After 65 years, the Downton Abbey of Coronado with Old World carved wood doors and panels, designed ceilings, rare wallpaper, and finest craftsmanship one of Coronado’s premiere estates, is on the market. 9 Beds, 13 baths sitting on 3/4 of an acre. It is perfectly set up for elegant gatherings and large families. Situated near the center of town, it is just a short walk to restaurants, parks, golf course, tennis and beach. This home boasts palatial grounds and expansive rooms for entertaining. With its small-town Americana feel, Coronado is one of the most highly rated and coveted beach cities in California. 711 A Avenue is located only a few short blocks from the main artery of Coronado’s community heart, also known as ‘The Village’. Directly across the bay from metropolitan San Diego, life in this affluent resort town of less than 25,000 includes golfing at the renowned waterside course, sailing out of Glorietta Bay, surfing and sunbathing in the Pacific, as well as browsing the collection of small specialty shops and dining in the fine eateries along Orange Avenue. Whether a resident or a tourist, one immediately will notice the high and steep-pitched roof lines as well as the adobe and wood exterior walls of this impressive house. Features of this 30-room mansion include 9 bedrooms, 13 bath and powder rooms, a ballroom, and a walnut-paneled living room with a hidden doorway and private stairwell to the wine cellar. The reserved luxury of the formal dining room with a splendid fireplace promises another 100 years of memorable feasts. The caretaker suites and servant entries add to the functionality of the estate, as does the elevator and dumbwaiter. The original period appliances in the kitchen including the iceboxes and gas stove are updated, though they preserve a museum quality appearance. Beautifully styled gables and dormer windows provide amble light through the beveled glass, and architectural details like sterling silver electrical and bathroom fixtures, as well as the priceless Delft tiles that artistically frame one of the many fireplaces, should not be overlooked. Inside, the marble-arched entry way welcomes visitors and ocean breezes alike. The floorplan here is a textbook case of an English country house layout. Chambers throughout include a study, an anteroom, sitting rooms, the library, the butler’s pantry and vestibules; and, mapping one’s initial orientation should begin with one of the more dramatic features — the grand wooden staircase. Each of its landings could be scenes from the famous Hearst Castle. Artistic archways and detailed handiwork seems to document one’s ascent from the large first-floor entry hall to the third-floor Chinese room. Ornamental ceiling treatments and hidden doorways add to the awe. The master bedrooms on the second floor are all complete suites, and the rooftop Widow’s Walk offers 360-degree views including Glorietta Bay, downtown San Diego’s skyline, picturesque western sunsets, and the iconic red-roof shingles of the Del resort. Sunrooms, covered balconies and porches overlook the green expanse of the estate’s park-like yard. The back patio terrace is ideal for outdoor socials, and its steps lead to dining and seating areas, as well as the pergola-covered path through the gardens across the lawn. This property originally was developed from five parcels and the owner will have an option to split lots.
