                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Berkeley:
                  Residential living with city conveniences. Walk to restaurants, cafes, shops, parks, entertainment, services, businesses, and public transportation. Excellent public transportation. Bus system and BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) provide quick and convenient transportation through-out the San Francisco Bay Area.

Located in the heart of the Elmwood, steps to College Avenue. Turn left onto College and enjoy Elmwood's eclectic collection of restaurants, shops, and services. Turn right onto College and you're a short walk to the Rockridge. A bustling neighborhood full of boutique shops, restaurants, specialty grocers, bakeries, coffee shops both independent and chains such as Noah's Bagels, Peat's Coffee, and Trader Joe's. Short drive to Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto home of Chez Panisse, Lawrence Hall of Science, Tildon Park, Lake Temescal, Jewel Lake, Berkeley Fire Trail (great hiking not for the faint of heart), Berkeley's Art District (downtown), and Fourth Street.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Located in a residential neighborhood that is literally around the corner from the well-known shops and restaurants on College Avenue this property offers the conveniences of city living in a residential setting. Start the morning with a stroll up to Espresso Roma for a fresh coffee and pastry. Next, bike or walk to UC Berkeley in 5 – 15 min, take BART to San Francisco – 2 stations within a 15 min walk, or drive 10 – 15 min to local Pixar, Biotech, and Pharma companies in neighboring Emeryville. Relax with a visit to the local newly remodeled public library, located around the corner. Or walk around the corner in the other direction and take in a movie at the Elmwood Theatre. Maybe you prefer to while away the time window shopping. Feel like getting some exercise? Take a short 15 – 30 minute drive and enjoy a relaxing walk in a variety of scenic Berkeley Hills parks and trails including Tilden Park, Lake Temescal, Jewel Lake, and the fire trails. Feeling hungry? There is no shortage of good restaurants within two blocks; Chinese at King Yen or Shen Hua; Italian at Trattoria La Sicilliana, Indian at House or Curries or vegetarian at La Mediterranee. Want to eat in, take a 10 min walk to Whole Foods and cook up nutritious and healthy meal, just like home.
