Coronado house description
“East Meets West” in this Asian inspired, architectural gem. Remodeled for its owners in 2005, this custom designed home of 3600 sq. ft. features 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom and was built with meticulous attention to detail using the finest quality materials. A sophisticated yet California casual home, it is located just 3 blocks from the charming downtown “village” of Coronado with its delightful shops and restaurants and numerous services.
This architectural gem is considered by many to be one of the finest homes on the Island. The lush gardens were recently ranked as among the “top 10” outdoor gardens in the city. This home typifies indoor outdoor living and takes full advantage of what many consider to be “the best climate in the world”. The “great room” kitchen, dining and family room features over-sized French doors that open up almost the entire back of the house to the exotic garden with imported rock wall fountain/pond. Featuring a patio with Indonesian day bed and a gas grill, this oasis is an ideal setting for entertaining family and friends, or a quiet refuge is which to relax with a good book.
We are looking for people who appreciate this home for what it is, exceptional!

- We are located 7 blocks from the beautful 1 mile long white sand beach in Coronado. Located in the center of town we are 2 blocks from the Public Library, 6 blocks from the bay, 7 blocks from the golf course. There are 6 bikes with our home and it's easy to ride everwhere in town and ride down the Silver strand 10 straight miles. San Diego is America's Finest City!! with the Zoo, Sea World, Legoland, right here, and Disney land 1.75 hrs away. During the summer months there is concert in the park at the central park in town, Our home is close enough to enjoy the music from our back yard without having to drag everything to the park for a picnic. Fire works can be seen several times throughout the week on our upper breezeway. We have a magical home centrally located in town. ...moreless

Serenity and unmatched beauty
Serenity and unmatched beauty
My family and I had the good fortune of spending our final week of summer vacation on the island of Coronado. While we were due to stay at the Del, we decided to rent instead. This property resonated with us on this site. But seeing is truly believing. Rico and Corinne have brought Asian beauty to this island, creating a meditative and awe inspiring homage to Balinese and Thai beauty. The balconies outside each bedroom provide a peaceful space, while the home itself opens out, with floor to ceiling large French style doors which are largely left open without screens. Except when it rains, no mosquitoes were ever seen while we let the breeze in day,or night. There is a canopied bed outside, flanked by a relief of a beautiful Buddha fountain. Our first moments lying there brought a hummingbird to our already gorgeous landscape. Other reliefs adorn two more walls within a beautifully gardened backyard. We enjoyed freshly squeezed lemon juice from the many lemons growing on the trees. The kitchen is as beautiful as the pictures reveal. There is a pantry space off the kitchen where we could store food items. We entertained friends during our stay, enjoying the ten person seating offered at the gorgeous wooden Thai table. With centrally controlled music and myriad stations available, one can create an atmospheric evening for all to enjoy. I can't say enough about this home. We were fortunate to have met Ric and Corinne before leaving - so kind and generous, eager to share their home with us. We will definitely visit back here some day, and encourage anyone smitten by the photos to do the same.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a great neighborhood, safe and quiet. Here you will be living in a small town with all the benefits of a big city. Coronado is a town rich in history, blessed with a Mediterranean climate and one of the most beautiful and pristine white sand beaches in the world. This uniquely endearing city boasts innumerable parks, an 18-hole public golf course and club house with restaurant adjacent to San Diego Bay, the world famous Hotel Del Coronado (one of the few remaining beach front hotels in California, and one of 7 wooden building of it's stature over 100+ yrs old, left in the USA). There are unlimited opportunities for bicycling around the island, with 14 municipal tennis courts, boat rentals at Coronado Yacht Club for sailing or kayaking on the bay, surfing, surfing lessons and swimming at the beach & the local newly constructed community pool. Coronado is resort living at it's best, easy to walk around, wide streets and friendly community living in one of the most secure and safest towns in America.
