Lovely Fully-furnished Remodeled Backyard Berkeley Cottage

This newly remodeled (January 2018) one-bedroom stand-alone cottage in a great location in North Berkeley is ready for its first tenant!

Everything is completely new, including skylights and windows, upscale bathroom with radiant heat in the tiled floors, fully-equipped kitchenette, awesome lighting, paint, permanent electric heaters, vaulted ceilings in the main room, French doors, on-demand water heater, refinished hardwood floors, and more.

The cozy, light-filled cottage has been tastefully furnished with all new fixtures and furniture, including art from the owner’s personal collection.

The cottage is behind the main house in a quiet, large (for Berkeley!) backyard, surrounded by gardens that are shared with the owner. Tenant enters the backyard through a gate at the side of the yard.

The cottage is perfect for one person. A couple could manage. While there is no stove, the kitchenette is fully-equipped with all new appliances including a portable induction cooktop, microwave, crock pot, and electric kettle. There are fresh new linens for the double bed and new towels in the bathroom.

The property is in a great walking neighborhood with friendly neighbors and easy off-street parking with no restrictions. Within a 10-15 minute walk of the Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood in North Berkeley with great dining options and independent retail shops.

About Me
Hi! I recently sold my business and, as of January 1, am taking a gap year - in my 50s! I plan to travel (learn to cook in Morocco and Italy, hike in Utah the Alps, and the Himalayas, and write that novel that has been festering inside me), all as a way to gather inspiration for my next career. I loved the process of remodeling a backyard cottage and look forward to working on the garden next.
