An Irvine-based builder is bringing 23 townhomes to Baldwin Park with prices starting at $459,900.

Brandywine Homes has begun selling Palmera, built on 1.5 acres at 14799 W. Badillo St. near the Baldwin Park Metro station and Baldwin Park High School.

The townhomes, with 1,242 to 1,737 square feet of living space offer up to four bedrooms and four bathrooms and range in price from $459,990 to $509,990. Brandywine says that’s the lowest-cost new construction residences in the area.

“As demand continues to outstrip housing supply in the San Gabriel Valley, this beautiful, family-friendly community with home prices below the median in California couldn’t be opening at a better time,” said Dave Barisic of Brandywine.

Local house hunters have the largest number of options in years, as supplies of homes for sale — new and existing — soared in 2018. Many Southern California developers, as a result, have been cutting new-home prices.

Brandywine, a specialist in smaller “in-fill” projects in established communities, is coming off a record-setting 2018 in which is sold 167 homes, up 50 percent-plus vs. 2017.

Last year Brandywine opened three new-home communities: Newbury (15 estate homes in Yorba Linda); Corsica (17 townhomes in Buena Park); and Bradbury (45 detached homes in La Puente).
