Home in the Berkeley flats, within walking distance to restaurants, cafes, shops, services, public transportation, BART, Downtown Berkeley, and the University of California at Berkeley. 1400 square foot home with 2 bedrooms, one bath, living room, kitchen, dining room, office/work room, large front and back yard, and 3 very soft and friendly cats. Children/teens live in this home, so there are toys, books, etc for ages 0-100 years old. Great neighborhood near big park with basketball and tennis courts and play structures, close to Bay and Berkeley marina, with friendly neighbors.
The main bedroom has an incredibly comfortable king-sized bed and new flat-screen TV. The smaller bedroom has another very comfortable queen-sized bed and an adult-length twin-sized bunk bed with a new mattress. The kitchen is a gourmet cook's kitchen, so it is well stocked with all kinds of kitchen tools, baking pans, cuisinart, blender, new dishwasher and refrigerator, and a stereo system to listen to while you cook, etc. The kitchen was just entirely remodeled and is very beautiful and open, with an island for eating or working at, and a kitchen table for sit-down meals. There is a large back room that we use as a workspace with 3 desks, computer screen (if you want to plug in your laptop), art work-space, and a queen-sized futon that can be folded down and used as a third bedroom. The living room has a piano, books, stereo, and couches.
The work room opens with large sliding glass doors onto a beautiful large garden with all kinds of fruit trees, vegetable beds, chicken coop, garden furniture, including a table and chairs if you wish to eat meals outside. There is also an outdoor sink and kitchen prep area, in case you really like having your meals outside. The back yard gets a lot of sun, even in the winter, and is a lovely place to sit and read or drink your morning coffee or evening wine.
There is also a front yard garden with a lovely place to sit, well-hidden from the street behind a screen of purple princess flowers and other foliage.
The front living room has a stereo system, couch, chairs, piano, guitar, other instruments, and fluffy carpet, and is a nice place to stretch out, play games, and relax. We love our home, and think you will as well.
15 minute walk or 3 minute drive to Ashby BART, bus lines on San Pablo or Sacramento Avenues, very bike and pedestrian friendly neighborhood. (But bring your own bikes, please.)
