A striking example of published architect Roy S. Johnson. This homes design reflects Johnson’s apprenticeship with Edward Durell Stone while attention to aesthetic imbues Frank LLoyd Wright’s spirit. Experience indoor/outdoor living almost immediately through the front door drawing your eye into the striking interior seemingly set in the outdoors with vistas outside through the rear wall of glass. Step inside and note the entryway framework is duplicated as an architectural wall screen separating the open foyer and living room; just one of many original details. Natural light fills the homes social spaces. The main level bedrooms accented by clerestory windows gives tree top visuals. Don’t forget the lower-level walkout as optional 4th bedroom. Modern updates incorporated by present owner are delightful, especially the white kitchen and renovated baths. A welcoming seasonal room can be enjoyed off season with its unobstructed views of back yard nature. A wonderful retreat. Home as art.
