1144 Isabella Avenue Listing Description

Spectacular Queen Anne Victorian affectionately known as "The Baby Del" on rare half-acre lot. A few Steps to the white sands of Coronado’s renowned beach, the “Baby Del” proudly stands as one of San Diego’s most magnificent Victorian landmarks. Its architecture is reminiscent of the Hotel del Coronado a few blocks away. Built in 1887, then known as The Livingston House, it was a news-worthy monumental move on land and barge in 1983 from San Diego to its majestic seaside location, and has been lovingly restored and enjoyed by its two owners since. Private 1/2 Acre Compound with Gardens, Turrets, stained glass, wrought-iron work, copper gutters and gold leaf create a bond to an earlier, more gracious time. The home was designated as a Historical Landmark and received a Mills Act designation, which makes it eligible for certain property-tax reductions and is truly One of a Kind. First time for sale in 26 years. At 55 feet, this Estate is the tallest house in Coronado. Additionally it is one of the eight largest home lots on the island allowing for extensive gardens, abundance of parking, an oversized garage with alley access, gated front circular driveway, and three Guest Houses, two of which are located in what was formally used as a Carriage House built in 1887. The interior of the Estate is a creative blend of classic and modern amenities with Panoramic white water Ocean Views and breezes, as well as views of the City Skyline, Point Loma, Mexico and Coronado Islands. 12+-foot-tall ceilings, arched doorways, turrets, time period leaded-glass front door and windows, three fireplaces, wine cellar in basement accessible by staircase or elevator, formal Dining Room, Parlor, sun room with tile floors and drain is perfect for pet washing room, 3 to 5 spacious bedrooms, Study, secret playroom, Chef's Kitchen. 3 additional bedrooms in Guest Houses. Solid steel spiral staircase connects the four levels on the house adjacent to elevator. Grand "Crown Room" with 19 glass doors with wraparound deck lead to the private compound and gardens designed for entertaining large and small gatherings. Glass enclosed showroom is a beautiful focal point of the grounds and is perfect for displaying antique vehicle (tractor does not convey), use for a greenhouse or hosting a bar. Gazebo, outside shower, private patios, BBQ and customized serving areas. Oversized garage set up for caterers with multiple sinks, microwaves, refrigerator, storage, and has attic above for added storage alley access. Additional storage for recreational toys through double gate on alley. Garden lighting and spotlights highlight the lush and beautiful landscaping including the exotic Victorian Dragon tree which was relocated by crane to it’s new surroundings in 1983. The dragon tree, also known as Dracaena Draco, is native to the Canary Islands and is thought to be the oldest living plant. With its name derived from the Greek expression for “female dragon,” it is known for its reddish sap, said to resemble the blood of a dragon and thought to have medicinal value. Fruit trees, Melalucea, Podocarpus, and Ficus Trees form a a privacy hedge around estate. Just a short drive over the bridge or ride on the ferry from Downtown San Diego, this special Island has been known as Hollywood’s Playground since the 1920s. Presidents, Hollywood Stars and Starlets discovered that The Hotel Del Coronado was the “in” place to stay. This lovely little Family Friendly Village has superior walkability to so many community events, concerts in the park, dining, boutiques, entertainment, golfing, sailing and beach fun.
