What $1 Million Will Get You in L.A. Real Estate
Los Angeles real estate, you. are. pricey. But we love you anyway. So here’s a selection of our favorite million-dollarish homes on the market now, which include stuff like guesthouses, 1920s details, Craftsman architecture, electric car charging stations, golf course views, and yes, even a koi pond. You’ll never believe how wide the range is in these nine different neighborhoods.
Highland Park (3 BR, 3 BA)
Three bedrooms, three baths and 2,600 square feet of living space in a kind of glam Modernist design including a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace and groovy built-in storage. It needs some updating (it’s being sold by the original owner, who bought it in 1965 for $12,000!), but this is a super-jazzy pad.
Palms (3 BR, 1.5 BA)
It’s a three-bedroom house with a “bonus room” (that’s real estate parlance for unattached room in the backyard). But this bonus room has a bathroom, and it is just cozy enough for grandma to actually enjoy staying out there.
North Hollywood (3 BR, 2.5 BA)
This 2,049-square-foot Craftsman has all the bells and whistles a girl could ask for: new marble tile in the bathrooms, a gas fireplace and stainless kitchen appliances. Sure, it’s in the Valley, but a quick hop on the 170 and you’re anywhere, fast.
Venice (2 BR, 2 BA)
Just a few blocks from both the Pacific and Whole Foods, this condo is close to everything you could possibly need on the West side, including the beach. So invite a few friends over, picnic on the beach and then head back to your balcony to enjoy for a while overlooking your new pool.
Eagle Rock (3 BR, 1.5 BA)
Get a load of that massive deck, perfect for entertaining, sunbathing or hosting your own yoga classes. (Did we mention how large it is?) But hey, we know you won’t be spending allll your time out there. The open plan kitchen isn’t too shabby, either.
Brentwood (2 BR, 2.5 BA)
OK yes, you’d be right in the center of chichi Brentwood Village and have a gorgeous marble kitchen at your fingertips…and a fireplace…and a deep soaking tub…and an outdoor patio—but what really sold us was the two parking spaces. #Swoon
Hollywood Hills (2 BR, 2 BA)
A 1920s cottage in the Hollywood Hills with a fireplace and vine-covered privacy walls enclosing the yard? Yes, please.
Hancock Park (2 BA, 3BR)
It’s a top-floor condo with country club golf course views from every window. Done, done and done.
View Park (5 BR, 4 BA)
Can you say National Register of Historic Places? This palm-tree-lined enclave just below Baldwin Hills was recently added to this prestigious list thanks to its high concentration of baller homes built between the 1920s and 1950s. Oh, and it has a backyard koi pond. So L.A.
