DON'T MISS OUT!!! Rare opportunity to own a former, Meritage Homes model in Menifee, extravagantly upgraded by the Meritage design team. This property, located in the heart of the Audie Murphy Ranch development, is perfectly situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, with loads of curb appeal, unique features, and move-in ready option. Expertly landscaped entrance brings you to the front porch and foyer, which includes an optional library/bedroom and powder room. The dining room, great room, and kitchen offer airy, open-concept living, incorporating upgraded cabinetry and a delightful island with bar seating. Great room also features a Cosmo fireplace and floating mantel, for a sleek, modern style. The large sliding door leads to a backyard built for entertaining: covered patio with ceiling fan and custom-installed audio speakers, large grass lawn, and a second patio area ideal for a firepit or even spa! Upstairs you will discover a large loft, three additional bedrooms, and the owner’s suite, in addition to the laundry room.
