**RARE GEM** Located in the highly sought after boutique gated community of ALISO in North La Quinta (homes rarely go on the market here). The prime location and low HOA dues make this charming and special community a LOCAL FAVORITE. This spacious 3 bed/3 bath home sits on the coveted oversized CORNER LOT with an abundance of privacy and mountain views. The popular open floorplan features a large master bedroom with attached retreat, perfect for an office, gym, nursery, or often converted to a 4th bedroom. Vaulted ceilings in the main living areas as well as a unique duel fireplace and media niche. The exceptionally PRIVATE south facing backyard boasts a sparkling pool/spa, mature landscaping with manicured lawn and citrus trees, and two patios with lovely alumawood covers create the perfect space to entertain. Expansive built-in storage cabinets in the spacious attached garage are an added bonus. 3 accredited IB world schools are within walking distance just outside the gates (grades 1-12) and this intimate community of Aliso also offers a private gated entry to La Quinta Park, offering walking paths, picnic, and recreational areas.
