The rolling hills of Talega’s gated Catania neighborhood are home to this magnificent turnkey residence just minutes from the beaches of San Clemente. Panoramic hill, canyon and park views provide a dramatic backdrop for indoor/outdoor living in the four-bedroom, four-bath home, which measures approximately 3,497 square feet and exhibits a double-height entry with semi-circular staircase, a fireplace-warmed living room, and a formal dining room with leaded-glass windows and French doors that open to an outdoor room. A first-level den could become a fifth bedroom, and the family room features a stone fireplace with hearth and a built-in entertainment center. Elevating gourmet style to a new level, the home’s fully appointed kitchen is open to the family room and hosts a breakfast room, island with bar seating, a butler’s pantry, granite countertops, handsome wood cabinetry, a six-burner cooktop and a built-in refrigerator. Upstairs, a grand hall overlooks the entry below and leads to a spacious loft, an office nook with built-in shelving and desk, and secondary bedrooms including one with a private bath. Luxury is the hallmark of a plush master suite with oversized view deck, two walk-in closets with built-ins, dual vanities, a jetted tub and walk-in shower. Upscale enrichments are led by travertine flooring, plantation shutters, beamed ceilings, custom paint and elegant lighting. Stone decking complements both the front and rear yards in grounds of nearly 5,790 square feet. Discover a private courtyard entry with fountain, a covered patio, built-in Viking BBQ with griddle, and a custom backyard fireplace with built-in seating. Award-winning schools and Talega’s popular selection of recreational attractions, including a championship golf course, are close at hand.
