THE GAMBLE-ESTUDILLO HOLMES HISTORIC HOME IN RIVERSIDE, CALFORNIA
The Gamble-Estudillo Homes dwelling in Riverside was built in 1911. This stately California bungalow home has been the residence of Ms. Patricia and Judge Dallas Holmes since 1971. The Holmes are supporters of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.
"Situated on a large, triangular lot and framed by lovely old trees, this house is a true California bungalow. With its broad, horizontal lines, its wide, stone-pillared porches, and its casement windows, the Gamble-Estudillo house reflects the style of architects Maybeck and Green brothers." (Klotz - Hall).
In 1918 this magnificent home was sold Miguel Estudillo, an attorney and member of the California State Legislature. "Estudillo was an important attorney form an early California family. His great grandfather Jose Marie Estudillo came to San Diego in 1769, soon after the San Diego de Alcala Mission was founded. His mother was Adelaide, daughter of Don Louis Rubidoux, whose ranch in Jurupa was established in 1844.
The honorable Dallas Holmes is a judge of the Superior Court for Riverside County.
