Stay in the most historic neighborhood in Berkeley, in one of its most impeccably renovated Victorians! Just steps from the popular tourist destination Fourth Street where shopping, boutiques, and restaurants abound!

This full floor of an 1896 Victorian is an amazing residential space to meet your vacationing needs. It has 12 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling recessed bay windows, hardwood oak floors, and curved moldings and woodwork. Beautifully restored - it was renovated with sustainable and 'green' methods: original lathe and plaster walls filled with cotton denim insulation, zero-voc ecopaints were custom mixed in vintage colors, fixtures and hardware were restored and retained.

- Remodeled great room with sitting and eating area,

- Master bedroom has new king size bed, down alternative comforter, high count organic cotton sheets, and walk-in closet,

- The vintage bathroom was redone with imported Victorian art tile, deep soaking tub and rain spout shower head,

- Entire apartment furnished and decorated with comfortable period pieces, flat panel TV with DVD and free cable, high speed wireless internet, IPOD/CD player sound system and free dedicated local phone line,

- A small private deck off the master bedroom offers a sunny outdoor spot with chairs for morning coffee or watching the sunset over a glimpse of Mount Tam,

- Large, sunny, level backyard with sculpted lawn, custom built sandbox and deep planter box perimeter, scented flowers and vines. Mermaid fountain rests on handcut flagstone patio. Birdfeeders and birdbaths attract hummingbirds, cardinals, bluebirds, finches and more.

We have equipped the flat with everything you need - don't pack too much - as we provide DVD and reading library, towels, linens, kitchen ware, etc.


We're happy to offer information on local eateries, sights and shopping. We are also happy to guide you in any search for child friendly or pet friendly activities and businesses.

Perfect for a quiet romantic stay, a stimulating visit with friends or family , a focal spot for sightseeing trips to Napa, San Francisco, Sausalito, Muir Woods, and UC Berkeley.

3 minute drive and fifteen minute walk to the North Berkeley BART station with easy access to all San Francisco, Oakland and other Bay Area destinations. Just off the main Berkeley exit of Interstate 80, University Avenue, which both leads directly to the Bay Bridge into San Francisco or up to the entrance of the University of California campus. And just 3 blocks away from the popular Fourth Street district with unique and coveted shopping, art and food.

This is a full story of a two unit Eastlake Victorian with lots and lots of light and scenery. It's the sunniest, prettiest spot you'll find to stay in Berkeley's buzzing Oceanview district. Don't miss out!
