Description

Award winning, green architectural gem. Featured in Atlas Obscura, Berkeley walks, and other popular sites for its inviting and unique green design. The interior is spacious, open, and sunny with beautiful wood and plaster finishes all around. The living room has a thick, felted wool rug and comfortable, mid century furniture. The kitchen is well appointed as we cook a lot ourselves. The dining table, a slab of California redwood, seats 8 comfortably. The bedrooms and full bath are upstairs with a king bed in the back bedroom, The front bedroom is currently furnished as an office with a twin bed, which could be switched out for a full. The house has a very large sunny yard filled with natives, herbs, vegetables and fruit trees (lemon, apples, figs and persimmon) outdoor dining, and hammock for relaxing. The house exterior features car parts and tree bark siding--truly a head turner for people new to the area. It is located in a quiet, friendly, residential neighborhood, easy walking distance to downtown Berkeley with loads of amazing restaurants, theatre, live music, BART, a Tuesday and Saturday farmer's market, and more. We have two bicycles you can borrow as well, that will take you all over town. As we are centrally located and we have a great network of bicycle boulevards, from here you can easily get anywhere in town on the bikes: North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto, the 4th Street shopping district, the university, and, for a work out, you can bike up into the hills for a walk in our regional parks. Street parking is also easy with unrestricted spaces on the opposite side of the street. You can see more about the house and us talking about it on a You Tube video by Fair Companies titled: "Upscale Bay Area home made from salvaged car roofs & windows".
