Available August 1, 2018 till July 15, 2019. Ideal for a single tenant sabbatical scholar family.

Gorgeous furnished 2 storey house conveniently located within walking distance of UCB campus, UCB affiliates, UCB campus shuttles, LBNL and MSRI/Space Sciences Institute shuttles, Farmers Market, shopping, and Bart train to San Francisco. Several private schools e.g. Montessori, Berkwood Hedge, and public schools close by. Public schools include Washington Elementary School just around the corner, Berkeley High School across the street, and King Junior High, a short walk or bicycle ride. Off-street parking for 1 car in shared driveway.

1st floor - consists of Living Room, a separate, formal Dining Room - great for entertaining, 1 bathroom with shower, sink & toilet, shared coin-op laundry room w/washer/dryer), entry to shared backyard gazebo, a fully-equipped, galley style kitchen with large refrigerator, dishwasher, gas stove/oven with range hood, microwave, coffee maker, utensils and dishes.

House is part of large property that includes 2 other furnished, separate units - a studio (see sabbatical listing ID #45684) and a furnished 1 BR flat (see Sabbatical listing ID #27594). The studio and 1 BR flat are usually taken by visiting scholars (mainly international), here for a shorter term (1 to 4+ months).

The location is a big draw. The house provides comfort and convenience since it's within a short distance of campus, public transportation, shopping (Berkeley Bowl and Trader Joe's are close by), recreational and cultural attractions (parks, hiking trails, theaters- Berkeley Repertory & Aurora Theater Company, California Jazz Conservatory and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archives).

Absolutely no pets, no smokers. All utilities (water, gas/electric, refuse collection, Internet) are paid by Owner-landlord. All plantings, yard maintenance done by and paid for by Owner. Two old bicycles available for bicycling around town, getting to campus.

I can't rave enough about this studio or about Bhuma, the owner/manager. All was as pictured and even better. This studio besides being safe, secure, clean and fully equipped also has nice little artsy touches that gives it that welcoming feel. My husband and I had a wonderful stay there this past October. The studio is within walking distance to UC Berkeley, Bart, farmers market, Trader Joe's, Shattuck Ave. restaurants, movie theaters and shopping. Perfect for a single traveler or a couple. The studio has a French door that opens onto a wonderful deck that looks out on Bhuma's marvelous garden, which is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the warmth of the day. If your looking for more space this home has 2 other larger units just ask Bhuma for the details. Bhuma is wonderfully kind and helpful and knows Berkeley and the SF area extremely well, feel free to ask for advice, if she can help she will. We know that we could not of found a better place and hope to return for a month or maybe 2 sometime next year. Thank you Bhuma for making your studio the perfect place for us to stay when in Berkeley. Excellent vaguemoon 12/1/2012 11:34:00 PM
