Cute Elmwood Studio 12 Min Walk to Campus

Recently remodeled, cute and quite spacious studio apartment that comfortably accommodates 1 or 2 people. Walk to campus in 12 minutes. Many amenities within 10-15 minutes’ walk on Telegraph and College Avenues.
• The apartment is on the second floor at the rear of a majestic old house built in 1907.
• It’s small (~400 sq ft) but doesn't feel cramped – there is efficient use of space.
• Tastefully furnished and decorated.
• Original wood floors, windows on 2 sides, queen-size bed with storage drawers underneath.
• Living space has sofa, chairs, desk/working space, sizable closet.
• Large fully-equipped eat-in kitchen (but no dishwasher).
• Tiled bathroom with shower.
• Large shared outdoor deck.
• Wi-fi, flat-screen TV.
• Coin-op washers & dryers a short distance away on the ground floor.
• Off-street parking for a modest-sized vehicle.

The Neighborhood:
The studio is in the Elmwood residential district, 1 block from Telegraph Avenue, 2 blocks from College Avenue, close to public transport. You could easily manage without a car. The location has a walk score of 94 which classifies it as a “Walker’s Paradise”!

It’s 5-10 minutes’ walk from numerous ethnic and specialty restaurants (Italian, Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, French, Japanese, burgers, pizza, Swiss-style fondue, Chinese, Korean barbecue, a Subway), coffee houses, bookstores, vintage clothing stores, music stores, and student hangouts.

A large CVS pharmacy is a block away, and Whole Foods is 4 minutes by car or a 12 minute walk (5 blocks).

Access:
There are buses on Telegraph or College Avenues to downtown Berkeley, BART stations (Bay Area Rapid Transit system), Oakland and San Francisco. The Claremont Hotel & Conference Center is just over a mile away. There is freeway access either at Telegraph Avenue & 55th Street (about 2 miles) or Ashby Avenue (about 3 miles) where you can drive to San Francisco, Oakland, Marin County & the Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley, and Lake Tahoe. Twenty minutes driving (outside rush hours!) will take you to San Francisco across the Bay Bridge. If you take BART from the Rockridge station, it’s about a 20 minute ride to SF. From Ashby or downtown Berkeley, it takes a little longer since there is a change of train required.

Price
• In addition to the quoted rent, we ask for a security deposit of $600 (it will be refunded at the end of your stay, assuming no damage claims).
• Our rate is all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax, but it is not charged to you.

The fine print:
• Strictly no smoking anywhere in the apartment, on the deck or on the property! A Berkeley City ordinance prohibits it in apartments and common areas of multi-unit dwellings.
• This is a generally quiet residential neighborhood, and we want to keep it that way.
• Sorry, no pets.
• Please respect your neighbors.
• The apartment will be cleaned and stocked with initial supplies before you arrive. Cleaning service can be arranged on request for an extra charge.

About Me
Berkeley, California. Originally from the UK, I have 2 (!!) graduate degrees from UC Berkeley - an internationally renowned university in a vibrant city – a community with innovative restaurants, serious coffee houses, arts and cultural events, intriguing architecture, and many parks for outdoor activities. It enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate – summers are cooler and winters are milder than most of the rest of the US. It’s across the Bay from San Francisco and is accessible by car across the Bay Bridge or San Mateo Bridge – by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) under the Bay – or by ferry at Jack London Square in Oakland. If you are looking for fully furnished accommodation within easy walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus, for your sabbatical, teaching or research assignment, please contact me for more information.

Margaret was great about communicating and responding. The rental agreement was straightforward, with reasonable provisions. I look forward to staying in her apartment this summer. Excellent Carole 2/2/2018 7:49:00 AM
