Seaview is a magnificent 6-bedroom, coastal home situated high on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the coastal town of Del Mar, CA. It is the latest project in North County for designer Flagg Design Studios.
The English Tudor home located at 1030 Olive Avenue was designated historic in the summer of 2013. Flagg Coastal Homes completed a major remodel and addition while maintaining its Historic designation and sold the home in December 2014. The completed house contains an approximately 3600 square foot main house plus a single-bedroom guesthouse and garage in rear of the project.
Crown Cottage is a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath cottage restored by Flagg Coastal Homes and completed in May of 2013. The home, located at 920 5th Ave was acquired by Gina Tapper, a long time friend of the OBrien’s and former La Jolla resident. Gina was only the second owner of this 1000 square foot cottage, originally built in 1936. Flagg added an additional 252 square feet, air conditioned the home and replaced all of the electrical and plumbing infrastructure. A new kitchen and family room was added and a new garden patio was constructed in the south east corner of the property.
“The Ocean House” at 441 Ocean Drive is a five bedroom, six bath, ocean-front home consisting of 3900 square feet with a separate two car garage. The home is situated on Ocean Blvd and features 90 feet of oceanfront. Flagg Coastal Homes designed and built this home for an Arizona based community developer. The home also features a rooftop deck with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, ranging from Rosarito Beach, Mexico to Point Loma. The interiors of this coastal home incorporate extensive beadboard trim, crown molding, and driftwood grey French oak flooring. The home was completed in November of 2012.
The San Diego Historical Society selected 1236 Alameda Blvd., a project completed by Flagship Properties, as its showcase tour house in 2001. During the five-week tour, over 11,000 people visited this showcase house. The original home was designed by renowned architect, William Templeton Johnson in 1916. The home, when it was originally built, was located on the oceanfront in Coronado. Over the years, the lot was subdivided and the front entry of the house was moved to Alameda Blvd.
Flagship acquired this home and renovated it including removing the second story. The kitchen, living room and dining room were all remodeled and a new sun room was added on the main floor. Upstairs a new master bedroom was created with views across Glorietta Bay and a marble master bathroom. An additional bedroom and bath were added which had a separate entrance. However, one of the best features of the house was the addition of the upstairs lounge and porch with gorgeous views of the bay
Located down the street from 739 Tolita, the O’Brien’s acquired a 950 square foot home built in 1916 on very small lot measuring 40X60. Constrained by the small site, Flagship placed the public space (living room, dining room and kitchen) upstairs and surrounded by a wrap-around porch. This solution provided better light and better views for the traditional gathering and entertaining areas within the house.
Charlie Chaplin House
Located on a beautiful triangular corner lot, this four-bedroom cottage was restored to its original English Tudor beauty. Local legend has it that the home was once occupied by Charlie Chaplin. It’s extensive renovation started with completely re-wiring and re-plumbing the house. The kitchen was expanded and updated with new Dacor ovens, built-in refrigerator and cherry cabinets. The Master bedroom now has a walk-in closet and marble bath. An upstairs attic was converted into a kid’s playroom.
