Our Berkeley home for your Boston or Jackson, WY home

We live in Berkeley California. We periodically like to spend time in in Cambridge, MA or Jackson, WY and often open to a home exchange, particularly for a few weeks in summer or over christmas, thanksgiving, or spring break or potentially for a sabbatical term.

Our home is a spacious 2 bedroom craftsman-style home with off-street parking, a big kitchen, delicious orange and lemon trees, and is on a small street one block from a park. There is a small office connected to the living room with a motorized adjustable-height desk. There is a large covered front porch which we sit on and read papers in the evening. The neighborhood is quiet, and is a short (~3 block) walk to the North Berkeley Bart. There are a lot of nice restaurants within a short walk. The house is ~1100 square feet in size.

The house is a 17 minute walk, or a 6 minute bike ride to UC Berkeley.

We are potentially open to a 3-way swap.

About Me
Alexander is a professor of climate sciences. Lena is an immigration lawyer. We are going to be in the Cambridge for a sabbatical for the fall 2017 semester and are looking for a home exchange in Cambridge or Somerville. We have both lived in Cambridge off and on for good chunks of our academic carriers and are familiar with the area. We live in Berkeley, CA in a 2 bedroom home and are looking for a house swap for the fall semester. Our home is sunny, has big kitchen, and a big orange tree and a small lemon tree and is on a small street one block from a park. Our home is a 17 minute walk, or a 6 minute bike ride to UC Berkeley. We are also 3 blocks from the North Berkeley Bart, which makes commuting into the city easy.
