The J.C. and Gertrude White Coppage Residence, 1927. Fondly named ‘La Casa Gaviota’ after the soaring gulls, this classic Spanish Colonial Revival Residence retains its historic character, as well as a commanding bird’s eye view of the Town and Avalon harbor. An iconic Island landmark, this exclusive residence, designed for grand entertaining, is one of a handful of architectural treasures clearly visible from well offshore. The property is conveniently located at the corner of Maiden Lane and Crescent Avenue, and is just a short walk to ocean front shops, hotels, and the famed Casino. Over 4000 feet of carefully proportioned living space features 7 Bedrooms, two of which are suites, butler’s pantry, formal dining room, office, hardwood floors, and an outdoor loggia.
