Life at the top is always better, and 13 Calle Tamara at Alta in San Clemente’s preferred community of Talega is among the enclave’s newest and finest. Five bedrooms, including ensuites, and five-and-one-half baths ensure comfort for everyone in the home, which extends approximately 5,380 square feet over two levels and includes a main-floor bedroom, an office with built-ins, a rotunda foyer with floating circular staircase, a secondary office, and an upper-level bonus room with entertainment center and walk-in bar. Opening to the backyard through slide-away glass-panel doors, a great room with custom built-in entertainment center and fireplace flows directly to a kitchen with breakfast room, butler’s pantry, island with seating, granite countertops with full backsplash, a massive walk-in pantry, and upgraded stainless steel appliances including a built-in refrigerator. Wood flooring and designer carpet accompany handsome tile throughout the residence, which exhibits plantation shutters, mocha cabinetry, generous built-ins and high ceilings. A covered view deck complements a primary suite that hosts two walk-in closets, separate showers, a soaking tub and dual vanities. Unparalleled storage is available in an oversized laundry room with built-in cabinetry and a utility sink.
