About this listing
Welcome to my home...
This fully-furnished, extra-large (180 square feet), private room with hardwood floors is located on the first floor in a gorgeous, peaceful two-story, four-bedroom house in north Berkeley's exclusive and beautiful tree-lined "Gourmet Ghetto" neighborhood, within easy walking distance to downtown Berkeley, just 4 blocks to the University of California campus, and a quick 20-minute drive to downtown San Francisco. Best neighborhood in North Berkeley.
This spacious room includes a full-size bed and a large futon, as well as nightstand, full-size dresser, desk with chair, and wireless internet for your working/studying needs. Big bright windows with soft fabric shades provide lots of sunlight and fresh air while you enjoy the gorgeous tree-filled views.
The house is within easy walking distance of the famous Berkeley Rose Garden, a vast array of wonderful restaurants (including world-renowned Chez Panisse; the very popular Cheese Board pizzeria; Asian, European, Indian, Mexican, and other international cuisine; delicatessens; cafes and coffee shops), grocery shopping, the Berkeley Farmer's Market, banking, post office...and more.
Downtown Berkeley is an easy 10-minute walk, and just several minutes by car or bicycle. Public transportation is convenient and abundant, with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations and AC Transit bus lines nearby.
You have convenient access to two shared full bathrooms and one shared half-bathroom. You also receive an off-street space in the driveway for your parking convenience.
The room and house offer a quiet, safe, secure place for studying, visiting friends, and/or touring.
The house features wireless and ethernet-wired connections to the internet in all rooms, full kitchen privileges, living room, laundry, cozy "sitting room", and a large, serene rear deck with scenic bay views that also overlooks the big backyard with its lush avocado and lemon trees.
This room also offers a new wireless LED TV for watching Xfinity cable television. In addition, Netflix has already been programmed into the television so that you can watch movies without commercial interruptions. You can also watch Youtube as well as other entertainment apps found on most new smart television sets.
For long-term stays that are more than a week, you are welcome to help yourself to sheets, pillow cases, towels, etc. that are located in the linen closet next to the upstairs bathroom. Just put the dirty linen, towels, etc. in the dirty clothes hamper next to the washing machine downstairs when you change your bedding and/or change your towels. (Try not to overload the washer and dryer.)
There are spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge from this property. And the Educator/Teacher neighbors are very friendly and nice!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
Thank you for your interest. I look forward to your visit!
