A lovely landmarked property in the convenient and desirable Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood of North Berkeley. Just steps to local shops, restaurants, farmer's market and public transportation. The property is 1/2 mile from UC Berkeley, perfect for visitors to the University. The original architectural details, the lush garden, and the location make this an ideal home away from home. Our property contains our landmarked Victorian home and three stand-alone cottages. We have three units currently available.
We have two suitcase-ready, fully furnished stand-alone cottages. The cottages are part of the historical landmark and were built in the 1920s. There is a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a sweet living room. The bathroom is very small but has a tub. There is a long narrow kitchen that is stocked with all kitchen basics (dishes, flatware, pots, etc). It has a breakfast table with room for two - there is another small table in the living room that can also be used for dining. The middle cottage has its own small patio in addition to the shared outdoor space on the property.
We also have a suitcase-ready, fully furnished inlaw unit. The inlaw unit is in the back of the main house. The house is a historical landmark, built in 1885, but the inlaw is a new renovation from the late 90s and quite modern. The bedroom and living room are carpeted. The bedroom has a queen bed and the living room has a queen futon couch that can covert to a second bed. The bathroom is large with a beautiful tile shower (no tub). The kitchen is small but stocked with all kitchen basics (dishes, flatware, pots, etc). It has a small breakfast table with room for two. The unit is bright and sunny and has a 'peek-a-boo' view of the bay. It has a private entrance and a small outdoor deck.
Our rates includes all utilities (gas, electric, water, garbage, wireless internet) and full furnishings (all furniture, sheets, towels, pots, pans, etc.) All units have access to (coin-operated) laundry and shared outdoor space on the property. A car is not necessary as we are in walking distance to (shopping, UC Berkeley, farmer's market, BART). Parking is street parking - folks who do want a car usually park ~3 blocks away, where there are no permits required.
We can occasionally accommodate groups that would like to rent multiple units.

We are in the fabulous North Berkeley neighborhood referred to as the 'Gourmet Ghetto'. If you walk west on Rose Street to Shattuck, you will find blocks of wonderful restaurants and shops. You can buy artisanal cheeses at the Cheeseboard, reserve a table at the world renowned Chez Panisse, sample the excellent offerings at Taste of the Himalaya and Cha-Am. Thursday afternoons from 3pm-7pm is our all-organic farmer's market just a few blocks away on Rose and Shattuck. The University is due south on Spruce 1/2 mile. If you would like recommendations for local activities and attractions, we are happy to help!
