Why Northwest Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA:
I purchased this property in the 1970's from the italian family who built and owned it. I love the colorful history of this neighborhood, the proximity to wonderful Bay Area places, and the convenient walkability!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
My home and properties reflect my life's work as an artist. I have loved living in my Berkeley neighborhood for the past 40 years. I am pleased to have my daughter's family in Kiwi Cottage during the school year, and to share it with world travelers during the summer!
