Property description

This newly and meticulously built 850 square foot apartment is situated in one of the most exclusive and charming neighborhoods of North Berkeley Hills away from crowds. This lovely flat is ideal for executives,scholars,or vacationers who want to stay in a beautiful large flat and enjoy bay views of San Francisco. One of the most celebrated neighborhoods and world renown, the Gourmet Ghetto is within walking distance. This area is known for the high concentration of fine eating establishments including Chez Panisse by Alice Waters, the Cheese Board Collective, as well as the first ever Peet's Coffee & Tea. Gourmet dining, sidewalk cafes, bakeries, coffee houses, wine shops, boutiques, artisan home decor, galleries, and flower stands all lend the area a European ambiance.

This spacious flat has all the amenities of a small home featuring a new kitchen with granite counter tops, maple cabinets, equipped with new appliances, cookware, dinnerware and linens.

Sit out on your large deck with a morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy the gorgeous views this unit has to offer. Washer and dryer are also set-up for your use.

Across the street and just a couple minutes walk is John Hinkel Park. A historical landmark with magnificent oak groves, picnic areas, hiking and trails. During the summer months opera performances are offered free to the public in the park's amphitheatre.

All utilities are included along with cable TV, water, gas, electricity, telephone, fax and high speed internet. We also have a PC for your use. The flat has good sound insulation as the entire house went through a major remodel recently. There is ample free street parking and public transportation and freeways are close by.
