Say hello to the Johnson Residence by Harwell Hamilton Harris.  One of the things that I love about Harris is how varied his home designs were. But one thing that you’ll be sure to find in every project is a careful use of materials and spaces that are elegant and fluid. And this new listing in Beverly Crest is a wonderful example of this.

The current owners have maintained the architectural integrity of the home, while updating the landscape in a very complementary fashion. And if you’re a purist, you’ll be delighted to learn that the redwood siding is untouched, original and never painted. And Harris’ original fixtures and furniture still accent this architectural gem.
