Huge sun-lit furnished 1BR in Grand Lake, Oakland for Summer 2020

Huge, beautiful, sun-lit, furnished 1BR apartment in Grand Lake available for sublet for Summer 2020 (June through Sept; dates somewhat flexible). [I'm also renting it through Academic Year 2020-21.]

The apartment has a huge living room with an alcove and working fireplace; dining room; open kitchen; bedroom; and bathroom. It gets a TON of natural light. It’s fully furnished, but not cluttered. The apartment is on the second floor and one of four units in the building; my neighbors are lovely (and quiet).

There is coin-operated laundry downstairs.

There's also a nice little patio in the backyard with a table, chairs, and chiminea, all for common use by the tenants. Perfect for summer!

Kitchen has a gas stove and a small dishwasher and is well stocked with requisite equipment (microwave, toaster). All linens, dishes, pots and pans, cutlery, glasses, etc. will be provided. I will leave all bookshelves empty for your use (if you wish), as well as the bedroom closet and dresser.

The apartment is in a fantastic part of Oakland, just off Grand Avenue, very close to shops, restaurants, and nightlife, including the Grand Lake Theatre. Local bookstore Walden Pond Books is 5-8 minutes walking. The weekly Saturday Farmers Market is 8 minutes away. Lake Merritt is a 10-minute walk. The casual carpool spot at Lakeshore and Grand (for commuting to San Francisco) is a 10-minute walk. Whole Foods is a mile away (an 8-minute drive), Safeway a 5-minute walk.

There is street parking and you do not need a permit.

Rent includes wireless high-speed internet, water, and garbage collection. Utilities (gas + electric) are additional (whatever you use), usually ~$40 in the summer months.

I am looking for an individual or couple: you should be securely employed, quiet, responsible, clean, non-smoking, and drug-free. I will ask for (and contact) two to three landlord references.

Rent is $2900/month. There is a security deposit of $2000, plus a non-refundable cleaning fee of $200 for basic cleaning after you leave. First month’s rent and security deposit will be due at lease-signing.
