Clair Philip Earl, A.I.A.


The Allan F. Daily Residence, 1954, Glendale Register of Historic Resources #63. With its long private drive up to the secluded plateau site, this historic monument may only be seen by the public by invitation, or from a helicopter, yet the owner overlooks all from a glassy residence set within a California garden, and oriented to one of the finest panoramas of the Crescenta Valley and San Gabriel Mountains. Historic not only in structure, but perhaps even more importantly lifestyle: extroverted indoor-outdoor living is invited, with no small tip of the hat to the California car culture. Open plan interior displays restored period built-ins and finishes, and includes eat-in kitchen and covered patio. Mills act tax advantages enhance a great value.
