About 29981 Hillside
Inspired by classic Tudor and French Provencal architecture, this timeless residence offers every version of the California dream. Surrounded by the serenity of the beautiful rolling hills of San Juan Capistrano’s desirable Stoneridge Estates, the Tom Carney Builders masterpiece is being offered for the first time since its construction. Encompassing approximately 1.09 acres on highly secluded grounds, the property combines countryside tranquility with Orange County accessibility. Featuring a lower and upper lot, the Estate’s dramatic, extra wide frontage welcomes you and your guests. A private gate provides both elegance and security, leading to an ample motor court with Porte Cochere. Open space abounds, with the lower lot offering endless possibilities to accommodate almost any buyer’s specific vision. The existing courtyard easily becomes a sport court, pool, or great lounge. The Estate also affords the unique possibility to construct an ADU in multiple locations, including on either the upper lot, with its serene canyon and city light views, or the lower lot, separate from the two existing structures. The property is equestrian zoned, can accommodate equine operations and presents easy access to horse facilities and trails. Inside the elegant home, a double-door turret-style foyer with circular staircase provides a grand first impression and leads to a formal Great Room with ambient, custom windows, a formal dining room, a living room with gaming/bar area, and interior French doors leading to the Library. Extra light and bright, the regal residence reveals soaring ceilings, floor to ceiling original wood wainscoting, parquet hardwood flooring, new modern fixtures, and upgraded LED lighting throughout. Enjoy socializing during meal prep and party time in an island kitchen with modern cabinetry, granite countertops, a bay window, pantry and breakfast area. Approximately 4,003 square feet, the four-bedroom, four-bath home offers a separate guest wing with full bath on the main floor and a second-level primary suite with a fireplace, sitting area, view balcony, two grand walk-in closets, dual sinks, a jetted, soaking tub and separate shower. The detached three-car garage boasts a full ground-floor bath and a loft that can become a work from home office, art studio and more. Downtown San Juan Capistrano, pristine beaches, Dana Point Harbor, top-tier schools, including the acclaimed St. Margaret’s, and countless recreational attractions are all nearby.
