Car: Not Necessary

The apartment is located one block from the university of California. It is a great location for visiting faculty, alumni or family of students. The neighborhood is filled with lively coffeehouses and restaurants, including the famous Chez Panisse. You can easily walk to shop for groceries at large, well stocked markets or specialty shops like the cheese board or the local butcher.

Exploring beyond the neighbor is easy too. The Bart (bay area rapid transit) station is 7 blocks away, ac transit stops with express bus service to San Francisco and the greater bay area are 1 block away. If you need a car, zip cars and city share cars can be picked up 2 blocks away or you can rent a car at enterprise rentals for a day of exploring in the wine country or other bay area sites just 2 blocks away. The apartment and neighbor is very family friendly with parks and playgrounds a stroll away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1959

About the owner: Grawin House has been in our family for over fifty years. It was my home as a child. We returned to Berkeley after our children were grown and made Grawin House a family compound for three generations of our family. Now that the younger generation has moved into their own homes, we have lovely apartments to share with others.

Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
The building is beautifully maintained and cared for. It is has a wonderful history and is in a great location.Here is a comment from our last guest: My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time living at 1660 Oxford Street. From the moment we arrived we felt really at home – the apartment is generously proportioned, well furnished and has a nice homely feel. Being on the ground floor and one level was perfect for our young son, as was access to the tranquil courtyard off the dining room. The owners were extremely welcoming and attentive hosts, though the apartment was in such good order that we did not really need to call on them at all. As a visitor to UC Berkeley the location was ideal, allowing me to walk to and from work each day – a walk that will live with me for a long time for its wonderful views of the bay. Not only that, but you’re right on the doorstep of Berkeley’s ‘gourmet ghetto’ and its wealth of restaurants, cafes and shops. Such a good selection, in fact, that we had no need to use a car for the duration of our trip. I highly recommend this apartment – an ideal base for visitors to Berkeley and the surrounding area.
