I've always read about this place and being a Frank Lloyd Wright fan we had to go see this beautiful place. It's situated on a hill overlooking the Hollywood sign and Griffith observatory. Peaceful and magical. Too bad you can't tour the house, but seeing the architecture was we'll worth the visit. Catch it just as the sun is setting.

The Hollyhock House is located in Barnsdall Art Park. The Art Gallery behind it is a beautiful walk-thru and should not be missed. (Free to walk thru but fee for classes held there) We attended a Friday Night Fundraiser wine-tasting on the lawn. It is a lovely view from the lawn and though we weren't able to walk thru the house, the art-deco style is great for pictures from its outside as well. The surrounding hills have views of Griffith Observatory, the infamous Hollywood sign and the LA City skyscrapers skyline. The setting sun was spectacular!

This would be a great stop if it is ever finished. The Hollyhock house is interesting and right there, but you cannot get in. It is a shame that it is taking so long to finish. The view is nice and museum on the grounds is nice, but the hours are weird, so check that out before you go.

Super interesting Wright house in the middle of Los Angeles. The house itself is really quite beautiful, even with the renovations going on. The tour guide was excellent, and told us all about "Sugartop" and the odd characters that actually lived there. A must-see for architecture fans, and especially for those of us from the midwest who can compare this Wright with others we have nearby.
