If you enjoy being surrounded by Maples, Magnolias and a woodland canyon, this Japanese/French inspired 2 bedroom/1 bath nest might be your next home away from home. Tucked in the Berkeley hills and within close proximity to SF/Bay Area tourist attractions, this home offers city experiences within a nature habitat.
As you open the front gate, lemon blossoms and azaleas will inspire a sense of calm. Upon entering the home, the open concept living room and dining unfold views of the vast, wooded canyon and garden from every window.
In the relational and thoughtfully arranged living room, french doors open to a balcony inviting you to sip California libations or locally roasted morning brew. The Living room sports a 46” TV if you need a little indoor entertainment.
The dining room table holds six guests comfortably and is adjacent to a kitchen that would delight any chef. Complete with a gas oven/stove, ample fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker and French Press, as well as all the pots, pans, blender, silverware and glassware, one may create a scrumptious meal.
There is no better place to collect vittles for your feast than at one of our local Farmer’s Markets (North Berkeley Shattuck/Henry - Thursdays 3PM - 7PM; Kensington Circle - Sundays 10PM-2PM; Albany Solano/San Pablo - Wednesdays 3PM-7PM).
