I find great pleasure and satisfaction in viewing houses that are organically designed and decorated. Frank Lloyd Wright's "Falling Water" has to be my number 1 and now I am feeling tempted to call Mackintosh's "Hill House" my number 2. Consider just the main staircase; it is a masterpiece.

Hill House is amazingly well preserved and the interior is beautiful. A must for Rennie Mackintosh enthusiasts. It is however a little expensive.

What a wonderful house. There's a lot of Frank Lloyd Wright similarities in this Macintosh design with the F L Wright design of the same era. Lovely shop, coffee shop, and the home is superb!

Well worth going to see , but I felt the £10 entry was a bit steep. Lovely little tea room, prices average, great selection of scones , cakes etc

To understand the wide-range of talent possessed by Charles Rennie Macintosh, it is absolutely vital to visit this magnificent and perfectly preserved home designed by the Glasgow master. EVERYTHING, virtually, within the home also was designed by him and his wife.
