Welcome to 7 Santa Barbara Place. Nestled in the desirable gated community of The Estates at Rancho Niguel, this beautiful home is situated on the end of a peacefully quiet, private cul-de-sac. Enjoy gentle breezes and gorgeous sunsets from this hilltop location with stunning views of the surrounding area including Laguna Niguel Regional Park and lake. This sprawling 4000+ square foot 5BD/4BA + bonus upstairs loft (5th bedroom downstairs could be an office), offers a very flexible floorplan. Upon entry, an impressive foyer greets you with a grand spiral staircase, large windows, and soaring ceilings. A neutral palette creates a wonderful canvas to make this house your home.
