Tucked away in the peaceful beachside 55+ community of Colony Cove, this single-level home with unique and hard-to-find ocean views is a special offering. Ideally located within the community just above the clubhouse (with private pool, library & kitchenette) and near the coastal bluffs, the home is perfectly situated to capture amazing views off the southwest rear-facing side. Sited on a subtle ridge and ideally positioned to take advantage of stunning views, sunsets, Catalina Island, Dana Headlands and boats traveling the harbor mouth, there’s always something spectacular to see from the rear patio. Upon arrival, the garage is directly adjacent the home (some have distant garages) with a beautiful atrium for gardening adjoining the garage and main structure. Just one small step when entering (ADA conducive), ascending wood-beamed ceilings teamed with large-format gable windows create a light and bright, mid-century vibe. A large fireplace centers the room with direct access to the massive ocean-view patio - a great place to unwind and relax under the shaded patio cover that expands most of the yard. Recently updated inside, newer improvements including: laminate wood-like & carpet flooring, quartz counter tops, a light paint/current palette, stainless appliances, sink basin & fixtures all enhance the interior appeal. A dedicated area in the kitchen for side-by-side laundry makes makes it super convenient. Down the hallway, both bedrooms face the ocean and the guest bedroom allows direct access to the rear patio. A guest bathroom with shower and floor-to-ceiling glass to the open air garden atrium creates a unique sense of space and abundant natural light filtering in. In the spacious ocean-view primary, room for large format furniture, excessive mirrored closet space, ceiling fan, linen storage, and direct access to a turnkey primary bathroom creates a very comfortable and inviting suite. Meandering walking paths throughout the relaxed senior community offer several areas to sit back and soak up the amazing ocean views abound. Adjacent to the Sea Summit community and the coastal walking trails quickly accessed on foot nearby, walkable to fine dining, shopping and the MetroLux theatre with iMax at the San Clemente Outlet Mall all close to amazing beaches along the San Clemente beach trail. For those seeking a laidback, beachy lifestyle in a quiet community on the edge of the Pacific, this is your ticket to ride!
