Home: The pond house

by: Loren Mayo Black Tie Editor

Nora and Billy Johnson have always believed in naming their homes. They call their current residence on South Lake Shore Drive the “Pond House,” because of the “pond” (lake) in the backyard. You wouldn’t know it unless you’d toured the inside of the Pond House, but there’s also a koi pond indoors, just past the kitchen.

“Our cottage in Michigan is called ‘The Roost’ because it’s where all the bats used to roost before we bought it,” says Nora Johnson. “It’s a fun and easy way to refer to your house, and it gives it an identity.”
