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; it 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. Minimum stay for rental is 30 days.
For a home exchange, both floors of the work/live condo are available. In addition to the apartment on the first floor, the double finished studio on the ground floor has a full bath; there is a twin futon in the first studio and a queen size futon in the 2nd studio. The ground floor studio is 650 square feet and has french doors that open onto the garden patio. For the home exchange with both floors, you can easily sleep 5-6 people. Minimum stay for home exchange is 15 days.
There are 6 townhouses in the condominium 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.
