With a large and open floor plan, a private backyard, and Ocean Views from the backyard and several rooms in the house, this home is a hidden gem in Sante Fe Hills. Spend your evenings taking in the sun as it sets into the Pacific Ocean with views all the way to San Clemente island. Inside, the home has an ideal floor plan with a large great room perfect for entertaining downstairs, and 4 bedrooms and a very large loft upstairs. There is a 5th optional bedroom with armoire downstairs and an upstairs laundry. Current owners regularly upgraded the home over 11 years of ownership including very recent exterior paint and stucco, plantation shutters throughout, overhead lighting, light fixtures, and ceiling fans in multiple rooms, ring doorbell system with two additional cameras, a hard-wired ADT monitored alarm with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, a top rated Kinetico whole home water system including softener and reverse osmosis drinking water, added storage in the garage, a retractable awning for the back patio, and new sprinklers and landscaping outside. Income producing Solar City/Tesla solar system is owned (not leased) with output that is more than double the amount used - planned to be enough to power an electric car for a year. Sante Fe Hills has easy access to the 78, shopping including the new North City shops and restaurants, and great schools including award winning Paloma elementary which is within walking distance. Foothills park is also a 2 minute walk down the street. A great home and great neighborhood make this home hard to leave!
