Berkeley house description

This unit is completely private. Both rooms look out onto a beautiful garden complete with a Koi filled pond and waterfall. There is a lovely area for outdoor eating next to the pond with table and gas grill. There is a removable child safety gate off the back door for safety. The town of Kensington is adjacent to the Berkeley Hills and is a small unincorporated town with its own shops and is quite charming. 3 blocks walk to shops and restaurants. Within 2 miles there are over 100 of the finest restaurants of every ethnic cuisine in the world! The number 7 bus just one block walk from the home takes you all the way to U.C. Berkeley in 15 minutes. One of the most beautiful gardens in California is open to the public and only a 10 minute walk away. Known as the "Blakemont Estate", the President of the entire U.C. system makes this his home. One block walk to a bus that goes directly to U.C. Berkeley. This unit has one master bedroom with its own bathroom, and a second bedroom and bathroom as well. Both rooms come with particularly comfortable, quality beds. This unit comes with a Fridge, Microwave, Toaster, coffee pot and tea pot only. There is an outdoor gas grill, no stove. Access to high speed internet and on Demand Cable TV. 2.5 miles to U.C. Berkeley. This unit has its own private entrance and garden area. There is an $85.00 cleaning fee. We are close to everything, but in a quiet little area that feels a world away from city life. We have great video we can email you the link if you request it.

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Bodhi and Hayley bought this home in 2006 with the hope of growing into the home. It is a large and gracious home and until we do grow into the home we decided it would be fun and logical use of the home and our time to offer it up to travelers.

                      Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
                      We bought in this area because it has everything from world class dining to world class entertainment. It has all the advantages of a big city but has the feel of a small European Town.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We are 25 minutes to San Francisco, 1 mile to a massive park which has endless miles of hiking and biking trails, Views of the Golden Gate and SF, Lakes, Streams, Fishing, golfing, miniature steam train rides for the kids, a petting zoo and a Merry Go Round.
