Elegant & Spacious 1 BR Apartment, College Ave

Spacious 1-bedroom apartment on the 3rd (top) floor of a classic 1920’s renovated Berkeley building, with intriguing architectural detail inside and out.

The location has a Walk Score of 92 which classifies it as a “Walker’s Paradise”:
• 12 blocks from the UC Berkeley campus (about 27 minutes’ walk) or a 10-minute bus ride along College Avenue (the bus runs every 10-12 minutes).
• 15 minutes' walk to the Rockridge BART station (Bay Area Rapid Transit)
• Alta Bates Hospital is a 10 minute walk away (1/2 mile).
• Many coffee houses, great restaurants, delightful small specialty food stores and boutiques are all within easy reach in either direction.
• Whole Foods is a half mile away at Ashby and Telegraph Avenues.

There’s easy and close freeway access at Claremont Avenue, and you can drive from there to San Francisco, San Jose, Carmel, the coast and Lake Tahoe.

The apartment is fully furnished and decorated. It’s large compared with many 1 BR apartments (about 800 sq ft, or 73 sq meters). It's at the rear of the building, away from street noise, and there is a lot of light.

- The fully equipped kitchen has granite counters and a separate breakfast nook.
- There’s a large comfortable living/dining room, bathroom with tub and over-the-tub shower, bedroom with king-size chest bed (with storage drawers underneath), a hallway, and a back porch accessed via the rear stairs.
- Lots of closets and storage space.
- The floors are refinished original hardwood throughout, except in the kitchen and bathroom which feature designer tile floors.
- A semi-private coin-op washer and dryer is located on the back porch.
- The front and back entrances of the building, and the interior common hallways on each floor, are equipped with security cameras for your protection. The cameras are on 24 hours a day. (Note: There are NO cameras inside the apartment!).

• Our rate is all-inclusive. We pay the Berkeley business license tax and the rent registration fees, but those items are not charged to you.

The fine print:
• No smoking anywhere in the building! A Berkeley City ordinance prohibits it in the living spaces and common areas of multi-unit apartment buildings.
• This is a quiet residential apartment building, and we aim to keep it that way. Please respect your neighbors – no parties or loud noise! Quiet time is 10:00 pm to 8:00 a.m.
• Please don't run the dishwasher or do laundry after 19 PM.
• Please remove your shoes inside the apartment (or wear soft shoes or slippers), and tread softly on the hardwood floors. The people living in the apartment below will appreciate it.
• Sorry, no pets.

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. It's also a 4-hour drive or scenic 8-hour train trip from the Reno/Tahoe area. If you are looking for fully furnished accommodation within easy walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus, or the University of Nevada Reno, 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
