The sellers are just completing a whole home contemporary remodel that will include fresh paint, wide-plank flooring, 2” white slat custom blinds, G.E. stainless steel appliances, remodeled baths including beautiful double shower & quartz/granite counters.  Anderson/French sliding doors from both masters and living room lead to a ‘grassy’, private back yard perfect for relaxing or entertaining under the drop string lighting that run from tree to tree. There is a walk-in closet in one master and a wall of closets in the other. Full-size inside laundry room w/ storage off leads to direct access garage w/ epoxy floors, storage & newer water heater. Each bedroom has its own linen closet so it is great for roommates. After a long day at work, you can relax your cares away in the nearby pool & spa. This pristine community is situated next to exquisite Serrano Park homes with walking trails, greenbelts and parks all around. Only a few miles from the Irvine Spectrum businesses, entertainment & dining venues!  A short stroll to shopping and eateries. This condo looks like a model and will blow out right after its Outback Steakhouse luncheon!
