Gallery: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Iconic “La Miniatura” Millard House Hits ...

 
La Miniatura is three stories, measuring 2,400 square feet in total with nearly an acre of gardens. The first floor has the kitchen, dining room and maid’s room, and the dining room opens to a terrace with a reflecting pool that connects the house with the outdoors. The main entrance is located on the second floor along with a guest room and a large two-story living room with a beautiful concrete block fireplace. A balcony at the third story overlooks the living room below, and the third floor also hosts what was Millard’s bedroom and a beautiful outdoor terrace.
