Welcome to Westbrae, one of Berkeley’s most coveted and vibrant neighborhoods. 1240 Evelyn Avenue is a beautiful property with flexible living options and opportunities! Two homes on one lot, both permitted and a studio in the front house as well! The stunning two bedroom, two bath main home features two new bathrooms, wide-plank hardwood floors in the living areas, an updated kitchen with quartz countertops, subway tile backsplash, and Bosch dishwasher, dual pane windows, tons of storage and a lavish master suite.

The playroom/studio has its own entrance and we believe it was once an upholstery shop, a bit of Berkeley’s history!

The super cute 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is also permitted and offers a charming deck and even air conditioning! It does not have a full kitchen (no oven or stove) and is set up as an in-law or possible Airbnb.

The gardens are meticulously kept and very beautiful. You will enjoy relaxing in this exotic oasis equipped with lovely walkways, and gorgeous, drought tolerant landscaping.

With a Walk Score of 88 and a Bike Score of 98, this community offers so many wonderful amenities. You are close to Whole Foods Market, Philz Coffee, Westbrae Biergarten, Monterey Market, Fieldwork Brewing and so much more!


Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway. Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby. Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
