#11 J. Harold and Helen Peterson, 619 Ocean Blvd. 1929 Requa and Jackson This is another Requa project where the client wanted a New England Colonial living room and dining room. The library, done in knotty pine, is a small, intimate room off the entry hall. In addition to the usual first floor rooms, there were also two servants’ rooms and a guest room. The second floor had three bedrooms with individual baths and dressing rooms. The three-car garage had the chauffeur’s quarters above. The house wraps around a spacious grass patio with a fountain centered at the four intersecting brick walks. Against the north wall was a built-in garden bench with an overhead iron lamp. The back of the bench is a pastel-hued stucco aerial map of the Pt. Loma/Coronado harbor area. The map and lamp remain, but the bench is gone. Against the east property line wall is a Persian water rug style fountain. The water ran down the entire face of the serrated tile design, into the basin, and along an open trough in the brick wall down to the central patio fountain. The wall panel remains but the basin and brick wall are gone, replaced by a swimming pool. Another modern feature, seen from the street, is the square tower of an elevator shaft.
