Discover this exceptionally rare ownership opportunity on Newport Beach’s private Bay Island, one of the most exclusive addresses in the world. The only natural island in Newport Harbor, Bay Island is limited to just 23 estates on 5.5 acres, with residents enjoying common ownership of a tennis court, sandy beaches, botanical gardens and an off-island parking structure. A gated bridge welcomes homeowners, guests and golf carts, creating an automobile-free restful paradise where residents can create memories and traditions that will last for generations. This custom bay-front Hamptons-inspired shingle-style estate showcases phenomenal views of Newport Harbor, yachting activity and sunsets while recalling the charm of the Eastern Seaboard inside and out. Four bedrooms and 5.5 baths are revealed in a 3-level floorplan of approximately 4,400 square feet that features an office, and a game room/guest suite or 5th bedroom. Gracious staircases and an elevator serve all 3 levels, including a main floor that showcases a living room, a dining room reminiscent of a fine vintage yacht with a beamed barrel ceiling, and a family room with built-in entertainment center, wine storage and bay views.
Recently upgraded, the warm and inviting home boasts a new kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, white tile backsplash, custom white Shaker cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, a glass greenhouse morning room, fashionable brushed-brass fixtures, an island with seating, a breakfast bar, and top-tier stainless steel appliances including a built-in refrigerator and a Wolf range with pot filler. Refinished walnut floors, mahogany millwork, white tongue-n-groove ceilings, numerous windows, slide-away and French doors, white wainscoting, new LED lighting and more create a bright and elegant ambiance throughout. New enhancements shine in a bay-view master suite with Carrara marble countertops and surrounds, a stand-alone tub and high-brass fixtures.
