Tucked amongst the bungalows and small apartment buildings of West Hollywood is Schindler House, reportedly the first modern house in California. If you manage your expectations, you will enjoy the experience of visiting this quiet escape in LA. It is a small property and rooms are very sparsely furnished.

Be careful of their home tours. You pay a pretty stiff fee for a home tour that on the website says begins at 11am and will take about 3.5 hours.

We were very excited to visit Schindler House after seeing the website. We're a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and modern architecture and what a cool thing to see, one of the most modern, historic homes in the city. At $7 per person, we were expecting a lot.
