Welcome to 17 Via Carisma in the wonderful Village Cottages community of Talavera in Aliso Viejo. Talavera is a short distance to award-winning Canyon Vista Elementary and Don Juan Avila Middle Schools, and offers a controlled access gate and community swimming pool. This home has two master bedrooms upstairs (the true master has two huge closets) and another room downstairs that can be a den, office, or bedroom. The flooring is neutral Italian tile, with wood in the downstairs bedroom and on the stairs, and designer carpet upstairs. Modern features include stainless steel appliances (with a newer fridge), reverse osmosis water filter, granite counters, and a walk-in pantry in the kitchen, convenient upstairs laundry complete with washer and dryer, extra storage in the attached garage, and a private landscaped back yard. This property is close to Soka University and all of the wonderful walking and biking trails in Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park. Aliso Viejo Town Center is nearby with shopping and restaurants, and of course, just minutes from world-class beaches and resorts. Welcome home!
