wide-plank, whitewashed oak floors and natural light streams through enormous windows throughout. Premium millwork, arched entryways, plantation shutters and an elegant curving staircase with wrought-iron banisters lend sophistication to the modern coastal aesthetic, while beamed ceilings and a fireplace generate rustic warmth in the great room. A second gas fireplace graces the formal living room. The open kitchen is a chef’s delight with top-of-the-line appliances, floating island, walk-in food pantry and butler’s pantry. Enjoy casual meals in the sunny breakfast nook and formal ones in a grand dining room with a view of the outdoors. Offer luxury accommodations to guests in a downstairs bedroom suite that opens to the pool. Upstairs, find solace in a lavishly appointed primary suite with sitting area, all designed in soothing ocean hues. The sumptuous bath features a raised, central soaking tub flanked by custom vanities. Step into the giant natural stone shower with multiple heads and spa seating. Dual walk-in closets, one with center island, offer deluxe custom storage solutions. Enjoy peek-a-boo ocean views from your private balcony! Three more bedrooms upstairs have their own beautifully upgraded baths, and an upstairs bonus room has been converted to a 6th bedroom that remains a flexible space. The huge laundry room with built-in storage and dual washers/dryers means you’ll never run out of clean towels! Outside, your personal oasis awaits. A sparkling saltwater pool/spa with waterfall feature is surrounded by flowering shrubs, stone decking and low-maintenance synthetic grass. Enjoy it all from the shade of the covered patio, poolside or snuggled by the built-in fire pit with stacked-stone seating. The wraparound patio also features a built-in bbq and putting green. A beautiful meditation courtyard with fountain is yet another place to enjoy the outdoors. More upgrades include a paid-in-full solar system, surround sound and repipe completed in 2019. You’ll love Talega’s pools, spas, sports fields, parks, hiking trails and more!
