Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: I am originally from MN, but was raised in Ventura County and lived in Los Angeles before moving to the Newport area in 1974. I am an interior designer and have lived in this house off and on since it was purchased. We did move to NYC and LA for some periods of time over the years, but this has always been 'home'. I mostly raised my daughter from the age of 5 here. Now she and my grandchildren enjoy all of the same beach and 'Island' activities that have remained so much fun.

Why the Owner Chose Balboa Island, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
From the time my aunt brought me to Balboa Island when I was in junior high, I have had an affinity for 'The Island'. This house has great bones and amazing, charming detail. It was designed by a gentleman named Yale who favored the English Cotswolds style, though mine is more of a New England Salt Box He built seven houses on my block, on Coral and Turquoise in the 1930's. Everything, including doors, were hand built at that time when the wood had to be brought by barge and labor was very affordable.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is wonderful to be so close to the South bay front beach and just 3 blocks from the market and Marine Avenue shops and restaurants. The interior of this home has wonderful knotty pine which was dark - like a mountain cabin - when I purchased the house. We had to have the wood sandblasted in order to put a white wash on it, which is unique and more appropriate at the beach. The floors in the LR/DR are brick, set in a herringbone pattern. Unique and easy peasy.
