Es­tate holds fast to his­tory

Los Angeles Times - - HOME OF THE WEEK - By Neal J. Leit­ereg To sub­mit a can­di­date, send high-res pho­tos via Drop­box.com, pho­tog­ra­pher per­mis­sion and a de­scrip­tion of the house to home­ofthe­week@la­times.com.

This Coron­ado land­mark, known to most by the name Seashore, is un­of­fi­cially re­ferred to as the “Vel­cro man­sion” for former owner Clark Hartwell, who amassed his for­tune as an early in­vestor in the fas­ten­ing prod­uct.

Filled with char­ac­ter, the ocean-ad­ja­cent 1917 res­i­dence evokes the fa­mous sum­mer cot­tages of New­port, R.I., with its wide brick front, weath­ered shake sid­ing and prom­i­nent roofline. Three lev­els of el­e­gance look onto the sandy beach­front and ocean.

“SEASHORE,” A 100-YEAR-OLD home in Coron­ado, is also nick­named “the Vel­cro man­sion” for an ex-owner who was an in­vestor.

THOUGH THE RES­I­DENCE evokes sum­mer homes back East, the views take in the San Diego County coast­line and the Pa­cific.

NEAR THE grand foyer is a cof­fered-ceil­ing din­ing room. Other fea­tures: hard­wood f loors and del­i­cate mold­ing and wain­scot­ing.
