Light-Filled Cottage 5 Blocks UCB

My cottage was my office for many years and is full of books plus a large collection of California landscape and other art. Most of the cottage is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows that get spectacular light, especially at sunset. The bedroom includes a queen bed and a large cedar-lined closet. The bedroom windows are double-pane, argon-filled with exterior metal shades, similar to those found throughout the EU, and interior roman shades, to assure a quiet, dark sleeping space. The cottage was recently remodeled and includes all new appliances, including in-suite washer/dryer. The cottage is behind the front house, which I also own, separated from it by a large stone patio, up a flight of stairs, above the garages and a large storage room, where your luggage and purchases can be stashed. A separate newly remodeled bedroom/bathroom is located across the patio at the back of the front house. I use it for my office and as a spare bedroom for guests. The property is fenced and landscaped. Lots of birds and squirrels.
