Bella Vista

Bella Vista is a spectacular new home on a double lot in Coronado, fronting San Diego bay. Architect Dorothy Howard teamed up with Lorton Mitchell Custom Homes to create one of the finest homes in Coronado. All the stops have been removed to build this 10,000 square foot Spanish home. Most rooms in the residence have “beautiful views” of the San Diego bay and skyline. Features include 3 guest wings, a two room gourmet kitchen, gym, office, library, media room, pool, spa, multicar garage and elevator.


The entire staff of Lorton Mitchell Custom Homes, Inc. is extremely proud of the Gold LEED rating Bella Vista earned. This is the first gold Leed project in Coronado.


TheU.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED is a voluntary program designed to recognize and reward the nation’s top green builders in terms of environmentally sound construction. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.


Initially, LEED focused on commercial buildings. In 2006, the USGBC introduced a pilot version of LEED for Homes. A LEED certified home offers significant benefits to its owners, including:

  • Energy Savings (~30-70%)
  • Water Savings (~40%)
  • Improved Health: indoor air quality, safety, and thermal comfort
  • Improved Durability and Value
  • Homeowner Education
  • Environmentally Responsible


LEED certification gives homeowners confidence that their home is durable, healthy, and environmentally friendly
