Charming, sunny, central but quiet 2 bdr (900 sqft); UC Campus, BART station and shopping in walking distance: 2’750 per month

Upper floor of 1905 Berkeley brown shingle duplex, including a large private outdoor terrace with a view to Berkeley Hills and Tilden Park. All rooms are very light, with lots of windows and charming original features.

Area: 20 minutes walk and 7 minutes bike ride to UC Berkeley campus, 3 minutes walk to BART station (the tracks are underground, so there is no noise), 5 minutes walk to famous Berkeley Bowl shopping, 10 minutes walk to downtown Berkeley. Our home is in a small, quiet and neighborly street, even though it is very central. There is a library and park close by. Street parking is available.
Connections to public transportation are excellent: there are bus stops in every direction, and with the BART it takes 17 minutes to get to San Francisco.
The apartment comprises a dining/living room, a large front room that can be used as a bedroom or lounge, a separate bedroom (all with original polished wood floors), a big bathroom with a shower and bath tub (tile floor) and a kitchen leading on to the terrace. It has two entrances, one to the front yard and one to the terrace with stairs leading down to the shared back yard. Our home is ideal for maximum 3 persons, but if you are 4, we can provide an additional mattress.
Our home is fully furnished. You are welcome to use our bikes for free (two adult bikes and one child’s bike, plus a bike trailer). It may also be possible to rent our car.
The terrace has natural slate tile flooring and includes an outdoor setting and patio heater. Laundry (washer/dryer) is downstairs.
The rent is USD 2’750.- per month (water and garbage included), wifi USD 50.- per month, electricity and gas approximately USD 50.- (you pay your effective usage).
