Nestled in “The Islands”, an intimate community consisting of 117 California-style homes in Aliso Viejo, is this warm and inviting home. When you walk in the door you will see why. From the paint color choices to the décor, this home will impress you. Infused with an abundance of natural light, the open floorplan has an impressive functionality including 3 bedrooms upstairs, a large bonus room, 2-car direct access garage, and an obvious pride of ownership. The kitchen has granite countertops and a newer 4-burner plus grill stove/oven and newer microwave oven. The see-through fireplace, with colored fire glass, located in the center of the downstairs is definitely an eye-catcher. The bedrooms have plantation shutters, mirrored closet doors and closet organizers. With no homes behind and overlooking a wilderness area, the backyard is framed by palm trees and encompasses a new attractive artificial grass lawn and a patio large enough to relax in the sun or spend time with family and friends. This home is located close to the Aliso Town Center where you can enjoy numerous dining, entertainment and shopping options. Nearby Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park provides miles of interconnecting trails that encourage hiking and mountain biking.
