Tie Up at an Unusual Private Enclave

20_Bay_Island-2320_Bay_Island-03Renowned architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood, creator of Yosemite’s Ahwahnee Hotel and Utah’s Bryce Canyon Lodge, designed this gracious Bay Island home. Lovingly restored and modernized in 2004, the home retains its original character and charm, gleaming hardwood floors and shiny white paneled walls, but was upgraded with every amenity.Originally a gun club in the early 1900s for the wealthy of Southern California, Bay Island today is a small, private sanctuary consisting of 23 residences with a commonly owned tennis court, caretaker’s cottage, lush formal gardens, mature trees and wide private beach.  Situated in the heart of Newport Harbor, with commanding views of the harbor’s main turning basin and  Saddleback Mountain, this home features an elegant kitchen, formal dining room, covered porch, living room with a fireplace, luxurious master suite, and three additional family bedrooms. Moreover, it is equipped with a private pier and a slip where a 65-foot boat can tie up.
