About Meredith Maran

I'm a writer of books, book reviews, and magazine stories. I moved to LA from San Francisco in 2012; I'm madly in love with this city and eager to share my insider tips with my guests.

Meredith Maran purchased this house in 2013

Why Meredith Maran chose Los Angeles area

The Maltman Bungalow Court is an historic LA landmark, built as studio housing in the 1920s and restored in 2007. Olivia de Havilland slept here!

Located at the dead end of a private street, Casa Bungalita offers all the benefits of a quiet, serene, green retreat plus the benefits of proximity to Hollywood (10 minutes), Downtown LA (10 minutes), beaches (30 minutes). Best of all possible worlds!
