Large Sunny 1+ BR with washer/dryer, 3 blocks to campus

This sunny 1060sqft/ 323 sq Meter apartment is on the second floor of a 1920's four-plex, just three blocks North of the UC, Berkeley campus. Perfect for an individual or couple. No more than two (2) people.

Northside Area: along the three block walk to the UC Berkeley campus, there are cafes, shops, restaurants and a nice local pub. From there, a short walk through campus puts you in downtown Berkeley where you'll find the Berkeley BART station, bus lines, restaurants, theaters, cinemas, etc. Walk six blocks West to find the Gourmet Ghetto, yoga studios, shops and a Thursday afternoon market. Trader Joe's is an easy walk away, as is the Saturday market in People's Park. To the North are the Berkeley Rose Garden with its panoramic view of the sunset and Tilden Park with its lake, beach, children's area and hiking trails.

With its large bedroom and comfortable single-bed sleeping alcove, this apartment is perfect for a single or couple and occasional guests.

The front door leads upstairs to large, bright rooms with high ceilings, crown molding and beautiful, original windows. The apartment is furnished with high-end furniture and original art work.

The apartment's large Living Room has a roomy seating area, built in shelves, a working fireplace and a 54" HD tv, as well as a sunny work-space with desk and chair. The sleeping alcove with a single bed is recessed into the long wall behind the couch.

The separate Dining Room has elegant built-in cupboards, a table and chairs and china cabinet. The bright, peaceful Bedroom has a new Queen-sized bed, double dresser and double sized closet with mirrored doors. It looks out onto the shared private garden behind the building. The Bathroom has its original octagonal tile floor and tub, ample storage space, as well as a new shower, toilet and vanity.

The Laundry Room has a washer, dryer, iron and board, as well as private wooden steps into the private garden.

The apartment is carpeted throughout. There is forced air heating and an additional radiator in the bedroom.

About Me
I am a health policy researcher who works on the state and national levels, specializing in identifying best practice models for Medicaid and sharing these among health department and non-profit clients in multiple US states. In 2007-2008, I did a Fulbright research program in Brussels, Belgium and was so grateful to find a sunny, furnished apartment for my family to stay in. Whilst I spend the academic year in England, I am offering my own beautiful one bedroom apartment in a 1920's four-plex, just three, tree-lined blocks from the UC Berkeley campus.
