Like Dilbeck and Dines & Kraft, Clifford Doris Hutsell is a name you’ll reconize if you’re into local architecture. Hutsell built dozens of homes in Lakewood in the 1920s-‘40s, including his own private residence at 7035 Lakewood Boulevard. It cost him $10,000 in 1930, making it one of the most expensive homes in the neighborhood at the time, comparable with the Grand Dames on Swiss Avenue. Included in the Spanish Colonial design was this richly hued stained-glass window. When current owner Christy Fagin acquired the property, she set out to restore Hutsell’s original vision, ensuring the colorful parabolic window remained a centerpiece of the house, which became a historic landmark in 2005.
