OFFERED AT $2,595,000
Leon Yale was the outstanding Balboa Island builder of the 1930’s and 123 Apolena was his crowning achievement. Set in the one hundred block of Apolena known as “Story Book Row”, this restored home is truly one-of-a-kind. Among its superlative features: 4 bedrooms plus a second story great room with its own private staircase, pegged hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, decorative moldings and wainscoting, French doors, leaded glass windows, huge closets with built-in dressers, chef’s galley kitchen, a shaded front patio and enchanted interior courtyard with fountain, Dutch entry door, a beam in the entry way from the original Balboa Island Bridge, and a two-car garage plus 3rd parking space. And, not to be missed: the hand and footprints of the Yale children in the garage cement floor. At 2426 square feet, the home is larger than could be built today offering ideal full-time or vacation living. The one hundred block of Apolena does not allow a turn off of Park Avenue so guest parking is always plentiful. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to own a Balboa Island treasure!
