All about Margaret’s place

Classic period piece! Unusually spacious (third floor) 1 BR in elegant 1920's Berkeley building, renovated and decorated with European flair. Comfortable, stylish and fully furnished. Washer/dryer inside the apartment!

The space
Location: This 1 bedroom apartment is located in a classic 1920’s Berkeley building, with intriguing architectural detail inside and out. It’s 12 blocks ( 1.4 miles, 27 minutes walking ) from the UC campus, about a 13 minute walk from the Rockridge BART station, (0.6 mile) on a bus route, and with easy and close freeway access from Claremont Avenue.
10 minutes walk, 0.5 of a mile to Alta Bates Hospital.
Kitchen is equipped to make cooking easy, but many interesting restaurants are within three blocks either direction along College Avenue.

Many small coffee and tea houses, bakeries, specialty restaurants, bookstores, boutiques and grocery stores on College Avenue -- all within easy walking distance in either direction. Whole Foods is a half mile away at Ashby and Telegraph Avenues.
Accommodation: It’s ideal for 1-2 people. Furnished and decorated with 1some 1920’s style artwork, the apartment is spacious (780 sq ft, or 73 sq meters). It's at the front of building, with special sound deadening bedroom windows. The spacious eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops and a dishwasher. The living/dining room is comfortable for relaxing, and the desk in a breakfast and also be used as a dining table. The bathroom has an over-the-tub shower and original 1920s tiles. Washer and a dryer are inside the unit!

There is a front entrance and a back entrance. Lots of closet and cupboard space. The floors are refinished original hardwood throughout except in the kitchen and bathroom, which feature tile floors with French Provincial designer inserts.
Our rates are all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you.
As for availability there is no need to inquire since the calendar is always up to date - but you have to search around the web page a little to locate the button "view calendar".

Interaction: Our delightful and enthusiastic hosts Binyam and Bruk (originally from Ethiopia) live nearby. One of them will welcome you when you arrive and will be available during your stay by phone or e-mail to answer any questions. Otherwise, you will have the place to yourself – we respect your privacy, and you won’t be disturbed.

Born in England, now living in California for many years. Two (!!) graduate degrees from UC Berkeley. I have been an Airbnb guest in the US and several other countries and have appreciated the experience of staying in a real home, a place with warmth and character, in an interesting walkable neighborhood. That’s what my co-host (my husband Jack) and I offer you, too, in Berkeley – a vibrant town with an internationally renowned university, distinctive architecture, innovative restaurants, serious coffee houses, bookstores, parks, museums, theater, a lively music scene – and conveniently close to San Francisco.
