Gracing the beautiful bluff-front Santa Clara Avenue above Dana Point’s iconic harbor and serene headlands, this end-unit condo is sure to impress. Sharing the street with multi-million dollar homes just across the way, this location right in the heart of the Lantern District is very central to all the great amenities and outdoor living Dana Point has to offer! A premium end unit allowing ample privacy, the street-to-street layout allows easy access to the rear 2-car garage and two convenient guest parking spots. Recently upgraded inside with a modified floor plan opening the kitchen to the living room, the living spaces flow seamlessly with brand new laminate flooring. Downstairs, a large living room with gas fireplace accesses a private and covered patio to Santa Clara Ave through new vinyl slider doors. The great room melds well with a very updated chef’s kitchen featuring Walnut-stained shaker cabinetry & stainless hardware, brand new Samsung appliances (double oven), simple white quartz counters and a great breakfast bar with ample bar seating. Just off the kitchen is a bonus flexible space for alternative dining, lounging TV den, or optional 3rd guest sleeping nook with pull-out couch (to accommodate more guests). In the hallway, a remodeled powder bathroom services the downstairs, and a dedicated laundry room is equipped with gas/electric hook-ups and shaker cabinetry. Up the opened and improved stairwell (newly-added modern railings) leads you to two very generous bedrooms. In the master suite, recent improvements include a fully remodeled master bathroom and enclosure of small office with privacy barn door. The bathroom offers all-new dual sinks, fixtures, walk-in shower, shaker cabinetry, and quartz counter tops. Dual closets (one a large walk-in & one mirrored), a gas fireplace, ceiling fan, wood laminate and access to a private deck with peek ocean view through homes, all attribute to the substantial master suite. The new modern railings frame access to a huge secondary bedroom (room for master bedroom set) with direct access to a private outdoor deck. In the hallway, the guest bathroom has recently been fully remodeled with new soaking tub to match the other updated bathrooms. Other recent improvements include all new dual-pane vinyl windows and slider doors, new window treatments, and new interior paint. Walkable to fine dining, the harbor, trails at the Headlands, shopping, parks, and great surfing, don’t miss this lifestyle upgrade!
