Property description

Berkeley is home to one of the world's great universities -- about 1.5 miles away (65 bus stops a few yards away). Also by 65 bus: Math Institute, UC Botanical Garden, Lawrence Berkeley Lab, Lawrence Hall of Science. Great restaurants in the Gourmet Ghetto -- Chez Panisse, etc.. Two major theater companies. Philharmonia Baroque, Cal Performances, museums. 4th St. shopping and restaurants. The #65 bus connects to the Berkeley BART station for service to San Francisco, Oakland, Orinda, SFO, OAK, etc.

The studio has a completely separate and private entrance in an architect-designed home. The space is small so it best suits a single person or a very cozy duo. Ideal for visiting scholars, parents of UC students, visiting grandparents, etc.

Transportation is very easy by bus, car, and foot (some neighbors walk to UC).

Keywords: Studio (as in NYC or Paris hotel room -- not an art studio).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I fell in love with this property on first sight. There are gorgeous views of the SF Bay, gardens abound, deer and turkeys walk down Euclid Ave. It feels like a garden-setting in the middle of a vibrant city. I love to travel but also take in the many wonders of the Bay Area.

Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
The rental came with the property when I purchased it in 1994.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Garden views, birds, a very interesting residential neighborhood with special architecture all around. Views of both the Oakland-Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate -- gorgeous! Enjoy beautiful sunsets over San Francisco Bay. Quiet. A safe part of Berkeley. Great transportation -- far and near.
