About Jennifer Osborne

We purchased the building and remodeled it for ourselves. We lived there for 7 years and now we are renting it. So we know the area well.

Jennifer Osborne purchased this condo in 1999

Why Jennifer Osborne chose San Francisco Bay Area

This is a unique property in that it is a condo but it feels like a detached house because of the scale of the rooms.

What makes this condo unique

The movie room is a unique feature of the unit and the gourmet kitchen is fabulous. As is a steam shower in the master bedroom.


Quiet setting close to activities but set away from traffic and noise

Homey with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The view is phenomenal of the Bay. The deck runs the entire length of the condo and we loved sitting out there when the weather was nice. The kitchen is big with a Viking stove/oven, big KitchenAid fridge and a Bosch dishwasher, so we were able to make a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. There is a lot of room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a media room with a projector/screen for watching movies. Be aware that the glass doors lock by pulling up on the handles. We didn't know that and spent one night with the doors slamming in the wind. The only issue for us was the cleanliness when we first got there. There was hair on the bathroom floors, some mold in the shower and a lot of heavy dust on the wall art. Once I cleaned the floors, I felt better. It is very close to Memorial Stadium which was a real plus for us since we went to two football games. The roads getting to the condo reminded us of Europe. They are single lane and narrow but the view tells the story.

Perfect Game Day House!

  • 5 of 5

The two best things about this condo were:

1) It took us 6 minutes to walk to the game. It is really much closer than it appears on a map because there are stairs to the stadium that cut off one of the switchbacks.

2) The views were really top notch. My daughter and some friends came up from campus for a pasta dinner and it was the perfect place to hang out on the deck and watch the sunset before the game!

Thanks for providing this great place that made an amazing weekend!

best place to stay in the East Bay - Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The view is magnificent! especially in the fall when fog is not an issue. Accommodated 3 couples and a couple of kids with comfort and privacy. Baths were magnificent. We were in the area for a family wedding which was held at the Berkeley Botanic Gardens. A beautiful place to spend sometime walking through. Reception at the Shaddock Hotel where the rooms and banquet room was superb. Brunch the next day was a Spats bar and grill on Shadduck Avenue. After the festivies were over and most of the family had left, we dined at Skates on the Marina in Berkeley. Great view and food.

We highly recommend this house if you're going to the bay area.

Unique, well maintain and very California.

  • 5 of 5

Even on a foggy August day the views from the balcony were amazing. Lots of spacious common area inside as well. The kitchen is fully appointed with state of the art equipment. Beds comfy. I would definitely stay again if coming to Berkeley.
