Light-Filled, San Francisco View Flat. 9 blocks to University of California, Berkeley. 97 WalkScore!

A small but private and quiet Edwardian flat Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet only a 4-5 minute stroll to bustling College Avenue. Located in the heart of Elmwood, equidistant to Cal and Rockridge Bart: Eight blocks to the CAL / UCB campus, and 9 blocks to Rockridge Bart. Whole Foods, is two blocks west and 2 north, and Safeway on College Avenue is 3 blocks east, and one block south. There are several farmer's market events in Berkeley throughout the week. From Rockridge Bart, it is 15-20 twenty mins to downtown San Francisco.

This is an excellent, coveted, quiet residential neighborhood, boasting a 97 Walkscore! You will not need a car. Walk north along College and you will end up on the UC Berkeley campus, passing many cafes and restaurants along the way, and if you head south, you will end up in Rockridge, where you will find Market Hall, Olivetti's and many stores, cafes and restaurants.

The flat is ideal for one or two people. It has one bedroom, or two if you choose to use the living room as bedroom. It has a small kitchen, and Bosch washer and dryer. There is a full sunny bathroom, with a full tub and shower over.

One of the two rooms faces south and the other faces west, so both get a lot of sun at different times. You can also see a peek of San Francisco on a clear day over the Berkeley cityscape and rooftops.

Although this place is small, it has a wonderful quiet peaceful ambience that serves as a sobering refuge away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It makes a perfect writer's studio, artist's atelier or Pied-a-terre for the visitor who has family in the area, wants to work or write, or simply explore the area. It is a favorite spot for sabbatical faculty and students working/studying or visiting CAL. Fully equipped kitchen and all linens provided.
