Description

Designed by famed architect Carl Lindbom and built during the City's inception in 1927, 'The Hugo Carlson Residence' is one of San Clemente's most iconic homes. Featured by Architectural Digest in 1929, acclaimed architect Lindbom also designed San Clemente's two most supreme historic Spanish Revival estates , 'The Casa Romantica' originally know as 'The Home' and legacy estate of San Clemente's original developer, Ole Hanson, as well as President Nixon's 'Western Whitehouse', also known as La Casa Pacifica or originally The Cotton Estate. Commanding nearly a quarter of an acre parcel near T-Street beach in prime southwest San Clemente, homes of this vintage are rare to this region and seldom come to market. Upon entering the compound through the colorful coach gateway, a grand and romantic courtyard with centered fountain creates a private oasis and an unforgettable first impression. This patio is incredible and sets the precedent for what's to come. Through the decorative and beefy original doors, an amazing experience captivates you within transferring you back in time. On the main level, a cozy study leads to formal living with dining room beyond the large archway. A galley kitchen to the rear of the home, one bedroom and a half bathrooml, all centered around the lovely atrium patio on the main level. Original features including Spanish Revival painted doors, profound construction and woodwork, various archways / arched windows, gas fireplace, narrow Oak floors & rustic wood-cladded ceilings, French casement windows, beamed ceilings, and lath & plaster walls all create an authentic living experience unmatched. The feeling here is awe-inspiring. Up the original staircase, the primary suite features beamed ceilings, and a covered balcony overlooking the sprawling rear yard. The lush grounds around the home comprise more than half the lot with mature canary palms, lavish landscaping, citrus trees, succulents and cactuses, ancient vines, palms, and sprawling lawns. Just adjacent the master, an exterior covered mezzanine leads to a guest suite with peek ocean views through Moorish arch, vaulted beamed ceilings, and a 3/4 en suite bathroom. A historic resource (eligible for reduced property taxes under the Mills Act), a massive beach-close parcel, captivating architecture, immense privacy (single-level homes surrounding), peek ocean views upstairs and truly impossible to replicate, this is of the most significant opportunities.
