2-Bedroom Scandinavian modern hideaway

Set back in a quiet garden, this 2 bedroom cottage is a peaceful retreat located just steps away from a thriving restaurant and shopping district. The cottage enjoys a calm garden view from a spacious deck. The UC Berkeley campus is a short walk (~7 mins) away for academic visitors.

This newly renovated Scandinavian modern home features high vaulted ceilings and white oak floors offering both light and warmth. The kitchen has a large expanse of Carrara marble counters and a full complement of pots, pans and utensils and the basic essentials to make a home-made meal when you tire of restaurants. Other amenities include brand-new large capacity washer and dryer in the unit, a walk-in pantry and a private 250 square foot deck with seating and dining areas as well as blazing fast fiber internet.

Elmwood is one of Berkeley's most popular neighborhoods because of its proximity to amenities as well as its beautiful leafy tree-lined streets. Elmwood has some of the oldest homes in the area featuring the classic brown-shingles for which Berkeley is known. Elmwood Cafe with its big bowls of cafe au lait, superior baked treats and sandwiches is less than two blocks away and an excellent introduction to the neighborhood. Mrs. Dalloway's is a charming bookstore just next door. Many other restaurants and boutiques are down the street on College Avenue.

In addition to walking access to the Bart stations (~1.2 miles), there is a bus stop just around the corner for a 5 minute ride to Bart. If you have a car, highways 13 and 24 are a very short drive away and offer access to Oakland, San Francisco and beyond. Because we are so close to restaurants, boutiques and campus, there is a 2hr limited parking in the neighborhood. We supply a parking permit for one car.
