Historic Family Home just blocks to UC Berkeley

A lovely landmarked property in the convenient and desirable Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood of North Berkeley. Just steps to local shops, restaurants, farmer's market and public transportation. The property is 1/2 mile from UC Berkeley, perfect for visitors to the University. The original architectural details, the lush garden, and the location make this an ideal home away from home.

We are renting a beautiful 1885 Victorian home. The main part of the house includes 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen in the historic front part of the house. Adjacent space in the back of the house (a sunroom, a second bathroom, and a deck) is also included. There is some flexibility about which rooms are used as bedrooms and we are happy to discuss options for rental configuration and pricing. Not all spaces are shown in the pictures below. The property also contains several cottages with lovely tenants.

The rate includes utilities (gas, electric, water, garbage, wireless internet) and full furnishings (all furniture, sheets, towels, pots, pans, etc.) Our cleaner will do very basics every other week. The house does not have TV. There is (coin-operated) laundry in the basement. A car is not necessary as we are in walking distance to (shopping, UC Berkeley, farmer's market, BART). Parking is street parking. Parking immediately in front of the house requires a parking permit that can be obtained from the city (otherwise it is only 2 hour parking during weekday business hours). Some visitors obtain city parking permits and others park a few blocks north where there are no parking restrictions.

We are affiliated with UC Berkeley and love sharing our property with sabbatical guests, visitors to the area, and locals alike.
