Philippe Kahn's Corinthian Island Home Is a Yachtsman's Dream (House of the Day)




Congratulations to @FHAllenRealtors for submitting last week's #housepornthurs winner!

Staring out over San Francisco Bay, this four-story, waterfront home on Corinthian Island, an exclusive community in Belvedere, Calif., is a yachtsman's dream -- after all, it was designed by one.

The four-bedroom $11.95 million home was built by Philippe Kahn, who is famous for creating camera-phone technology that allows users to share photos on the Internet. In addition to being a tech heavyweight, Kahn is an avid sailor and founded the sailing team Pegasus Racing. So it's no coincidence that the home is brimming with boat-friendly features.

Nestled into a woodsy hillside of Corinthian Island, the stark, rectangular mansion boasts an expansive waterfront deck whose motorized gangway connects it to a dock. The deck also has a lift capable of hoisting a 12,000-pound boat and a davits for tending to a smaller vessel.

Additional amenities include a media room, gym, sauna and pool. There are also two terraces that offer panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and the city's financial district.


Bill Smith of FHAllenRealtors has the listing.

This home is the winner of last week's #housepornthurs, a weekly Twitter conversation hosted by @aolrealestate. Tweet listings to AOL Real Estate with the hashtag #housepornthurs every Thursday for a chance to have one of your submissions featured as a House of the Day the following week.
