Spectacular Queen Anne Victorian affectionately known as "The Baby Del" on rare half-acre lot. A few Steps to the white sands of Coronados renowned beach, the Baby Del proudly stands as one of San Diegos 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 firepl Spectacular Queen Anne Victorian affectionately known as "The Baby Del" on rare half-acre lot.
