Considered by many to be one of the finest homes within all of San Clemente’s Talega community, this lavishly detailed custom-caliber residence has achieved the pinnacle of luxury living. Located at the top of the exclusive Mirador enclave on a single-loaded cul-de-sac street, the home evokes the appeal of grand estates that enrich the Italian countryside. Every aspect of the residence is lavishly detailed, including a two-story rotunda foyer with a circular staircase that displays patterned wool carpet; a formal living room with towering ceiling, brick accent wall, a fireplace and decorative doors imported from India; and an elegant formal dining room with a tray ceiling and French doors that open to a romantic patio. Hardwood and travertine flooring, custom paint, upgraded lighting, Walker-Zanger tile, built-in speakers, plantation shutters, custom millwork, and custom built-in cabinetry complement varying areas of the two-level design, which hosts five ensuite bedrooms and five-and-one-half baths in approximately 4,706 square feet. A handsome fireplace and a built-in entertainment center are featured in a family room that flows directly to a stunning kitchen with custom clerestory windows, an island, granite countertops, a pantry, a large nook with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, a reverse-osmosis water system, and premium appliances from Bosch and Wolf. A guest suite is located on the first floor, and the second level presents a library with custom built-ins, a loft with a built-in desk and a built-in entertainment center, and spacious secondary bedrooms including one with a Juliet balcony. The primary suite elevates style to new heights with Venetian plaster walls, a fireplace, a west-facing balcony with hill and city-light views, a large walk-in closet with custom built-ins, a multi-head shower, jetted tub, a built-in dresser and limestone surrounds. Every finish and fixture is top-of-the-line, with an array of custom appointments lending appreciated distinction. Powered by a 51-panel solar system, the home features a split three-car garage with the one-car space plumbed for a second laundry area. Exquisite craftsmanship continues across a homesite of nearly 9,632 square feet that boasts a pool, spa, a built-in BBQ bar, an open-air fireplace, and a loggia with 100-year-old tile flooring imported from a farmhouse in Lucca, Italy. A custom stone wall and decorative doors imported from Guatemala enrich the residence’s private courtyard.
