What Houzz contributors are saying:

The wood millwork in the previous photo separates the open living space from a sleeping area that faces north. While the bed indicates that Johnson would sleep there on occasion (he was moved to and died in this bed in 2005), it's easy to see how difficult it would be to sleep there regularly. Privacy could be accomplished only through the sliding screens (visible in a couple previous photos), and it would be difficult to sleep well past dawn, hardly ideal after a night of one of Johnson and Whitney's famous parties.
The beauty of this home is the simple unobstructed connection to the surrounding environment and the continual awareness of nature's many moods, which can be experienced from the interior.
