Coronado CA 92118
This quintessential Victorian beach house, an historic landmark known to locals as the “red Victorian,” stands as an icon of timeless elegance and architectural pedigree. Situated in Coronado’s prestigious “golden triangle,” the location is only one block from the beach near the iconic Hotel del Coronado. Constructed c.1890, 1021 E Ave is the oldest surviving Queen Anne Victorian on the island, second only to the Hotel del (1888). This home is not just a rare example of the Queen Anne style but a trove of period details meticulously preserved. From the fir floors to numerous original double-hung, wooden windows, every aspect reflects a bygone era of craftsmanship. Period woodwork, original doorknobs and etched hinges showcase artistry rarely seen today. The house is modernized while preserving its historic integrity, with remodels to the kitchen and upstairs bath adding modern comforts like a shower alongside a clawfoot tub. A first-floor powder room, added closets, and heating are among the contemporary updates. The porch and spacious yard with mature landscaping set this house apart, a haven just a block from the ocean and shopping on Orange Ave. Ocean breezes and abundant light create a magical ambiance, and there’s no better place to enjoy the sunset than from the front porch or bedroom-window seat. A once-in-a-generation chance to acquire a home steeped in history and charm, this is more than a place to live. It is a testament to Coronado's heritage and an invitation to be part of its legacy. Recently approved for Mills Act (a benefit of lower property taxes).
