The house is so wonderful, and looks so good in this video, that one wonders why it was thought necessary to exaggerate the facts in the course of presenting it.

Hollyhock House was not "the first house (Wright) built in Southern California." And it is debatable that the fireplace bas-relief is "maybe his best two-dimensional work ever. . ."

We are certainly glad to see the house in better shape than it has been in the last 100 years---a statement that I don't believe is an exaggeration ! Thanks for the video.

I guess Santa Barbara/Montecito is now considered Central or Northern California?

As a native Angelino, I've always considered Santa Barbara to be "Central California" ... ;-)

What directional differentiations are there between Los Angeles and San Diego? Is SD the "Deep South"?

Depends who you ask - SD is either our latest suburb, or the Neutral Zone ... :D
