About

Fully furnished private garden bedroom + houseshare. 15-20min to UCB campus. Cozy, quiet 2Bed / 1Bath house in SouthWest Berkeley is shared with 50 year-old female owner, and resident cat. $1450.00 per month includes ALL utilities, WiFi, offstreet parking, sunny backyard garden, access to HUGE movie library, music streaming, bicycle to ride to campus, etc. Quiet neighborhood, near Berkeley Bowl West. You are a "good fit" if you are a quiet, mature, conscientious, visiting scholar / faculty / staff. Very "bike-able" location, and yes, I have a bike for you to ride! More detail: Stylish 1945 2 bedroom, 1 bath bungalow near San Pablo & Ashby Aves. House, kitchen, your bedroom, etc are fully furnished and available for you. 54yr old female owner and 2 yr old indoor/outdoor cat will be your housemates. House has golden hardwood floors, colorful rugs, 8 ½ ft ceilings throughout, and is 905 sq ft on a 3500 sq ft lot. Lovely back yard, very convenient public & bike & car transportation, hottub, off-street parking, internet access, washer/dryer on premises. Your room: • 11 x 11, with private door out to small deck and shared backyard. • smallish closet ( 2 x 3 ½ ) but, full height ceilings + under bed storage = PLENTY of storage space! • Room is cozy (does not feel cramped) with queen bed, desk, file cabinet/bookshelf, and rocking chair in the room. • Keep the door open to the backyard for an expansive feeling -- the green, flowering, relaxing, back yard feels like it’s part of your room. • Room / deck face West and are shaded by large avocado tree -- easily the most consistently temperatured room in the house. House also has: • hot-tub under flowering arbor, & yard with lots of room for veggie gardening (or just reading). • Modern (small, but clean) bathroom. • Modern, wide galley-style kitchen with rustic dark red tile floors, & all dishes, pots / pans, etc that you need. We share ALL the house common areas: bath, kitchen, yard. • Central heat. • Street parking is easy, and you may use the driveway for off-street parking if you have a car. Very convenient, quiet neighborhood: • In "the flatlands" -- easy 15-20min bike ride to UC Berkeley. • Easy freeway access. • 2 blocks to an Express bus to SF, 2 blocks to a city bus to UC Campus or to BART ( we are 1 mile ( 20min walk ) to Ashby BART) • 2 blocks from huge park (San Pablo Park) – tennis courts, dog runs, soccer and basketball games. • 3 blocks to Berkeley Bowl West - amazing grocery store! • Walking distance to brew pubs, coffee shops, several restaurants, etc. An easy bike ride to LOTS and LOTS more of the same. Who I am : this is a clean, quiet (but social), food-loving, non-smoking household. I do chi gung / yoga / meditate every day. This is a quiet residential neighborhood. You should love & embrace home as a happy, relaxing place. This is a great place to work, relax, read a book, write a book (or a dissertation!). Monthly rent is $1250.00 and includes wifi access, all utilities, access to hottub and yard, washer/dryer, offstreet parking. I’ll ask you for 1st month + $1250.00 deposit, a credit / reference / employment verification check, and we'll have a detailed conversation about “what do we both expect as housemates, house rules, etc” to make sure we're a good fit!
