Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am originally from England and Ireland and came to the bay area in the 80's. I have lived in many bay area cities, and my favorite places are Marin county and Berkeley. I presently live in Berkley and some of the time in Marin, and work as a real estate broker with Sotheby's International Realty.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This is a beautiful Edwardian home with lots of character and original architectural detail, set among other period homes, in a quiet tree-lined residential neighborhood, yet only a couple of blocks from the hub of the historic Elmwood district, and the Claremont and Rockridge neighborhoods. BART is just 10 blocks away for easy access to San Francisco and beyond.
