J.J. Mulvihill Residence built in 1949 by architect Harwell Hamilton Harris

The J.J. Mulvihill Residence was built in 1949 by architect Harwell Hamilton Harris (a Richard Neutra apprentice.) Harris developed his own architectural style that “is characterized by a careful use of materials and clean, fluid spaces.” Unlike the three-storied Mary and Lee Blair Residence and Studio, Harris designed that mimics the levels of the hillside it rests on, the Mulvihill residence juts up and across in a powerful horizontal form against its mountainous backdrop. The 2,000-square-foot, three-level home celebrates Harris’ multivalent approach to architecture and features a prow of glass, grey-green painted redwood, and red brick.

Built in 1986, the two-story John T. Lyle design studio is located off to the side. At first glance the studio’s sharp roof angles and seemingly random custom windows of all shapes and sizes appears to clash with Harris’ calm, boxy volume above but yet it somehow blends with Harris’s design and the surrounding landscape.

Asking price is $1.590M.
