Gorgeous Hilltop Sanctuary

We are writers and teachers living in the East Bay and we will be on sabbatical from June 1, 2021-January 15, 2022. We are hoping to find someone to rent our home who will enjoy it as much as we do. Here’s a brief description:

Our home in the Kensington Hills is on three levels; the first level is a light filled living and dining room with a fire place, two decks, one overlooking the Bay, the other nestled under tall pines, a library full of books, a kitchen, and one bedroom and half bath. The second level is home to two bedrooms and two baths. A washer and dryer also live on that floor. And the third level is a study that can also double as a bedroom, with its own bathroom and access to a garden humming with blue jays, home grown vegetables, and a hot tub. There is also a hammock suspended between towering redwoods in the rock garden at the side of the house.

The house is fully furnished, the kitchen well-equipped, and there is a television and a stereo with a wide assortment of CDs.

With a fabulous view of the San Francisco Bay, our home is nestled between Tilden Park and downtown Berkeley. This neighborhood is a paradise for bikers, hikers, artists, writers, and all who enjoy the quiet of hills, the soft fog at twilight, and the glitter of the cities below.

Walking through the streets of this neighborhood one is inspired by the varied architectural styles of its homes, the stunning gardens, secluded and maintained pathways that lead to streets above and below. In these times of sheltering in place, our home and our neighborhood have been a sanctuary for us, and we know it will be for you as well.

A bus stop is just a block away, BART is a ten-minute drive by bus or car, and downtown Berkeley is a half hour walk from the house.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept pets at this time. This is also a smoke-free home.

If you are interested in renting our home, please email us with some information about yourself, and the reason for your stay in the Bay Area. We look forward to hearing from you.
