Corinthian Island is not actually an island, but a spit of land that stretches out into the bay. The tiny, tony community includes homes in both Belvedere and Tiburon and given those high-end locales, it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s also home to the second-oldest yacht club in the country. It has less than 60 homes.

Many of the homes on Corinthian Island have their own docks, but not 74 Bellevue, which instead sits atop a private promontory above the water at the southernmost tip of the “island.” It was custom-built for its owners from the ground up in 2002 and has never before been on the market. It is now making its debut at just under $30 million.

The home's ultra-high price point will not be an issue for the right buyer, even with the current stormy economic climate, according to listing agent Bill Smith, who believes there is still plenty of wealth in the Bay Area. He thinks the home will be particularly attractive to high-end San Franciscans looking for more space, jaw-dropping views and fine, custom finishes.

The grand foyer of the home replaced a dilapidated property in the same location in 2002. The owners were very involved with the design decisions, which were led by architect Nuncio de Santis from HKS Dallas and interior designer Paul Duesing with Trisha Wilson Design, also in Dallas.
