Twins Jonathan and Drew Scott of “Property Brothers” recently took their hit HGTV show to the Bay Area with the aim of purchasing, fixing up and selling two East Bay properties — one in El Sobrante and the other in Pinole.

As first reported by KTVU (Ch.2), the brothers contacted realtor Valerie Crowell of Keller Williams wanting to purchase “junky homes in Oakland.” They were looking for a home in the range of $500,000, which was difficult to find in Oakland, but she did find candidates in Pinole and El Sobrante, according to KTVU.

Both properties were purchased back in October, Crowell told KTVU. Both are now fully renovated and listed at about $1 million each.

On Facebook, Crowell shared both property listings: One of the homes is located at 4241 Santa Rita Road in El Sobrante, while the other is at 2031 Buena Vista Drive in Pinole.

The El Sobrante home, listed at $1.05 million, was purchased and fixed up by Jonathan Scott who “created the quintessential modern hobby farm nestled in the El Sobrante hills,” according to the listing. The home has five bedrooms, an in-home office, large open concept kitchen with a wine fridge and island and more.

The home also features “eco-friendly living walls, gorgeous outdoor decks, low maintenance landscaping and stunning light fixtures to adorn every ceiling,” the listing states.

Meanwhile, Drew Scott remodeled a five-bedroom California modern ranch home in Pinole with a “gorgeous open concept kitchen with a large eat-in island, a modern living area with an “eco-friendly fireplace, built-in shelves, and designer wall colors which carry throughout the house.” That house is listed just under $1 million.

These East Bay fixer uppers will be featured in Season 6 of Brother vs. Brother on May 23.

Crowell told KTVU the brothers are not only “so talented,” but also “some of the sweetest, nicest guys you’ll ever meet.”  Proceeds from the home sale will go to charity, KTVU said.
