According to a recent USNewsNow article, after three generations of the Hansen family living in the iconic home at the corner of 10th and A Streets, the towering Tudor mansion was sold in June 2016 to a buyer who wishes to remain anonymous. Leo Hansen originally purchased this amazing 14,000 square-foot mansion at 711 A Avenue at auction in 1950.
There are some excellent pics available in the article regarding the sale of the property after 66 years of Hansen family ownership. The home was designed in 1898 for a retired executive from Standard Oil. The designers were two local architects named William Hebbard and Irving Gill.
The former Surgeon General of New York, Marshall O. Terry, bought the Historic Coronado Mansion in 1915. Some of the many notable personalities that frequented the Historic Coronado Mansion include Lilian Gish and Anita Page, as well as Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. And, in 1977 it became a bonafide Coronado Historical Landmark. In addition, the mansion was utilized in 1996 as a movie set for the made-for-TV movie entitled “What Love Sees”, starring Annabeth Gish and Richard Thomas.
The Historic Coronado Mansion was sold on June 17 by Joseph Lerner. He is a Realtor at Keller Williams San Diego Central Coast and is well-known around the area as a true luxury real estate agent.
