  • Nice to have a house designed by two famous architects when money is no object. We joined a tour of the Miller house and got to see how the top 0.01 percent lived. Their life style was reflected in the design and decor of the house. The colorful fabrics and carpets were delightful. The underlying mid century modern design was amazing. Definitely worth the visit.
  • In all honesty it is expensive. 25 dollars per person. The tour guide was very nice. The house is okay. But we are spoiled because we stayed at his Grandfather's mansion and this home is so spectacular in comparison
