1140 Coronado Avenue

SeaStar was purposely designed and built by the owners of Flagship Properties for their own home. The original single-story ranch house located on the site enjoyed some zoning advantages that the OBrien’s were able to capitalize upon. The original single-story house was therefore lifted in the air, and a new first story was constructed underneath. The finished house consists of 6-bedrooms and 5-baths. It features a reverse floor plan (kitchen/family/dining upstairs) with spectacular Pacific Ocean Views. It is the 3rd of 7 houses that Flagg and Flagship have designed and built on Sunset Park.

Loma Lane

The Loma Lane Cottage was designed by renowned architect, Irving Gill and built in 1896. Flagg restored the house in 2006 for Milt and Cindi McColl of Los Altos Hills. Milt is Carrie OBrien’s brother and he played 7 years for the San Francisco 49ers before obtaining his medical degree at Stanford. The Loma Cottage is redwood board and batten construction with douglas fir flooring. It is historically designated by the City of Coronado.

Americas Cup

The New Zealand America’s Cup skipper, Sir Russell Coutts, purchased an older nondescript house located across from the Coronado Golf Course after he won The Cup for New Zealand in 1992. After holding it for 17 years as a rental, he contacted John OBrien to design and build a new home on the site in 2009. The new house features a reverse floor plan, thus taking advantage of the expansive views of the golf course and Coronado Bridge. Since the home will be used as a vacation home for the Coutts family, Flagg utilized a number of minimal maintenance exterior cladding and siding materials to withstand the sun and salt-laden air.

Hawaii Calls

First Street Night Shot

The British family of Arthur and Blanche Simpson built the Historic Hawaiian House in 1901, using architect William Sterling Hebbard. The beaches of the bay and the Spanish Bight originally surrounded this house along with two smaller plantation style buildings. Hawaiian Plantation architecture evolved from housing needed for the laborers of Hawaii’s thriving sugar industry that started in 1893. The architectural profile features a hip roof with vertical board and batten redwood siding, and two large lanais. Giant Australian tree ferns frame the front lanai, with two Torii gates and bamboo fencing surrounding the side and back yards. The interior first floor is also redwood and the second floor walls are plank sided with a repeating “pickwick” profile. Flagship restored the house and added the second floor in 2008 and sold the completed home in 2010.
