About the Property

1.5 BR, 1BA w/ large yard. Walk to UC, Elmwood shops + restaurants

If you want to be in the middle of the action but away from it all, this modern retreat in the heart of Berkeley is for you!

The open, light-filled 2-story apartment features a fully-equipped, updated kitchen with new appliances. The dining and living areas open up onto a large, private back yard with fruit trees offers many places to relax, and features a large deck and gas BBQ for a Cal Football tailgate party or an intimate dinner.

Upstairs, the sky-lit master suite includes a queen bed and walk-in closet. If you are traveling as a family, the adjacent sun room has twin bunk beds.

For exploring Berkeley and the greater Bay Area, the location can't be beat. Walk to UC campus (including Greek Theater, Zellerbach Hall, Memorial Stadium and Haas Pavilion) and Elmwood shops and restaurants. Across the street is Willard Park, which features a playground, tennis courts (we provide racquets and balls) and lots of grass.

The Rockridge BART station is a 10 block walk, and with convenient freeway access, you're 20 minutes from San Francisco, and an hour from the Wine Country and the Marin Coast.

Recommended for a couple or family (max 4).

We look forward to welcoming you to Berkeley. You're going to love it here!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I have always wanted to run an inn or a bed and breakfast, but my careers in architectural lighting design and metalsmithing have led me in a different direction. When we found this quaint duplex in our neighborhood, we bought it with friends and jumped on the opportunity to provide Berkeley visitors with a very special experience.

Why the Owner Chose Elmwood, Berkeley, CA, USA:
We love the Elmwood neighborhood of Berkeley, CA and have called it home for over 10 years. This Elmwood house is in the center of so much - close to UC Berkeley, the Elmwood strip of College Ave. and Willard Park. Architecturally, it is filled with natural light, it is spacious and has a very peaceful backyard. We thought this would provide the perfect landing spot for someone visiting Berkeley and one you will hopefully consider your home away from home!
