Beautiful Berkeley Hills 4 BR Home, 5-minute walk to UC Campus

This is a fully furnished centrally heated 11- room, 2900 sf home in the beautiful north Berkeley hills, near the UC Campus and Chez Panisse. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths.

The four bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom suite has two rooms with a sliding partition, its own full bath with two sinks and two large two closets. It is very sunny with 11 windows providing a sweeping Bay view. It also has French doors to a deck looking out on the Bay, San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. There is a built-in desk at one end of the suite that can be used as an office and can be partitioned from the sleeping area. For the other bedrooms there is another bathroom with two sinks and a Jacuzzi bathtub and rain shower.

On the main floor is a state of the art kitchen, formal dining room, large living room, entry hall with a half bath, and side leisure room leading to the spacious first floor deck and barbecue island.

The kitchen and all bathrooms are recently renovated to state of the art in design, materials and craftsmanship.

Downstairs is fully finished with a utility room with another half bath, a recreation room, and a miscellaneous room. The downstairs level is at the back garden level. There is an internal stairway from the kitchen to the lower level, and there also is a separate entrance from the garden.

There is a lush garden in the back with a patio.

The location is ideal. Just a few blocks from the lively north Shattuck area lined with restaurants (including the world famous Chez Panisse), shops, supermarkets, pharmacies, and public transportation. Also a short 4-block walk to and from the north side of the UC Campus where there are more shops and restaurants. Downtown Berkeley is also very close, with movie theatres, performing arts theatres and more shops and restaurants. Codornices Park and the Berkeley Rose Garden are just a block and a half away, and La Loma Park is also very close by.

The house is up the hill from Shattuck, providing great views, but still on the last straight level street (with easy on-street and driveway parking) before reaching the lovely narrow winding and climbing streets and paths and steps of the Berkeley Hills - which are great for those who like walks for exercise.

In general, the "walkability" of the location of this house is really a great plus. A short level walk to Campus, an easy walk to Shattuck and Downtown, very close to neighborhood parks, and at the threshold of pretty walks in the Berkeley Hills.

The three mile long Tilden park is also close by with two lakes, nature areas, great hiking trails, an old fashioned carrousel, junior sized steam train with rides through the park, picnic areas, animal farm, etc.

About Me
We (Chris and Sarah) have been married and living in this house for 25 years. We love to travel and have visited about 30 countries in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and Pacific Islands. We have two children in their final years in college. Sarah is a senior travel advisor, specializing in cruises. Chris has just retired from his job as a patent litigation attorney. Until 2013, Chris had been an adjunct faculty member teaching at UC Berkeley Law School for 31 years. We wish to lease our house while we transplant ourselves to various world locations for living and travel abroad. Our picture is from our recent trip to the Maldives.
