8 Bay Island
Newport Beach, California, 92661 $8,495,000
Tucked away on an undisturbed private island of just 23 homes is this idyllic 4-br, 4.5-ba harbor front estate with sandy bay beach and designated boat slip just beyond its walls. Panoramic views of the harbor evoke a sense of peace and tranquility from within the home, as is felt across the island which is a welcomed escape from the buzzing beach activity past its gate. Flanked by stone pathways, mature landscaping, ledge stone and shingle siding, the Eastern-seaboard style home presents a charming façade that is both timeless and welcoming. An extensive renovation (2008) is evident upon entry into the home showcasing designer lighting, gleaming wood floors and custom millwork. Two tankless water heaters, updated plumbing and electrical (2008), thermal windows and insulation were among other upgrades. Measuring more than 3,000 SF, the estate enjoys an effortless flow between the harbor-view living room with built-in audio, chef’s kitchen with dual dishwashers and wine refrigerator, and dining room, as well as, a lower level office with en suite bath. The second level reveals a flex space and 4 bedrooms including the master suite fit with fireplace, dual closets, soaking tub and Juliet balcony overlooking the bay. Completing the residence is an outdoor shower and picturesque patio with views extending across the harbor to Fashion Island. A tennis court and botanical garden are additional highlights of an exclusive, sequestered life on Bay Island in the heart of Newport Beach.
