This contemporary beach cottage reflects the quintessential Balboa Island ethos yet offers an owner the benefits of newer construction. A refined palate fashioned by Concept Studio and built by Showalter Construction are executed to perfection. Architectural details adorned in cedar shake, brick, and Connecticut bluestone, invite guests through a Dutch door entry. The impressive open staircase sets the stage for the thoughtful details upon entry. Modern amenities such as Viking appliances, audio/video, and Lutron lighting systems, are present throughout the open floor plan. Main level accommodations feature a living room, dining area, kitchen, and powder bath, in a neutral palate accented by seafoam walls, grass cloth, and plank hard wood flooring. French doors open to the lushly landscaped private courtyard with a connection for indoor-outdoor living in the heated dining area, highlighted by a tranquil water feature and inground spa. The main house features two bedrooms upstairs with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace in the master and an expansive upper deck connecting the Casita over the two-car garage. Configured with a second rear entry, living room with fireplace, and an ensuite third bedroom, the Casita affords additional options for accommodating guests in privacy or integrating as part of the main house. Inspired comfort and relaxed living abound in an ideal location on the island. Close to Marine Ave shopping, the ferry, Fashion Island, and Newport Beach amenities.
