About 2900 Nichols Street

One of Point Loma’s most iconic waterfront homes, the Bowman-Cotton house at 2900 Nichols epitomizes Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in San Diego, with a subtle, contemporary touch inside. From the expansive front lawn to the interior courtyard, the home is elegantly positioned on over one-third of an acre with incredible views overlooking the yacht basin to Downtown, the San Diego Bay and beyond. The home offers two floors of gracious living, a separate guest house, private office, lap pool, spa, game room, garage and beach house. The functionality of a large estate combines effortlessly with the lifestyle convenience of private, direct access to the white sand beaches of coveted La Playa. Originally designed in 1929 by Master Architect Richard S. Requa, this exclusive estate has a lineage of famous owners and enjoys dramatically reduced property taxes as Mills Act Historic Site #466. The historically sensitive remodel was completed by Ione Stiegler, FAIA, of IS Architecture. Enter through the gates of this historic property into the lush courtyard and be transported to another time. The mahogany front door is highlighted by perfect landscaping. Open the front door and reveal stunning views to the waterfront just past the original, delicate wrought iron balustrade on the main staircase. The entry is flanked by arched doorways into the spacious living room on one side and the formal dining room on the other, each with spectacular views. Not to be missed is the gourmet eat-in kitchen featuring marble counters, Viking appliances, beautiful stone flooring, a walk-in pantry, hand-carved arched mahogany pocket doors to the dining room and direct access to the family room. The grand master suite features picture perfect views, two balconies and a spacious den with floor to ceiling view window, built-ins, as well as two custom walk-in closets. The impeccable master bath enjoys a steam shower and separate water closet. Each of the other second floor bedrooms are en suite, one with an over-sized balcony overlooking the courtyard, the other with gorgeous water and city views. Other features include the peaceful guest cottage, spacious game room and private entry office with fireplace and French doors to the expansive view patio as well as a sizable finished basement. This home’s carefully balanced historic façade makes it a prized, historical trophy house with all the modern comforts every buyer will appreciate. An ideal primary or secondary residence and a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to own a significant part of San Diego’s history. Welcome to the Bowman-Cotton House!
