1,000-square-foot 2-bed-1-bath home near Berkeley!

This is a 1,000 sq ft comfortable two-bedtoom, one bath home on a split level lot for added space and privacy. It has refinished hardwood floors throughout, new kitchen flooring, new fridge, laundry area, new plumbing with efficiency toilet, central heating, lots of windows, a new side porch and a good sized fenced backyard with mature fruit trees ready for pie baking. My sunny backyard patio is perfect for al fresco dining—real California living.
The house is in a great location 10 minutes from downtown Berkeley, one mile to rapid transit, and one mile from the freeway to San Francisco.
The quiet, family-oriented neighborhood includes a Nature Reserve Area one block from the house with miles of trails and panoramic views of the Bay Area, and a Community Center offering live theater.

I'm fine with pets as long as they're cleaned up after, etc. I have a cat which will be coming with me to NYC/staying with me.

About Me
I am a 36-year-old writer and book editor. I write short stories, novels and how-to articles. My fiction was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize. My most well-known client is former neo-Nazi Christian Picciolini, who left the white power movement 23 years ago and has been an anti-hate activist since then. His book, White American Youth, was published in December, 2017. He was on 60 Minutes, Sarah Silverman, Megyn Kelly, and has been featured on most major news outlets, such as CNN and MSNBC. I will be there along with my 3-year-old cat, Lucius (black-and-white medium hair).
