About the Property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Studio provides a peaceful retreat within walking distance of the Gourmet Ghetto, Chez Panisse cafe and restaurant, the Cheese Board (best cheese shop on the west coast!). The UC Berkeley campus and North Berkeley BART station are less than a mile away. Considered one of the best neighborhoods in North Berkeley! Our Farmers market is every Thursday and only 3 blocks away.

From the queen-size bed there are views of your private deck and the surrounding garden through the French doors. You can even sleep with the door open if cool night breezes appeal to you.

Every Convenience: Wi-fi with a secured network throughout. Cutting-edge technology with in-floor radiant heat. Quiet heat, no dust, no filters, just warm floors.

Private covered deck through rear doors. The surrounding garden was featured in the Secret Gardens of the East Bay and received praise from designers throughout the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I have owned the property since 1978 and have managed other properties throughout Berkeley. I take pride in my house and grounds. I maintain my property with an eye towards high standards in cleanliness and also for your privacy and comfort. Having lived here so long, I am very familiar with the ins and outs of the area, what's happening, and can answer any questions you have about the neighborhood. I look forward to meeting you. Generally, I respond to potential guests within a few hours if not sooner.

Why the Owner Chose North Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA:
The studio is ideally located in a quiet residential neighborhood close to all shopping and a short walk to UC Berkeley and our train; BART. On Thursday's there's a farmers' market 3 blocks away providing an abundance of fruits and vegetables along with homemade items such as jams, jellies and local honey.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Our private garden supplies guests with all organic citrus (Meyer lemons, limes and our new addition of an orange tree). Also, figs, persimmons and lemon verbena for a superb herbal tea!
