Summer Rental Berkeley Hills -House with a Tower and Golden Gate Views!

This is a large beautiful 1928 architectural original - With a tower! It has an amazing incredibly sunny living room (ceiling height of 18 feet!) with a 12 foot high palladium window and a gorgeous curved staircase leading to the second floor. The floors are made of beautiful mahogany and the staircase has original inlaid woodwork from the 1920s. The dining room is in the tower (yes) and has wonderful views of the bay including the City and Golden Gate. The kitchen and office also have views of the bay and the golden gate. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus one office with views of the bay.
All bedding (sheets, pillows, duvets, duvet covers) comes with the house. There are two children's bikes that can be borrowed. The house has excellent fast wireless internet.
The house is near Cragmont Park and Remillard Park (with playground) and is on an idyllic street. It is a short pathway walk to bus 65 and three blocks to bus 67. We use our bicycles to get to campus, but the bus service would be very easy. Many of the neighbors are faculty and staff members at UC Berkeley. The front garden is gorgeous charming original and with a japanese maple, climbing roses, unbelievable jasmine, a plum tree and two of the most productive lemon trees in Berkeley. The back garden has one mandarin tree and one very small fig tree.

The entrance to this house is through the tower. You descend through the front garden, enter the arch to the tower and a brick spiral staircase takes you to the front door. It is one of the most romantic approaches ever!

We live in this house with our children. A fire engine toddler bed can be available with the house. Children are welcome, but this is an unusual house with an internal bridge and balcony, so care must be taken. The kitchen has a new refrigerator, electric cooker, typical appliances, dishwasher, in addition to all dishes, flatware, and cookware. The living room has a large screen tv and a stereo. The office has a tivoli sound system.

Walking in this neighborhood is amazing and we love to take the streets and paths to Gourmet Ghetto and Solano. Both areas offer restaurants, cafes, farmer's markets etc.

This is a very special and romantic house. There are many pictures of the house that can be sent on request.
