Norma Place Bungalows

Along this block note the variety of “decorator-ized” bungalows and landscaping. This unimposing neighborhood, close to Hollywood and Beverly Hills, has long attracted highly creative people-writers, artists, actors, musicians, and designers. Writer Dorothy Parker lived in the bungalow at 8983 Norma Place for over twenty years.


Continue east on Norma Place. Cross Lloyd Place and stop at the Colonial House at 8954 Norma Place.

One of the Norma Triangle’s more unusual houses is at 8952-56 Norma Place, a two-story COLONIAL REVIVAL HOUSE built in 1921. Reportedly silent screen star Norma Talmadge once used the house for dressing rooms when she was filming on location nearby. Another legend claims that the front porch was originally built as part of the set from Victor Fleming’s Gone with the Wind.


Continue to end of Norma Place. Turn right on Hilldale Avenue, walk one block, turn right on Keith Avenue, walk one block, turn left Robertson Boulevard and walk 100 feet to 812 Robertson Boulevard.
