Beautifully upgraded and repiped home in one of Aliso Viejo’s most sought-after gated communities. As you enter from the quiet street, past the mature palms that grace the front of the home, you will notice the extra-long driveway, paved walkway, and bright shutter accents. Downstairs, all rooms open to each other, united by gorgeous hardwood floors, crown molding, plantation shutters, and custom baseboards. The well-appointed and recently remodeled kitchen includes a walk-in pantry, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, shaker style cabinets, recessed lighting and subway-tile backsplash. Light pours into the house through Palladian, sidelight, stained glass, and picture windows, and an additional sunroom maximizes the brightness within. Upstairs, the master bedroom, adorned with crown molding, ceiling fan, and plantation shutters has an en suite bathroom with honeycomb tile floor, gracefully-tiled frameless separate shower, and walk-in closet with built-in shelving. The other three bedrooms and second bathroom upstairs include touches like plantation shutters, ceiling fans, custom lighting, and chair rail trim. A large separate laundry room upstairs has a utility sink and plenty of storage. The sizeable yard, framed by an ivy-covered fence, is thoughtfully hardscaped with a variety of decorative planters. The Village Cottages community, a gated enclave with a relaxing pool area, is walking distance to Oak Park, Canyon Vista Elementary, and Soka University.
