JOHNSON FAMILY OWNERS
Our story is one of passion for an extraordinary country and its people; a place of exquisite beauty that enters into one’s soul. South Africa captivated Breese during his first visit in 1985. Restoring this property has been realizing a dream and is part of our lives’ work. Our mission on Mosaic is one of renewal and restoration. Renewal for those who stay here… Restoration of hope and livelihoods in the local community through job creation and education… Restoration of the eco-system in our little corner of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
Breese is a radiologist in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA. Kathryn is a commercial interior designer and has worked with Cape architect, Gregg Goddard, designing the new and renovated buildings on Mosaic. Our sons, Will and Matt, devote time for outreach work in the disadvantaged community in Stanford and other African countries. As a Global Studies university graduate, Will spent a year in Stellenbosch working on a sustainable development project for the Ivory Coast and is now working back in his hometown of Knoxville. Matt is at the University of Tennessee where he is studying Agricultural Economics and plays rugby. He also played for the USA Under 20 Men’s Teams. They both have a special place in their hearts for South African rugby!
