This stylish “1912” California Craftsman Beach Bungalow will “tug at your heart” with its charm and vintage character of yesteryear. Located on historic Island Avenue, one house from Newport Bay and a block to the beach, this Balboa Peninsula home will bring back all of your fondest memories of time spent at the beach. Stylishly remodeled by its current owners with all of “the trimmings” the home is entered through a gleaming red painted front door, from an elevated covered porch, perfect for whiling the day away, reading a good book or greeting passing neighbors. The lower level of the home features a living room with period board and batten siding, a brick fireplace, hardwood floors, a dining area, original “wavy glass” windows, an updated kitchen with glass front cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a bedroom, office, bath with a clawfoot tub and steam shower, and a handsome laundry with granite countertops. The upstairs of the home features two bedrooms and an abundance of storage. The outside of the home has a built-in barbeque and beach bathroom. All of the fun of Newport Beach is out your door, swimming, sailing, paddleboarding, volleyball, surfing and riding your bike along the boardwalk or heading to the “world famous” Fun Zone for Balboa Bars, a ride on the Ferris Wheel or dining at one of the Peninsula’s great restaurants. The best news is that this stylish home is being offered “turnkey,” almost fully furnished.
