Coronado condo description

This aesthetic studio/junior one bedroom apartment was enlarged to 700 square feet to maximize indoor space while retaining a step-out balcony. The double paned sliding glass doors open 2/3's of the way to give the sense of being on a balcony while indoors. The apartment has been freshly and exquisitely decorated in soothing tones of cream and mauve with touches of sea green and contains some beautiful art work by local artists depicting mostly local scenes. The furniture is very comfortable including the sumptuously comfortable king pillow-top bed, the cream leather sectional and new carpet and tile. The deep sleeping alcove leads to a large walk-in closet and is separated from the living, dining and study areas by two sets of Japanese Soja screens. One wall is done in floor-to-ceiling mirror panel to enhance the views and light.

When you enter the apartment through an impressive tiled foyer your line of sight goes deep to the San Diego skyline in the distance and the reflected view of the turrets of the Hotel Del Coronado which also appears in some of the art work in the apartment. Even the striped tub and shower curtain mimics the tents of the original tent city on which the building now stands.

La Sierra Tower is one of the most coveted of Coronado Shores' ten buildings as it is directly on the Pacific Ocean with its own beach and is the closest of the ten building complex to the Hotel Del Coronado and its award winning beach. Immediately behind the building is a beach walk that takes you on the beach side of the hotel all the way to the center of town.
Coronado Shores has its own beautiful beach as well.

An underground garage space is included as well as cable wide-screen TV.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1977

                  About the owner: After visiting my parents who bought an apartment in Coronado Shores, I found this adorable studio and have never had trouble renting when I couldn't be there. In 1993 I did extensive improvements and mounted a decorating scheme which has turned out to be quite pleasing to me and my guests. Then, a few years ago I did a 'push out' capturing much of the balcony space to create more indoor space but retaining a step-out balcony. I also replaced the sliders with double paned windows that open 2/3 rds of the way to create a very open feeling during the warmer months, and covered the windows with silent translucent electronic screens. I also updated the kitchen appliances and added a Euro hand-held shower in the bathroom. In addition I augmented the art works in the apartment to include several paintings of local beach scenes, some depicting the Hotel Del and Coronado Bay Bridge and two pastels in rustic frames by a local artist who sketched the scenes at Giverny, Monet's country home in France. A leading local interior designer came in one day to inspect the custom valence he had installed and proclaimed 'This is a sweet apartment!' I put my heart and soul into it and everyone, including Barbara Sinatra, believe it or not, has enjoyed staying in it. This September, 2013, I substantially upgraded the decor by installing new carpet and balcony tile, adding a cream leather sectional, a desk and chair and two lamps and other decorative accessories and the result is very pleasing. As for Coronado Island, what can I say, except that as a world traveler myself, having visited every continent in the world, Coronado is the place I most cherish of all others for its charm, its people, its great year round climate, and for being able to walk along the beach in the morning and at sunset when everything turns silver, thus, its name, the silver strand.

                  Why the Owner Chose Coronado:
                  My parents purchased an apartment in this complex to use during the summers following retirement. I was lucky enough to be able to afford my own apartment to stay in while they were in residence and have never regretted it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  There is so much to do in and around the San Diego area with its myriad ocean beaches and bay front attractions, not to mention the renaissance of San Diego itself, that it's impossible to list them all. But, as time goes by, Coronado itself emerges as the best of the best of San Diego living with its beach rated the best family beach in America, its great restaurants, its live equity theater, its community center and theater, its newly renovated movie theater and its Ferry Landing. San Diego has Balboa Park with its Shakespeare theater, the world famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, the harbor front, the Gass Lamp district, Seaport Village and many more a short drive from the apartment. The year round climate is the best in the US and you can navigate to so many attractions without resort to a car since you are already in the center of the best of the best. When we approach our island home, as we reach the crest of the elliptical Coronado Bay Bridge, it is hard not to gasp at the beauty of the scene that unfolds of the bay, the ocean, Point Loma, and the turrets of the Hotel Del Coronado set against the emerald green of the Coronado Golf Course - it is the emerald isle and Xanadoo rolled into one spectacular image. No wonder it was the inspiration for the Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz!
