Richard Fleming, AIA; The Dutton Residence, 1963. A stroll away from the Chevy Chase Country Club, the Dutton Home is one of a group of superb mid-century houses in Glendale designed by Fleming. Completed in 1963, the two-story hillside dwelling cantilevers above and into a grove of oak trees, ceanothus, and native chaparral. From the street, there is little to be seen behind the tall original red brick wall except for some crisply detailed shiplap wood siding, and a somewhat mysterious roofline. Although hidden and private from view, inside the 2,103-square-foot house changes personas, now lively and welcoming, its spaces well designed and logically ordered. The entry at street level opens to the public areas, while the 3 bedrooms and laundry room are on the lower level below, each floor connected to the outdoors with a newer redwood deck and railings wrapping each level. (One bedroom, taking up the entire width of the house, would be perfect as a game room or music studio; currentlyit's a playroom.) Above, the open plan of living, dining, and kitchen with its banks of windows and glass doors look into the trees and the San Rafael hills beyond. Designated as a City of Glendale Historic Resource and awarded a Mills Act contract.
