Just down the prettiest tree-lined street in all of Rancho Santa Margarita sets this beautifully updated home ready for a new homeowner! Located within the Villavante tract, a community nestled between the Tijeras Creek golf course the Arroyo Vista canyon. A spacious floorplan offers 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, inside laundry room, and plenty of storage. The newly refinished kitchen has white, shaker style cabinets with brushed nickel hardware, quartz countertops, a crisp mosaic tiled backsplash and wood-like tile flooring. The sunlit dining room is open to the family room with fireplace and built-in shelving. The main floor bedroom (just add a closet) has double doors and can be used as a den/office or converted to a third bedroom with an adjacent bath. Enjoy the newly refinished master bath in gorgeous earth-grey tones with a dual granite top vanity, subway tiled shower and bath, and plank tile flooring. The large master bedroom has a mirrored walk-in closet and private balcony. The secondary upstairs bedroom also has a private full bath and large closet. Enjoy the low-maintenance wrap around yard with mostly hardscape and beautiful plant beds. Just a short walk to the community pool and spa and canyon walking/bike trails or walk to the Tijeras Creek golf course for some tee time or an afternoon refreshment at the clubhouse restaurant. Also within walking distance to a highly rated elementary-junior high school, Arroyo Vista k-8 and the adjoining community park and pool.
