Charming Guest Suite Claremont

Private 500 square-foot guest-suite with its own entrance on the ground floor of a gracious three-story 1910 home in one of the oldest and loveliest Berkeley neighborhoods.

The suite is ideal for visiting scholars on fellowships or sabbaticals, and faculty or parents visiting UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley Lab, or myriad other research and educational institutions in Berkeley as well as tourists visiting the Bay Area.

The suite's kitchen and full bath were recently renovated with all new cabinets, gas stove, dish-washer, disposal and granite countertops. Fully furnished, including a brand new queen-size bed, it has its own private exterior access and receives abundant sunlight and air. The Guest Suite has its own stacked washer/dryer.

The owner and three of his four children ages 24, 16 and 14 live in the main house above the Guest Suite.

Located in the Claremont district, one of the most prestigious Berkeley neighborhoods, the suite is a five-minute walk to Domingo Avenue which boasts Peets Coffee, Fournee Bakery, Rick & Ann’s Restaurant, and other neighborhood retail stores. The charming Elmwood District with its gourmet coffee shops, restaurants, retail stores, banks, and boutiques is a ten minute walk.

It is conveniently located within a 15-minute walk of UC Berkeley campus, and a five minute walk to public transit for the BART train to San Francisco. It takes approximately one hour to drive to the Napa Valley wine country, Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, and ninety minutes to Santa Cruz. It is just a few minutes from spectacular hiking and bicycling trails with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay.

The suite is less than five minutes walk from Berkeley's famous Claremont Hotel with it's luxury spa and salon, health club, Paragon Bar and Meritage restaurant.
