SERENE, FULLY-FURNISHED, 1 BR/1 BA APT ATOP CLAREMONT CANYON.

Spacious bottom floor of a private residence, my home, is available: canyon views and green surrounds, private deck, separate entrance, Wi-Fi, washer/dryer (in shared utility room), dedicated parking, quality construction, and wildlife abounds. The layout is open, with concrete floors throughout and radiant heat in the bedroom and bath. The kitchen features a gas stove, a breakfast bar, custom concrete counters and cabinetry, and comes fully equipped to prepare and serve dinner for six. For some local history: former bleachers from Kezar Stadium and bookshelves from Cody's were repurposed as cabinets. The living room includes a great napping couch and a shortened Cody's bookshelf stocked with an assortment of reading. Apartment is wired for a landline, if desired.

Local critters and neighbors include quail, hummingbirds, squirrels, deer, red-tailed hawks – as well as one charming cat, Carlyle, in residence upstairs.

The location is a good launching point for walking, hiking, and running, with close proximity to several East Bay Regional Parks. Highways 24 and 13 are minutes away, making access to Oakland and Walnut Creek about equal; the walk to Fournée and Peets takes about 20 minutes; UCB is short drive or a long, beautiful, ~30+ minute walk.

About Me
I am a Bay Area native, educated locally (St. Ignatius, U.C. Berkeley, Golden Gate Law School), and a lawyer by profession. Travel is a love, but cooking is my true passion. I lost my previous home in the 1991 Oakland Firestorm, and it took me 5 years to rebuild and reoccupy. It was a blessing in disguise as it provided the opportunity for me to play designer and general contractor. Paul Discoe and Joinery Structures created the basic design and were instrumental in securing sources of repurposable, large-dimension timbers for the structural elements of my home (a mere 25 years ago).
