In a high-priced city like Los Angeles, $1.5 million is considered a respectable home buying budget. In denser, urban neighborhoods, this price tag will often afford you a small lot single-family home. Over the Cahuenga Pass, your dollar will stretch further — potentially scoring you a backyard pool. Here we’ve rounded up five new construction single-family home developments around Los Angeles that are priced in the $1.5 million range.

1. The Sevens

Developer: BLDG Partners
Neighborhood: Hancock Park
Priced from: $1,578,000

Showcasing industrial minimal style, The Sevens is a limited collection of three- and four-bedroom homes with two-car garages and roof decks. These newly constructed residences are centrally located at the corner of Wilshire and Rimpau Boulevard, providing quick access to some of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods.

Described as “Los Angeles’ interpretation of the iconic brownstones that line New York’s upper west side,” the homes are characterized by Snaidero kitchens with Viking appliances, high coffered ceilings, oversized, dark-trimmed windows, UV-filtered skylights, wide plank oak flooring and pre-wiring for electric car charging.

2. Eden Terrace

Priced from: $1,570,000

Eden Terrace offers a calming oasis in the heart of Hollywood.

The two-car, direct access garages come complete with epoxy floors, electric car charge ports and added storage.

Located off a quiet side street, this gated community is within walking distance of raved-about restaurants, art galleries, antique stores and gastropubs. Complete your weekly grocery run at the nearby Sprouts or Trader Joe’s, or indulge in a little retail therapy at the nearby La Brea and Melrose shopping districts.

3. Fairfax at Sunset

Sited along Fairfax Avenue, the home also contains a two-car garage, gated entry patio, and a first-floor guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.
