Custom 3000 square foot luxury private home located in the heart of San Clemente - 'The Spanish Village By-The-Sea.' In San Clemente's downtown Del Mar/pier-bowl area, just steps from the sand, dining & shopping. Ideal for groups and family vacations!
Walking distance to everything! Walk to the beach in 3 minutes, stroll along the pier in 5. Many great surf breaks are right here - you can be paddling into your first wave 5 minutes from walking out the door! This wonderful home is situated less than two blocks from all the boutique shops, wine bars and excellent restaurants on Avenida Del Mar - San Clemente's charming 'downtown' area.
Central location for exploring southern California by car. Located right in the middle of Los Angeles and San Diego (approx. 45 minutes either way). Disneyland, Legoland, Sea World, and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are all within a short drive. It's also just a short walk from the house to the Metrolink train station at the pier (4 min).
Beautiful old-growth cherry hardwood floors are found throughout the entire house. The inviting open floor plan is relaxing and ideal for groups vacationing together - open up the double doors at the front patio and backyard for a truly wonderful flow-through experience from end to end. The large professional kitchen with top of the line appliances will accommodate any accomplished chef and may even inspire a new career path! There's peak ocean views from one of three upstairs balconies. The house has one and one-half baths downstairs and two full baths upstairs with a fun oversized double shower in the master. The master and two other bedrooms are located upstairs. A 4th bedroom/office is located just off the kitchen downstairs - it can be locked off from the rest of the house while having its own full bath, backyard and kitchen access (some consider it to be called a mother-in-law suite).
This is the ideal family vacation home! Two INDOOR swings with full range of movement located in a large upstairs playroom with high vaulted ceilings. Dozens of board games, dress-up clothes, play kitchen, toys etc. Dedicated kid's art room. Upright piano. High-speed wireless internet. Large HD wide-screen TV with cable service and Blu-Ray DVD player with dozens of movies on site.
Outside we have a fun 60-foot zip-line and two-story playhouse for the little ones. Elevated patio/lounge area with pergola and oversized hammock. Exterior hot water shower for rinsing off after the beach. Soft learner surfboards and plenty of boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, umbrellas and more are all included.
Beds: Sleeps 7 to 12 comfortably in beds – 1 King, 1 Queen, 3 Twins, and 1 Toddler Bed. We also have a comfortable down-filled couch in the office/4th bedroom that is twin size. Two additional Queen-sized raised AeroBed air mattresses will be supplied (they are very comfortable!). All of the bedrooms are large and can easily accommodate one of the Queen AeroBeds. There's plenty of couch space throughout the house too.
Backyard: The backyard is 900 square feet and consists of irregular slate stone, large natural gas grill, separate charcoal grill, a 2-story playhouse in one corner, the pictured deck with arbor on the other side, and outdoor shower and zip-line just around the corner (zip-line goes down one side of the house and ends at the arbor). The lighting is great at night with dimmable controls. There's also a wood burning fire pit that can be moved to wherever you need it to go and a couple of teak wood tables for eating or just to play cards outside. If the nights get a little chilly there is a movable restaurant-style propane fueled outdoor patio heater as well.
Beach trail: San Clemente completed building a great pedestrian beach trail just a few years ago. It runs all along the coast for about 2.2 miles and can be accessed just down the steps from the house. At the north end of the trail is North Beach - here you can rent bikes for use around town and on the trail. At the south end of the trail is Calafia State Beach with world famous surf break Trestles a little further beyond.
