A truly unique opportunity to become part of the lifestyle and incomparable charm of Balboa Island. This vintage 1928 Balboa Island cottage has been enhanced and updated over the years, but remains a faithful steward of Balboa’s celebrated legacy. Once featured on the Balboa Island Cottage Home Tour, this cozy home is light and bright with 3 Bedrooms, 3 baths and many architectural details; Dutch door, wood burning fireplace, loft, artisan tile work and wood beamed vaulted ceilings. Located on the sunny side of the street at the quiet West end of Island, 205 Topaz is one block to the sand at South Bayfront; a short distance to a public guest dock on North Bayfront; and graces visitors with sparkling street-side views of the iconic Balboa Pavilion day and night. This highly coveted location is near award-winning schools, Balboa Island Park, shopping, dining and the legendary Island Ferry which shuttles cars, residents and visitors across the bay to beautiful Newport Beaches. Personalize the existing home and guest suite as an island-casual vacation hideaway, or build a dream home – the possibilities are endless. Attractively priced as one of the island’s most affordable full-size parcels. Changes in CA housing laws now restrict the reuse/repurposing of existing homes. Please check with the City of NB. If you are searching for a site to build your dream home this is the most attractive property for a new single family home.
