Description

Well-maintained, super cute, bright, 2-bedroom upper unit in a Victorian duplex in great location: 5 blocks from the Amazing Lake Merritt. You have the larger bedroom (in the photos, the one with two windows) and share the unit with my quiet, gentle, very tidy current housemate, recently graduated with an MA from UC Berkeley. 15-minute walk from Lake Merritt and City Center BARTs, 40 min bike to UC Berkeley, very near buses. Close to Jack London Amtrak, Alameda Ferry, and highway on-ramps to SF, North, East and South Bay. Shops, restaurants, and culture galore. Also near Lincoln University, College of Alameda, Laney College and Mills College. My apartment has everything you need to enjoy the Bay Area and to work--without clutter. Lots of light, beautiful wooden floors, freshly painted and spruced up, great central heating, sun porch, dishwasher, new washer and dryer in the unit, storage, sparsely furnished and suitcase-ready--negotiable, including large and sit-stand work desks. Basement bicycle parking, street automobile parking. A Berkeley PHD, now prof in Ontario, I aim to be fair-minded, considerate, and responsible; I attract the same in tenants:-) No smoking of any sort, no shoes in the units to protect the floors and to be kind to the downstairs duplex neighbors (graduate students). References a plus; ask for mine. ....
