Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2077
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-128).
Building/structure dates: 1904 initial construction
Significance: The Gates house is San Jose's only example of the work of the noted California architect, Bernard Maybeck. The chalet form with its historical detailing and the open plan, featuring an oversized fireplace and dramatic staircase, are characteristic of Maybeck's highly original residential work; but the house conforms in large part to its conventional turn-of-the-century upper middle-class setting as well. It was built in 1904 for physician Howard B. Gates.
