This past June, one of the most famous residences in San Diego, the historic Coronado Mansion, located at 711A Avenue, was sold to an anonymous buyer in a record-breaking deal. The 14,000-square foot mansion, which sits on more than 30,000 square feet of land, is an architectural masterpiece that was originally built in 1898 for A.P. Stephens, a retired Standard Oil executive. William Hebbard and Irving Gill crafted the original design, but what the public sees today is the work of Edward G. Bolles. Marshall O. Terry, who purchased the property from Stephens commissioned Terry to redesign the estate in the early 1920s.

Leo and Helen Hansen purchased the estate in 1950, with ownership remaining in the Hansen family for three generations until Joseph Lerner and our team Keller Williams San Diego Central Coast closed the deal.
