Exquisite equestrian estate on 2.5 acres just minutes to San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point Harbor and world class beaches (not near city of Murrieta). The gated community of Rancho Carrillo sits on the edge of Orange County, in a valley with 75 mini ranches, surrounded by stunning National Forest, and enjoys coastal climate and breezes. Experience a lifestyle of peaceful living, yet close to the best of what Orange County and Southern California has to offer! Driving up the paved community road, you are filled with sweeping views of mountains, Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, and then greeted with a canopy of Oak trees leading you into the neighborhood. The gated, brick driveway lined with cherry trees then welcomes you home. This Mediterranean estate is an architectural beauty, sitting on one of the premier, private lots with horse and hiking trails right out of your back door. Walking up to the house you're invited in by mature Oak trees, beautiful landscaping and a tranquil courtyard. Then you are "wowed" with a Great Room boasting 25 ft. ceilings with a wall of windows capturing nature's wonder and views of the resort style backyard with a sparkling pool, waterfall, and Koi ponds.
