First time on the market since the early 1960s, this 3,300 SF single level home anchors a massive 9,000 SF corner lot with significant ocean views off the front and rear of the property. Upon arrival, mature trees obscure a charming ranch style home beyond. A brick patio hunkered-in by lush landscaping creates an enchanting first impression, very private with major ocean-view potential in the southern direction. Inside through French doors, a rustic and substantial 2-way river-rock-cladded fireplace centers the space, warming both dining and family rooms. The family room features expansive views to the northwest of the harbor mouth at Dana Headlands, stunning sunsets, an emerald horizon and rolling hills in the distance. Walls of glass with gable windows paired with gorgeous vaulted knotty-pine ceilings creates a truly inspiring space. Very homey, inviting, warm, and light-filled with spectacular views. The formal living room offers a similar vibe with rustic-wood ceilings braced by substantial collar ties and features a wood-burning fireplace, large windows and wide-plank vinyl flooring. Such a great communal yet versatile space (potential suite or opened to living spaces). An updated kitchen with shaker cabinets, stainless appliances and granite counters shares space with formal dining. Up a few steps is an ocean-view study or den, full bathroom and two guest rooms. The primary suite offers major space (previously two bedrooms converted to one larger) with fireplace, dual closets, full ensuite bathroom and slider access to the relaxing rear lounging deck. Outside, ample decking with unique privacy offers room for lounging, dining, and major entertaining taking full advantage of the ocean view in the distance. Stairs lead to an elevated second level deck enhancing vistas in all directions. Other values include underground power lines, cul-de-sac frontage and quiet location on the street, oversized garage and storage space, and sheer size of home and lot. Centrally located in the hills just above the historic downtown, walkable to shopping and fine dining on Avenida del Mar, the iconic San Clemente Pier and 2.5 mile beach trail. Just a bike ride to world-class surfing, and close to the Dana Point Harbor (with a perfect view of it). An amazing home that has been filled with love and laughter over the years, tremendous potential, ample outdoor space and incredible views in both directions, don't miss this classic San Clemente ranch-style beach house.
