Jingletown Live/Work Loft

My home is a live/work townhouse with a 1 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor and a finished double studio & bath with a separate entrance on the ground floor. The apartment is the unit for rent and has an open floor plan with a kitchen, living/dining area, and a separate bedroom and bath. There are high ceilings with lots of natural light from skylights and large windows. There are 6 townhouses in the building, all facing an interior garden. The apartment has access to a shared garden at the center of the courtyard. The complex is quiet and sheltered from the street with a security gate.
Jingletown, known as an artist district, is a neighborhood located on the Oakland Estuary between the Park St and the Fruitvale bridges. The Estuary separates Oakland from the island of Alameda, California. There are murals throughout the neighborhood; housing is a mix of factory buildings converted into artists'lofts, single family homes, and new live/work condominiums.
It is a 10 minute walk to the Fruitvale BART station; a 20 minute BART ride to San Francisco or downtown Berkeley. The Fruitvale BART Station is part of the BART Bikehub and has bike vale parking/repairs, 24 hour controlled access parking and free smart bike racks: https://bikehub.com/bart
The Jingletown waterfront is part of the San Francisco Bay Trail; easy bike access to Alameda, Oakland, and San Leandro. It is a 10 minute walk to Alameda, an island city with beaches, bike paths, restaurants, shopping, and a ferry to San Francisco. The Fruitvale district of Oakland is home to many Latino businesses and hosts several annual cultural events, including a Cinco de Mayo parade and a Día De Los Muertos festival.

About Me
I am full time faculty at Merritt Community College in Oakland, CA; the demographics of the students and faculty reflect the diverse community of our city and region. I currently chair the Human Development Department and run the Child Development Program within that department. My travel experiences include Central and South America, Mexico, Italy, Turkey, Greece, and the UK. I am interested in home exchanges in Oxford, UK because my daughter and her family live there. However, I love travel, so am open to home exchanges in other destinations.
