About

The apartment is a separate in-law unit on the ground floor of our craftsman home, with a private entrance through the garden. It is a fully-furnished 1BR with a separate living room and eat-in kitchen. All utilities plus wifi and streaming TV (Netflix and Amazom Prime, though no cable) included. Laundry facilities adjoin the apartment. An enormous closet in the bedroom offers ample storage. Professional cleaning services can be provided once a month for an additional fee of $60. The apartment is especially cozy in the rainy winter months, when the gas-fueled stove can be set ablaze. Something is always blooming in the garden, whatever the time of year, and tenants are welcome to partake of ripe fruit from our fruit trees and gather eggs laid by our backyard hens. The house is on a quiet block but is within walking distance of Piedmont and Grand Avenues, both of which boast a fantastic array of restaurants, bookstores, and movie theaters (including the iconic Grand Lake Theater). Lake Merritt can also be reached on foot, and the Morcom Amphitheater of Roses -- Oakland's own municipal rose garden, a hidden diamond in the urban rough -- is right around the corner. The Lakeshore farmers' market (also within walking distance) runs on Saturdays from 10-2 and is not to be missed. UC Berkeley is a 15-minute drive away via the nearby freeway entrance. The location also offers convenient access to public transportation, including practically door-to-door service to downtown SF via the transbay bus or casual carpool. Parking is available on the street, usually within a block of the house, and no permit is required.
