Berkeley studio description

A queen size bed with a brand new Comfort Foam Mattress beckons you in this totally new, spacious ground floor studio apartment in an architect designed home. The large, fully carpeted bedroom/sitting room, with a pleasant eating space, offers views of the bay. There is a walk in closet, and a dresser for your belongings.

The unit has a separate entrance with off street parking and you can relax on the small porch with your evening wine while enjoying the sunset over San Francisco Bay.

A brand new kitchen includes a refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, smooth top cooktop, and microwave/convection oven. The bathroom features a large tiled shower with non- stop hot water and sink.

The location is amazing. A 25 minute walk down the hill puts you at the north entrance of the UC Berkeley campus, The #65 bus, which stops across the street, connects to the Berkeley BART station for service to San Francisco, Oakland, Orinda, SFO, OAK, or carries you up the hill to the Lawrence Hall of Science

By auto, it is a 10 minute drive to downtown Berkeley, or 20 minutes into SF.

This is a perfect short-term rental for a visiting professor, a couple or a small family that wants to experience all that the Bay Area has to offer.

What can I say about Berkeley? It is home to one of the world's great universities and 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 Shop. Sidewalk cafes, bakeries, coffee houses, wine shops, boutiques, artisan home decor, and flower stands all lend the area a European ambiance. Fourth street has fine shopping in a variety of stores.

Berkeley also features two major theater companies as well as numerous small theater groups, symphonic and chamber orchestras, Cal Performances, several movie houses, and museums.

Come and enjoy!!

                          About the owner: East - West, Berkeley is Best The east coast owner moved west 5 years ago, renovated her aunt’s house in Berkeley and has truly fallen in love with her home and all that Berkeley has to offer. A retired Landscape Architect, I love to garden and am currently trying my hand at watercolor and pastel portraits. I love to travel but always love coming home to Berkeley.

                          Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
                          There is so much to do in this area!! I love the theater, hike frequently in many of the nearby parks, and take classes at the university whenever possible.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                          Location, location, location! The public transportation is convenient, and UC Berkeley is a 25 minute walk down the hill.
