Warm, charming redwood shingled 3+ bdrm home in Berkeley Hills

This is a delightful three-bedroom, one office, 2-1/2 bath 1750 sq.ft. house with a modern all-appointments kitchen with professional range and oven, teak countertop, maple butcher block food prep area, beautiful Japanese style enclosed front and back areas with a fire pit, Indonesian sandstone water fountain, and places for quiet contemplation, relaxation and entertaining. Three massive redwoods in back yard.

The main bedroom features, TV, Roku, modern bathroom with large shower and separate spacious bath, walk in closet, skylights that look upon oak and redwood trees. A second bedroom, the "fossil room", is appointed with trilobite- encrusted marble counters and flooring. Skylight also there. A third bedroom has a handmade hard maple crib and a colossal hand made hard maple inlaid twin-sized bunk bed with a breath taking back lit photograph of the Oregon coastline (at Bandon) visible from the bottom bunk. Half of electric power for the home is provided by a solar roof array.

Other features: wi-fi, stereo,. 40" flatscreen HD TV, built-in bookshelves, land line phones in every room, hardwood floors, loads of great books, CDs, cassette tapes, vinyl records and original art on the walls.

Included in $4950 are all utilities -gas, electric, water, garbage pickup (saving you $600/mo), weekly garden maintenance (saving you $325), weekly housekeeping (saving you $750), pest management, $70 . Net rent is about $3,400 per month after subtracting housekeeping, gardening and pest control. We are willing to be flexible on terms -- but minimum four months stay, all four paid in advance, with a one-month rent as security deposit. Otherwise, pay one month at a time and two-months' security deposit.

The neighborhood is very friendly, the neighbors are close and helpful, and the area is relatively crime-free.

About Me
My wife and I are both semi-retired, active and bicoastal, meaning we have a pied a terre in Brooklyn and a four bedroom home in Berkeley, CA. I was a newspaper reporter first, then a lawyer, and finally a Japanese style furniture designer and builder. My wife is a PhD statistician who consults part time and spends most of her time sculpting in stone. Our home is a unique, I think beautiful, and comfortable place on an extremely quiet and friendly street in the Berkeley Hills, 1 1/2 miles from University of California. It's on a bus line that goes to the campus and downtown area. I own and manage an artists' live-work warehouse building in Berkeley and have my wood shop there.
