This nautically-inspired, Contemporary-style, Balboa Peninsula bayfront home was a collaboration between its “hands-on” owner and the late architect, Kurt Donat. Located on a prime corner lot with spectacular harbor, turning basin, Saddleback mountain and Fashion Island night light views, the home features stunning architecture, an extraordinary blending of indoor and outdoor spaces and a thoughtfully designed open floor plan. The downstairs of the home features a wall of floor to ceiling retracting... doors to the outside, a huge great room with polished concrete floors and a metal fireplace, a large island kitchen with stainless steel appliances, English Sycamore cabinets and marble countertops; a downstairs bedroom with an ensuite bath, a powder bath and a huge 3-car attached garage. The upstairs of the home has a large waterfront master suite that extends the full width of the home and has a fireplace, built-in desk, and an elegant limestone bath complete with a Jacuzzi tub. In addition, there is a loft space, four large bedrooms and two generous sized baths. The palette of finish materials includes Maple ceilings, English Sycamore cabinets, Mahogany floors, limestone, marble, stainless steel railings, Venetian plaster, a Zinc roof, and Brazilian Blue granite. The 43 foot wide bayside patio features a firepit, lush succulent landscaping, and a private pier and slip for several boats. All the fun of Balboa is at your door, swimming, sailing, paddleboarding and more.
