This Traditional-style bayfront “cottage” lies on the western shore of historic Bay Island and features endless views of Newport Harbor, the main turning basin, the Balboa shoreline, Newport Harbor Yacht Club’s mooring field, Lido Isle, and in wintertime, the snow-covered San Bernardino mountains. From this vantage point your vistas are an everchanging kaleidoscope of sailing regattas, paddleboarders, morning crew workouts, boat parades, and never-ending sunsets. Accessed by a private bridge from the Balboa Peninsula, Bay Island, the harbors only natural Island, originally began as a “gun club” in 1903; where its earliest owners shot ducks from its shores. Today, Bay Island is one of Newport Beach's most exclusive addresses - a private 5.5 acre sanctuary of 23 waterfront homes that commonly own a tennis court, parking structure, wide sandy beach, grassy lawns, mature trees, and lush botanical and cutting gardens. This gracious French Normandy revival home features richly stained dark hardwood floors, beautifully proportioned rooms including a huge great room with a fireplace and built-in bookcases, a family room, remodeled kitchen, an elegant master suite with a marble bath, three additional bedrooms, four baths, a lower-level multi-purpose room and a private boat dock that can accommodate a boat to 60’ and several side ties. All of the fun of Newport Beach is out your door, swimming, sailing, boating, paddleboarding, biking or strolling the boardwalk, fine dining, high-end retail shopping, and the “world famous” Fun Zone is an easy walk away. Bay Island is one of Southern California’s most unique and gracious locations and this is a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to purchase one of its twenty-three bayfront residences.
