The Dutton was drawn by hand using draft paper and a scale ruler. Its design was inspired by visiting the Southwest, where indoor-outdoor living and living spaces are fundamental, and residences in which long-term guests have privacy and feel included in home life are essential.

The Dutton - Casita
The Dutton - Casita

This design features an open-air private courtyard off the main entrance with access to a casita or “small house” that offers hidden-door access from inside the home. This secluded area is perfect for guests to enjoy their own private outdoor living space when visiting.



Some of the essential aspects of this home are its indoor-outdoor living areas. When you first enter, you’ll see through the house’s interior into the outdoor living area through moveable glass walls that open to create one large living space. It’s the perfect combination for entertaining or creating a relaxing indoor-outdoor living experience anytime.

The Dutton showcases an artisan-crafted metal range hood commissioned to tie into the home’s interior design, custom-designed cabinetry to ensure everything is in its perfect place, and a 14-foot island custom grafted from two pieces into one with deft craftsmanship.

Window seats create ambiance and warmth in this modern rustic design, adding a romantic charm to the living area. 

Painted porcelain vertical subway tiles provide a brilliant focal point for this owner’s suite bathroom. 

A covered outdoor living area with a gas stone fireplace and an outdoor kitchen area provides year-round enjoyment and a seamless transition between living spaces.
