Rare, spacious front unit. Echoing the charm of a Napa farmhouse, 305 Grand Canal is the perfect marriage of craftsmanship and luxurious modern comfort. Located on historic Balboa Island with a mooring for up to an 18' boat, it's the perfect spot to launch your paddle boards. Truly a rare find, this 4bdrm/4ba residence with new HVAC system is great for entertaining with a formal dining area adjacent to the open concept kitchen. Quartz countertops, handcrafted beamed ceilings, stainless steel appliances, cabinets, island, and farmhouse sink make this kitchen the envy of many a chef. A spacious living room looks out to the sun-drenched front patio and Grand Canal views. The downstairs bedroom and remodeled bathroom are perfect for guests. Upstairs, the master suite is reminiscent of your favorite boutique hotel, with a sunny balcony, gorgeously appointed, remodeled bathroom with dual vanities, a clawfoot spa tub, marble flooring, separate shower and a walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms and bathrooms and a family room with kitchenette are upstairs. A spiral staircase from the upstairs family room leads you to the lushly landscaped, cobblestone courtyard, complete with outdoor fireplace. The details abound from stone & walnut hardwood floors, designer lighting, French-inspired hardware, forged metal staircase & gates, custom blinds, French drains, and copper rain gutters. Zoned R2, this home has been a great vacation rental and could also be returned to a 2-unit property.
