208 Del Gado Road, San Clemente, CA 92672
Located just 1/4 mile from the sand, this Chris Abel designed mid-century modern bungalow is nestled in the highly sought-after community of Vista Del Gado. In this community of only 54 residences, timeless architecture blends beautifully with a quintessential beach lifestyle. Take a quick e-bike ride to San Clemente or Dana Point via the paved bike trail along PCH and enjoy easy access to beaches, dining, coffee shops, and night life. Return home to this private community reminiscent of a peaceful Palm Springs enclave. The saltwater pool is solar-heated and the perfect place to cool off and enjoy a book or a sip. Completely turnkey, this light and bright 912 sqft bungalow has been recently updated with interior paint, new solid-core doors, new hardware throughout, new carpet in bedrooms, new fencing, landscaping, and is one of the few homes in the community to offer a gas fireplace. True to its mid-century bones, the open floor plan is warmed with natural wood tongue and groove ceilings throughout, and offers a spacious kitchen open to the dining space and living room accented with a brick wall. Views of the neighborhood, pool, architectural clubhouse, and Saddleback Mountain are captured from the main living areas and the front patio. Off the generously-sized primary bedroom is a private back patio waiting to be enhanced with greenery and turned into a mini retreat. The secondary bedroom gets abundant light with floor to ceiling windows and mirrored closet doors, and the full bathroom in the hallway is a great size with dual vanities and a skylight. There is a reason that opportunities to buy in this community rarely present themselves. Truly a unique offering to own a piece by renowned architect Chris Abel in a community just steps (or pedal strokes) to all the things that San Clemente dreams are made of.
