Prepare to be truly impressed at this newly remodeled custom estate in San Juan Capistrano’s guard-gated Hunt Club community, where lux appointments are complemented by stunning architecture and serene 270° hill and mountain views. Nestled on an elevated corner homesite of nearly 18,000 square feet, the opulent residence reveals towering ceilings, large living spaces and vast window expanses that bathe the interior in soft natural light. New leaded-glass entry doors open to a formal foyer with an impressive new circular staircase, a formal living room with a custom fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows, an office with built-ins, and a formal dining room with double-tray ceiling and a French door leading outside. The open kitchen and family area provides an outstanding setting for casual gatherings. Enjoy a pub-style walk-in wet bar, a fireplace and newly opened walls, and a chef’s kitchen with an octagonal breakfast nook, quartzite countertops, a new 6-burner Wolf range, two additional Wolf ovens, a Wolf microwave and a new built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator. Comfortably proportioned at approximately 5,811 square feet, the residence presents an elevator, five bedrooms and four- and one-half baths, including a main-floor suite with a connected bonus room for multi-generational and utility uses. New upgrades include French oak flooring in the lower suite and throughout the upper level, new crystal chandeliers, new sensor-controlled LED lighting, new Pex piping throughout, two new 4 ton heating & air conditioning units with HEPA filtration installed in the attic, and secondary baths with new quartz countertops, faucets, lighting, tile floors and sensor toilet/bidets. Lavish living is the hallmark of the primary suite, which now displays a fireplace-warmed sitting room with silk carpeting, and a new shower, a freestanding tub, and quartz counters. New improvements complement the exterior as well, including new lime-wash paint, sealed smooth stucco siding, upgraded windows with redwood panels, a newer roof, refreshed landscaping, new front and back landscape mood lighting, new doors at the three-car garage, a custom fountain and an updated built-in BBQ bar. Served by the highly respected Capistrano Unified School District, Hunt Club residents enjoy a private equestrian community with no Mello-Roos fees and a location that is only minutes from the beach, shops, restaurants and parks.
