929 1st Street, Coronado, 92118

Current Owner: Rosemary Eichenfield

Beds: 4

Baths: 6

List Price: $8,400,000

A San Diego bayfront home “on Coronado’s prestigious First Street and facing San Diego’s stunning skyline and twinkling lights” has listing materials promising that prospective buyers “will delight in the Big Bay’s year round activities.”

The “secluded mini-resort style estate” at 929 1st Street “is the consummate private retreat as well as the perfect background for entertaining family and friends.”

The two-story home, built in 2003, includes four bedrooms and six baths spread across just over 4900 square feet of living space. The main level “incorporates custom full ridge line skylights in each of its three bays,” with large swaths of glass ceiling in most of the living area. Sales literature lapses into near mysticism as it describes the setup as “alluding to an ever expanding extension of space to sky.”

Other features include limestone flooring that “embellishes the entry, interiors and terraces melding with the shoreline beyond,” marble fireplaces, formal dining for ten, chef’s kitchen with built-in refrigerator and separate wine chiller, and master suite with private sitting and dressing areas. “The ultimate in guest accommodations” features a separately accessed space with kitchenette, media room, sauna, and two en-suite bedrooms plus office.

Elsewhere, “the ultimate in automobile, golf cart, and bicycle accommodations” are found in a garage with space for six or more vehicles.

Fold-away doors lead to a bayfront outdoor living space “incorporating several entertaining areas including a sit-down bar, in-ground spa, fire ring, lounge area, barbecue, and expansive dining,” all directly adjacent to public shoreline and enjoying a view of downtown’s Marina District across the bay.

“The sublime proportions and enviable spatial relationships make it easy to appreciate how well this home lives,” the listing agent promises.

Public records indicate the residence is the second home of Rosemary Eichenfield, whose primary residence is in Paradise Valley, Arizona, a tony enclave of Phoenix. Her husband Samuel was at one time chief executive of commercial finance firm Finova, and the pair operated a nonprofit for some time in retirement.

The Eichenfields purchased the land where the home was built for $1.9 million in 2000 from William McColl, a San Diego native who played for the Chicago Bears in the 1950s before becoming a surgeon and eventually mounting three unsuccessful U.S. Congress campaigns as a Republican in both the Los Angeles and San Diego regions in the 1970s and 1980s.

The 1st Street estate was listed for the first time since the current home was constructed in late March and carries an asking price of $8.4 million that remains unchanged to date.
