Live the life you have earned at this beautifully upgraded single-level home in San Clemente’s gate-guarded Talega Gallery collection, which is reserved for those 55 and better. The Sandbridge community is the premier development in the Gallery community, and this was the former model home. Spanning approximately 2,401 square feet, the generously proportioned residence welcomes guests with a gated courtyard that leads to an arched leaded-glass entry door. Natural light illuminates the foyer and gallery-style hall, which provides passage to bedrooms and living areas that are nicely separated for privacy. One bedroom is showcased as a home office, complete with custom built-in cabinetry, shelving, and French doors leading to the courtyard. Another room opens to the courtyard and is ideal as a formal living or dining room–whichever suits your lifestyle best. A bright and open great room encompasses a casual dining area, a living area with built-in entertainment center and fireplace, and a grand kitchen with an abundance of white cabinetry, backyard access, a built-in desk, white-on-white appliances including a double oven, under-cabinet lighting, a pantry, limestone countertops with a subway tile backsplash, and a large island with a circular bar. Three bedrooms and two baths include a primary suite adorned with a shiplap ceiling, walk-in closet, soaking tub, separate shower, two sinks and a sit-down vanity. The oversized laundry room features ample storage and a sink, and the attached two-car garage offers built-in cabinetry.
