About this listing
Welcome to my home...
This cozy, quiet, delightful, sun-drenched, furnished room with hardwood floors and spectacular views of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge is located on the second floor overlooking the big backyard in a gorgeous, spacious, peaceful 4-bedroom house in the Berkeley Hills. It also overlooks 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. The Berkeley Hills is the safest and most affluent neighborhood in Berkeley, where the average household income is over $100,000 per year, compared to an average income of just $57,000 per year in the Gourmet Ghetto. Come to the Berkeley Hills--the best neighborhood in Berkeley!
This adorable smaller room (ideal for one person, but can accommodate two) is perfect if you need a modest, private, restful place to sleep, rest, and study, and want to stay in a wonderful home in one of Berkeley's finest, safest neighborhoods. And you receive the added bonus of breathtaking, panoramic, scenic bay views looking out of your own large, private windows!
The room includes a very comfortable and attractive full-size bed with drawers beneath it, spacious desk with chair, and wireless internet for all of your working/studying needs.
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, Middle Eastern 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 internet, full kitchen privileges, living room, laundry, grand piano, and a large, serene rear deck with scenic bay views that also overlook the big backyard with its lush avocado and lemon trees.
All guests are welcome to help themselves 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. (Please 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.
