Adorable 1954 Beach Cottage just a 10 minute walk to the San Clemente Pier and the amazing restaraunt and shopping area of Del Mar Street!!! This home will capture your heart beginning at the curb with the stone steps, beautiful landscaping and a spectacular custom gate flanked by stacked stone walls. Enter through the gate into the lush courtyard with mature plantings, high top seating, a soft bubbling water feature, and stone pavers leading to the front entry where you'll be greeted by the charming custom Dutch Door! When you enter the home there are so many features, old and new that will most definitely get your attention. Let's begin with these exposed beam ceilings-spectacular! There is also a gas fireplace that heats up the home nicely on chilly coastal evenings. Most of the windows in the home have been updated to dual pane and in the living room there are floor to ceiling windows to take in your view of your courtyard. The floors in the living, dining, and bedroom are hardwood and the bathroom and kitchen are slate. Around the corner is the cozy kitchen area with original and operational vintage oven and stove top and the crank out window behind the sink area is a sweet throwback to the 50s! Separating the the living room from the 2 bedrooms is a custom designed pocket door and there is another for the remodeled hall bathroom. The master bedroom is a sight to behold! Again, there are exposed beam ceilings and wood floors along with a closet and an antique armoire that will stay with the home. You can only imagine how well you'll sleep with the french doors open, inviting the fresh air in and enjoying the view of your own "secret garden". The second bedroom is a great size with a closet as well. Just out the back dining room door is the 1.5 car garage which has a washer/ dryer and 3/4 bath as well. The home sits on an almost 3800 sq ft lot and has a wrap around yard with good size side yards as well. Come and take in the all of the unique features. You're in very close proximity to the San Clemente outlets, freeway, shopping and restaraunts galore. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a home this close to the ocean under $2M and surrounded by multi million dollar homes. There may be an option to add a 2nd story and have a full ocean view as well! Many of the furniture items are negotiable as well. Come and see all of the fun features this home has to offer!
