"Mr. Brady Would Like it Here"

Devon Ave. in Pleasant Hill is a mostly residential street. Near Pleasant Hill Road there are condominium complexes on both sides of Pleasant Hill Road. I recently looked at a 2-bedroom unit here whose rent was around $1450/month--about what you would expect for a 2-bedroom in this part of Pleasant Hill.

Along the other end of Devon most of the homes dates from the 1980s and have those high roofs that stretch down from the second to the first floor all in one line (rather than have separate roofs for the separate levels). It was sort of a status symbol in the 80’s that denoted a fairly affluent neighborhood. It is fairly dated now, though it still is usually a sign of a neighborhood that is doing fairly well.

Devon’s location is particularly suburban and has a sort of Brady Bunch feel to it. The schools are strong and crime is low. The supermarket is right at the end of the road and from here you are about 10 minutes from the best parts of Concord and maybe 15 from Walnut Creek.

In other words, this is the sort of place that you want to come live when you have a family and kids. And compared to the Lamorinda area this is much, much more affordable.
