Charming curb appeal of this two-story home includes elegantly manicured landscaping and a mixture of exterior textures featuring stucco, stacked stone, and wood accent window surrounds. Entering through the rich blue front door, the open and bright floor plan greets warmly, highlighted by pristine bamboo hardwood flooring and with a peek into the formal dining room through the arched pass through.

Spacious and functional, the kitchen and family room combine to create a strong heart of the home, boasting oversized, airy windows and sliding door access to the cool backyard. The kitchen itself is marvelous, including maple cabinets with ample storage, polished granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a wide center island with a sink and bar seating. If you are feeling a tad more formal but aren’t up for eating in the dining room, a breakfast nook is just beyond. Sharing the open space, the family room offers built-in cabinets and niches to go with a cozy fireplace and mantel, forming the perfect spot to snuggle on the couch with the family for a flick or host your friends for the “big game.” Also on the bottom floor is a generous guest room.
Upstairs are 3 additional bedrooms, including the master retreat, and a full-sized laundry room with tons of storage space. Open and alluring, the master bedroom includes a posh sitting area that can be converted into an additional bedroom, or used as a quiet, serene space to enjoy a peaceful moment. The master bath complements with a wide countertop and his-and-hers sinks, a deep soaking tub, and enclosed shower with rainfall showerhead. Completing the Zen-like state of the upstairs quarters, a wide balcony offers a Pacific Ocean view and overlooks the lush backyard and canyon beyond the back fence.
No Southern California beach house would be complete without an incredible backyard. Built to entertain, including a massive L-shaped outdoor kitchen with barbecue, sink, and raised bar lip to go with an above-ground fire pit, the open, finished space is ideal for hosting shindigs of the highest caliber. A wide and deep grass area is the perfect place to let the kids run around in the golden SoCal sunshine, and with no neighbors directly behind, creating a private feel.
