                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I am a retired public health professional whose favorite hobbies include gardening, traveling, studying Spanish and doing sculpture. My husband is a general contractor who enjoys playing golf in his limited spare time. We've raised 4 children and now spend our time with our loveable Springer Spaniel.

                  Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
                  The consistent feedback we receive from our guests, is that our flat is the nicest one they have stayed at by far. They rave about the decor, the garden and the quiet bucolic location minutes from downtown Berkeley and the University.
