The Quintessential HOME! Open floor plan. Every square foot is usable and well-designed. The front double door entry opens to a formal living room with a vaulted ceiling and sliding doors to the backyard. The living room flows into the dining area, which is drenched in light. The kitchen offers a six-burner cooktop, double oven, and walk-in pantry, a breakfast nook with large windows, and access to the backyard. The first floor includes a family room with a cozy fireplace and built-in bookshelves, a 4th bedroom, which is currently used as an office, with a bath with a large shower, and a laundry room with storage cabinets. Upstairs is a grand master suite with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, wood floors, dual closets, including a walk-in cedar closet, and a spacious master bath – with a separate water closet, separate tub and shower, dual sinks, and lots of light. Two additional upstairs bedrooms are generously sized with the front bedroom displaying another vaulted ceiling and a large, mirrored wardrobe. A second full bathroom completes the second floor. The backyard is the fun zone! Enjoy spectacular SUNSET VIEWS as you relax in the waterfall "spool". The backyard is designed with pavers for easy maintenance and water conservation and has raised beds and planters for container gardening. The three-car garage has storage cabinets, a workbench, and epoxy floors. House updates include re-piping and a recently installed HVAC. The HOA offers membership to "The Club" through a gated and manned entry with 2 pools, tennis courts, sports courts, a gym, a recreation room, a playground, and a park. Close by is the Laguna Niguel Regional Park with its lake and hiking trails. This house is walking distance to a movie theater, shopping, dining, groceries, Bev-Mo, Starbucks, and Handel’s Ice Cream. Marian Bergeson Elementary (also walking distance) offers the only Mandarin Immersion school in South Orange County. The I-5 Freeway, Costco, Mission Viejo Mall, and Mission Hospital are all within a few minutes’ drive. Bring the kids and welcome HOME!
