Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: I have lived in Berkeley with my family for over 35 years. I have rented out an in-law unit in my own home and enjoyed meeting many people from all over. I have two children and work as a project manager in the health industry. My hobbies include hiking, biking and martial arts. I love to travel and enjoy helping visitors find unique and interesting things to do.

Why the Owner Chose North Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA:
This property is very conveniently located for seeing the San Francisco area, Berkeley being in itself a city worth spending time in. It has a garage for those that want to have a car, but a car is not necessary since shopping and transportation is within easy walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location! The unit is clean and well appointed making it a wonderful place to call home while visiting the bay area.
