          Location

          Car: Recommended

          The flat is located within an easy walk to the beautiful University of California campus, but it is also a 1/2 hour drive to San Francisco, 1 hour to wine country or the Marin Headlands. SF has many wonderful amenities, but Berkeley is home to excellent cultural institutions, including Berkeley Repertory Theater, Aurora Theater, Freight and Salvage (for traditional music), Cal Performances and the Berkeley Art Museum, as well as a thriving artisanal craft culture.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: We have lived in Berkeley for twenty four years. Greg works for a social service agency in San Francisco and Susie works in the arts in Berkeley. Greg's mom recently moved out here to live with us and our son and college friend live with us in the house as well. So while the rental unit is very private, it is surrounded by a very friendly, three generation family. There is always someone around who can provide advice about things to see and do, directions to destinations, or thoughts about favorite restaurants and theaters.

          Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
          We love this part of Berkeley. It is close to coffee shops, great food and all the amenities of the City. San Francisco, wine country, the Sierras and the Coast are all within easy reach. We are near all the cultural amenities that make the Bay Area such a treat and yet the house is a quiet, retreat with its own garden, redwood grove and magnificent views of Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Cal Berkeley and San Francisco.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          The apartment is located in one of the most distinguished historic districts in Berkeley. The house, designed by UC Architect Warren Charles Perry, was built for Prof. Edward Tolman in 1924. It is surrounded by homes designed by revered California architect, Bernard Maybeck, and within minutes of the many walkways and paths that make strolling through the Berkeley hills so special. A twenty minute walk uphill will land you in Tilden Regional Park while a ten minute walk downhill will take you to the Berkeley Rose Garden. Another five minutes down and you are in the heart of one of Berkeley's shopping districts with excellent carry-out food as well as world renowned restaurants.
