The Dunsmuir House and Gardens, also called the Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate, is a Neoclassical Revival mansion surrounded by 50 acres of landscaped gardens, located at 2960 Peralta Oaks Court in Oakland.

It was bought by the city of Oakland in the 1960ís and has been managed by a nonprofit organization since 1989.

A variety of social and cultural events take place at the Dunsmuir Hellman Estate throughout the year and it is available for private functions.
