Regarding Holmes House. Architect Whitney R. Smith contributed to the design and development of Modern architecture in Southern California. The houses that he designed featured minimal interior walls to allow flexibility and spaciousness, indoor/outdoor connection, the reversal of the traditional plan with the living room at the rear, and integration of nature.

The County of Los Angeles began designating Historic Landmarks in 2016. No official markers were placed until the owner of Holmes House asked for a plaque.
The home is private, not open to the public.
