HOUSE OF D. C. NORCROSS LOS ANGELES - ROLAND E. COATE, ARCHITECT


HOUSE OF D. C. NORCROSS  LOS ANGELES
  ROLAND E. COATE, ARCHITECT


Commissioned by petroleum executive David C. and Irene Norcross on a prominent hill overlooking the Bel Air Country Club. The house features many Monterey Revival influences, as well as some intricate ironwork on a double-height balcony which references the architectural styles in New Orleans. The landscape plan was designed by A.E. Hanson.

Site: instead of stepping down the various rooms with the grade, ground was excavated so that the house itself rests practically level.

Roof: rough laid hand-made tile, almost yellow in color.

Walls: covered with Gunite which in turn has been given a hand trowelled coat of stucco, resembling old-fashioned lime plaster in texture and color.

Color scheme: walls are pure white. Some windows are painted antique yellow, others green. Shutters are green; likewise the iron work.


Roots of Style: Colonial Monterey Sets the Stage for Unique Design


The house was torn down during an expansion of the property next door at 671 Siena Way
