San Clemente house description

Surround yourself and those you love in luxury experienced only in five-star resorts, yet with the space, freedom, comfort and privacy of home. This luxurious beach home is perfectly located in San Clemente, known for having the Best Climate on Earth. It is private, spacious and just 2 blocks from family beaches, the famous pier, firepits and swingsets. Five minutes away is Ave. Del Mar, where you will discover fabulous restaurants, antique shops, surf and swimwear shops and stylish boutiques. Our home is the perfect place for families, extended families or groups of friends to escape.

Filled with an eclectic mix of custom-made, vintage and new furniture, the home has something for everyone. All mattresses are custom-made with feather top mattresses along with lush pillows for your sleeping pleasure. All linens are of exceptional quality and included in your stay; beach towels too.

There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in all. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms are located upstairs, with a master suite and a jack-and-jill suite which is great for children. The master bathroom has a Waterworks Empire Soaking Tub and separate shower with rain showerhead. The jack-and-jill bath has a clawfoot soaking tub, 2 separate sink consoles and plenty of space. A 1-bedroom suite is downstairs with full bathroom. Also downstairs is a large, open family room, gourmet kitchen, dining room that seats 12, powder room and laundry closet. In addition, the antique kitchen island seats 6 (or 8 on the ends). All bathroom fixtures and linens are from Restoration Hardware and Anthropologie.

The house also has two decks with ocean view, one with a marble and iron dining table and another one off the master bedroom with extra plush reading chairs. A beautifully landscaped backyard includes a patio, gas grill, table with benches, lounging area and outdoor shower to rinse off the sand upon return from your arduous day at the beach.

Our home features a gourmet kitchen. All appliances are new, with GE Monogram Stainless Steel Refrigerator, inaudible Bosch Dishwasher, beverage refrigerator and microwave. The exception is my grandparent's 1940's vintage Wedgewood gas stove with 4 burners, griddle in the middle, oven and broiler. Dishes, glassware and table linens are from Anthropologie; culinary appliances from Crate and Barrel. Also, there are built-in recycling containers. Energy efficient, large-load capacity, inaudible Bosch washer and dryer are readily available for your convenience.

Boogie Boards, sand toys, chairs, umbrellas and sunscreen are provided for your beach fun. Flat screen TV, DVD/VHS, iPod Bose speaker and wireless internet are all available for your enjoyment. A movie library and games are also provided for both children and adults.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: As a child growing up, my family, along with my grandparents, would rent a small apartment in San Clemente for 2 weeks every summer. We would surf-fish early in the morning with our grandpa, swim, run the beach or up the hills, walk around Del Mar, eat out and have a grand time. In 1988, my parents moved to San Clemente and my husband and I would come to visit, enjoying all the same activities in a down-to-earth atmosphere. Years later, we decided to build a home right next to my father so that we could enjoy San Clemente with our children and their grandparents, just as I did when I was a child.

              Why the Owner Chose San Clemente:
              This is our dream beach home (no more 7 people sharing 1 bathroom), close to the ocean with a comfortable atmosphere. My father built our homes in 2005 and we were able to customize our home to make it a luxurious and fun place for families to gather.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home was built for our family, not with rental in mind, so you will enjoy the luxuries created for my family, not a place to 'herd people through'. We designed the home to enjoy with family and friends, creating open spaces to congregate and private room retreats when a little privacy is desired. Each room was specially appointed with a purpose-some for children and their friends, others for adults. Gourmet meals can be served on lovely dinnerware, platters etc. or paper plates can rule the day. Whatever is your family's delight. Then step out the door and walk 2 blocks to the beach, pier, or shops and restaurants on Del Mar. Everything is within reach.
