About

This listing is for fall 2021. Start and end dates negotiable, but it is a 4+ month bloc. Duck the high rent prices and live in the safest, quietest neighborhood in the East Bay (Albany, a one-mile-square annex of Berkeley). Beautiful small house with separate garden work studio 2.5 miles and 10 minutes from the U.C. Berkeley campus by rapid transit (BART) or bus. 820 sq ft total. Suitable for one person or a couple. AVAILABLE FOR THE BLOC AUGUST 15-DECEMBER 15 but both dates are flexible. You do not need a car to live here! (But if you do, the driveway holds two more cars.)Two blocks to shopping center with Trader Joe’s, plus BART, bus, post office, gym, public library, arthouse movie theater, every ethnic restaurant imaginable within 5 blocks. Wonderful neighbors on all sides. The perfect oasis to shelter in place, if this becomes necessary again. Commute to San Francisco is also easy: close to freeway and bay as well as BART. Living room: stone fireplace, piano. Bedroom: big vine-covered window. 1 closet, plenty of dresser and chest of drawers space. Kitchen: state of the art Kitchen Aid stove and refrigerator, washer-dryer, dishwasher. Dining nook has big windows overlooking a private and beautiful back porch and garden with fig, lemon, pear, apple and pomegranate trees. There are also roses, fuschias, jasmine, bougainvillea, and blooming datura. Tenants are asked to do light watering twice a week. The house is full of artwork, books, and nice stuff that makes it very pleasant to live in, but I am not a fanatic about broken dishes, etc. It is a very relaxed and peaceful environment. My block is a real community of terrific neighbors who look out for each other and will welcome you. The separate work studio in the back yard has skylights, French doors, and two big desks at either end; easily accommodates two people working. An idyllic space to work on an intensive project. All utilities, high speed internet, cable, garbage, and water are included. A special place at below market rent for the right person(s). Rent adjustable for extra lawn and garden care.
