Historic property in Berkeley's Elmwood. 8 blocks to University of California, Berkeley. Two blocks to College Avenue. 97 WalkScore!

Walk, bike or drive to campus from this spacious light-filled Edwardian home! Quiet and away from it all in a secluded prime residential Elmwood neighborhood, yet just a couple of blocks to the hub of Elmwood and Rockridge stores, restaurants, and cafes. Ideal for visiting faculty families, sabbatical visitors, or a responsible, quiet group of students.

A large and light-filled 2nd floor Edwardian flat facing west out over Berkeley rooftops towards the San Francisco bay. All rooms get lots of light throughout the day.

There are two large and spacious bedrooms, a formal dining room (or third bedroom), and a living room with excellent high-end sofa sleeper that has been used on occasion as a 4th bedroom by visiting scholars, grad students, or visiting faculty family. The rooms and furniture can be reconfigured depending on your group and needs.

In the largest south facing bedroom, there is one single and one double bed, a closet, and large chest of drawers. The second largest bedroom has a queen bed, large chest of drawers, windows to the south and west, a desk and chair and built in bookshelves. The third large west facing room (currently configured with formal dining table, chairs and a twin sleeper-sofa) has been used as an office, formal dining room, or bedroom. (There are two or three dining areas in the flat depending on preferred configuration of rooms: an eat-in kitchen with table and chairs, formal dining room rarely used as such, as well as a dining table and chairs on outdoor deck.)

The Claremont Resort and Spa is about 5 minutes or less from house, as is the Berkeley Tennis Club, (both with pools, tennis courts and fitness clubs). The Strawberry Recreation Center- located on the periphery of the Cal campus is also close by and has outdoor lap pools, a toddler pool, and is surrounded by old oaks and redwoods. For families with young children, there are two children’s parks within a half block of the property: Bateman Park and a second park set is in a quiet redwood grove and green field and provides new play structures and sand for kids.

Located in one of Berkeley's most loved neighborhoods, and in a no-through traffic sleepy cul-de-sac, the property is only a ten-minute walk away from bustling activity in the heart of Elmwood and Rockridge. Equidistant to Telegraph and College Avenues, the house is just a couple of short blocks to fine dining, ethnic restaurants, bookstores, theater, and Berkeley's university campus, (Cal).

San Francisco is about a 20-minute drive without traffic and also easily accessible by BART from Rockridge which is 10 blocks south of property on College Ave.
