Charming 3-bed 2-bath home in Berkeley hills

Charming Berkeley hills home with lovely garden and hot tub for rent for approximately one year, summer 2020 to summer 2021, while current owners are away on sabbatical. (This is our permanent home.) Perfect base for a visiting family.

This is a fully furnished 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom house on two levels, with living room, dining room (with piano) and well-equipped kitchen, as well as full laundry facilities. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the third is set up as a child’s room with a single bed (extendable to a queen bed); one of the bedrooms could easily be reconfigured as an office if desired. All bed linens, towels etc. are provided. The upstairs bathroom has a full shower and separate tub; downstairs bathroom has shower over tub. There is a lot of natural light and the property is surrounded by greenery. From upstairs there is a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. There is also a spacious private garden with lawn, hot tub, large sitting/dining patio, fruit trees, roses and other flowering shrubs. The garden is maintained by a gardener at our expense.

The house is situated in the beautiful Berkeley hills, on a wide, open street on the crest of the hills in a peaceful neighborhood with spectacular views over the Bay and hills. There is easy parking in the driveway and on the street. It is a lovely 35-minute walk or 5-minute drive to the Berkeley campus, 7-minute drive to the center of town and Gourmet Ghetto with many shops and restaurants. There is also a bus stop just steps away with regular service to campus and the center of town (as well as BART to San Francisco). There is a public elementary school within one mile. Tilden Regional Park, with numerous hiking trails, a swimming lake, botanical garden and other attractions is right on the doorstep.

The rent includes water, garbage service and gardening. Renters will be responsible for paying gas/electricity and phone/internet (a wifi router with access throughout the property is provided), as well as half the cost of our trusted house cleaner (every two weeks).

We are happy to provide further photographs and answer any questions you may have about the house or living in Berkeley.
