Much has changed in San Diego since the first generation of Hansens purchased this Tudor mansion at an auction in 1950. The glorious estate located at the corner of 711 A Avenue and 10th in Coronado, is one of the most photographed and toured homes in the San Diego area. This revered community landmark home was built in 1898 by the famous oil tycoon A.P. Stephens. For five decades, this 14,000 square foot masterpiece was the preferred playground for Hollywood elites, and has been used in countless television and movie productions.
After 66 years of continual ownership by the Leo and Helen Hansen family, the Gill and Hebbard mansion has been sold with help from the Lerner Realty Group. Due to the extreme amount of media exposure, the new owners wish to remain anonymous, but are quick to acknowledge the importance of their new treasure’s place in the psyche of suburban Coronado.
The three-story mansion features 80-foot brick walls, and nearly 30,000 square feet of property space. 30 unique rooms ranging from posh private bed chambers, to expansive dining areas have served an eclectic and executive list of guests. This mansion has 9 bedrooms, 12 powder and bath rooms, vaulted ceilings, a private wine cellar, and iconic outdoor landscaping. Many of the original period features have been preserved. These include gas stoves, antique ice boxes, dumbwaiters, an elevator, and sterling silver fixtures. This mansion was declared unique, and listed as a San Diego historical landmark in 1977.
The sale of this historic home broke records in the Coronado market. Joseph Lerner of Keller Williams San Diego Central Coast was the realtor who finalized the sale of this one-of-a-kind mansion. Mr. Lerner’s years of guiding the sales of luxury properties has set a new standard in this region’s real estate market. They have also preserved an iconic property for future generations.
