We have the rare honor of owning a bit of history. The office of Dr. Carlos A. Tamayo is housed in the Patterson/Hartveld Ranch House and is one of several buildings on the 5,000-acre ranch owned by wealthy New York farmer John D. Patterson.

The home itself was built in 1905 for the manager of the Patterson Ranch Company, John Ruope. In 1917, after a subdivision, the home and 153 nearby acres were bought by ranch foreman Peter Hartveld, a native of Holland. The Hartveld family lived there until 1987. A great example of Neoclassic architecture, the house features columns with Corinthian capitals and three-part Palladian windows under broad eaves. The ballast hip roof is repeated in miniature in the smaller dormer window.

This home is one of over a dozen homes that have been restored. While most of the homes are original, a few of the buildings are recreated, and most of these restored buildings are used as offices.

Please feel free to contact us today if you would like to learn more about the history of our office or about the care you can receive from Dr. Carlos A. Tamayo, our friendly dentist in Oxnard, California. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
