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.
