About the Property
Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Our lovely flat is located high atop a North Berkeley hillside, with quiet country-style living and views of Berkeley's magical hills as well as San Francisco Bay. Surrounded by lush gardens, rolling hills, tree tops, and panoramic vistas, you can experience the very best of California's Mediterranean climate.
The flat is furnished with comfort and quality in mind with all linens, towels and basics for your stay. Off the tiled entry, the richly designed living room looks out through double wooden sliding doors onto the west balcony. The living room opens into a full dining room, furnished in Asian antiques and accommodating a bar connecting the full kitchen, dining room and living room so you can enjoy rich tree-top views from any room. The kitchen is finished in beautiful tile, granite, hardwood cabinets, copper light fixtures and a complete array of culinary supplies for cooking enthusiasts. All appliances are stainless steel, reflecting an elegant European style mixed with Northern Californian tranquility and tradition. Off the dining room there is a lovely, sunny eating area, facing the southeast with a gorgeous view of the University of California and the Berkeley hills. The flat has 2 full baths, both with European porcelain, tile, stainless and glass fixtures. There is a master bedroom with a queen size Japanese platform bed, a second bedroom with a full-size futon, and a study with a beautiful and extremely comfortable full-size sofa-bed-- sleeping 4 very comfortably. The flat comes with a complete stereo system, wall mounted Bose speakers, 3 flat screen HDTVs, DVD/CD players, alarm clocks, wireless Internet access, and full phone service. Off the east utility room with gorgeous views, you have the east redwood deck with bistro seating and direct sunlight all day long. There are, indeed, too many amenities to name.
Our flat in North Berkeley is centrally located for easy day trips to San Francisco, the wine country, Pt. Reyes National Seashore and all other Northern California attractions. We take great pride in providing the highest level of hospitality and service. We look forward to meeting you!

About the owner: Our beautiful duplex home has been Suzy's home her whole life, as her family moved here in 1950. Suzy has been a life-long gardener here in Berkeley and Arun has divided his time between a teaching career at UC Berkeley and as a fashion event photographer for Getty Images.
Why the Owner Chose Downtown Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA:
Sierra Street is a special place. All our visitors have recognized its unique hilltop beauty and serenity, a neighborhood rich in families and Berkeley tradition, feeling country-like, but within walking distance of all that you will ever need or want to do during your stay.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Having rebuilt this magical home from the ground up, it has given us the chance to create a once in a lifetime experience, which we feel every day that we are here. Sunrises over the hills, a sky of orange whispers, and sunsets over the Golden Gate Bridge, casting a warm and comforting glow upon us, birds in our trees, flowers in our garden, the sense that beauty here is timeless, as we begin to realize that we are not. Sierra Street is the perfect Bay Area getaway--whether you are coming simply to vacation, for a wedding, for your family member at Berkeley, for a conference, or for the wine country, you will find Sierra Street to be a perfect choice among many. We welcome you to see for yourself.
