Berkeley Elmwood 1bedroom Craftsman flat, walk to UC, Berkeley.

New listing, just refreshed and furnished. Ground floor flat in Berkeley Craftsman duplex in Elmwood neighborhood. Quiet residential street five minutes walk to College Avenue and its shops, restaurants, bakeries and cafes. Ten minutes walk north to UC, Berkeley; 15 minutes walk south to Rockridge BART station. Available for rental term of 1 to 9 months.

You’ll have the entire ground floor flat, including rear deck, and with private entry. Approximately 1000 square feet, including bedroom, bathroom, eat-in kitchen, living room and dining/work room. Bedroom with new Queen bed. Queen sofa bed in living room, which has doors to close off for privacy.

Charming craftsman-style unit is newly remodeled and furnished, and is fully equipped, with fiber optic internet, TV (your streaming services), gas stove and oven, washer/dryer, microwave, etc. Bathroom has tub/shower combo. Unit has its own heat. Lots of windows and light.

Other things to note:
You don’t really need a car here and it is easy to get a ride share or rent a Zip or other car. If you do have a car of your own, be aware that street parking is limited to two hours from 9 am to 7 pm. We do have a driveway and can work something out with you to share it, as necessary.

Your hosts, Roger and Maureen, live upstairs and are available to help you in any way, from finding the best restaurant or bakery, to local walks, to vacationing in our beautiful state. Just ask. The house was built in 1906 and soundproofing is less than ideal. We are generally quiet in the morning and evening hours and hope our guests can be likewise.

About Me
I graduated from UC, Berkeley years ago, but have stayed in the Bay Area, married my wife, Maureen, raised a family, and am now retired. I moved back to Berkeley in 2011, buying the duplex of which I am offering the ground floor flat for rent while my wife and I live upstairs. We love to travel both domestically and internationally and have a great appreciation of a comfortable, well equipped place to stay when away from home. We look forward to meeting our tenants and will be available to help in any way possible to make your stay a great one.
