About

North Berkeley foothills home available for fall semester 2021 – start and end dates flexible Our 2400 SF foot home, recently remodeled, is located in the North Berkeley foothills. In one direction you are a 10-minute walk, or 2-minute drive, to NOSH (formerly called "The Gourmet Ghetto") where you’ll find an excellent selection of restaurants including the famous Chez Panisse. Venture two blocks up into the hills, and you’ll find yourself at the beautiful Berkeley Rose Garden, with Codornices Park just across the street. Our location makes for a quiet, private and tranquil setting, within a 5-minute drive to Tilden Regional Park, where over 2000 acres provide abundant hiking trails, a golf course, Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Botanical Gardens, and too many other attractions to list! And, of course, a 3-minute drive, or 10-minute walk, to the UC Berkeley Campus. The property is the back unit of a side-by-side two-unit condo. Our home contains three levels. The main floor is an open floor plan - living area (with attached deck), dining and kitchen area (fully-equipped with quartz countertops, gas range, high-quality cookware), an office space with desk, bookshelves (that will be clear for your use) and printer, laundry area, a bedroom that is currently being used as a den with a full-size sofa bed and large screen TV (if needed, we will switch out the sofa bed for a queen size bed), and a full bathroom. Upstairs is the master bedroom, with queen size bed, half bath, walk-in closet, a “Romeo and Juliet” balcony with small table and chairs, and views (from which you can enjoy amazing sunsets). The ground level includes a bedroom with queen size bed, full screen TV as well as an elliptical exercise machine, full bathroom, and a spacious meditation and yoga room. We have a lovely back yard with teak dining table and chairs. Our home is fully furnished, with a new organic mattress in the master bedroom, and an excellent mattress in the lower-level bedroom. We enjoy bright sunlight, and the attached deck off the living area provides complete privacy (with vines that hummingbirds find quite hospitable!), and comfortable teak chaises and table and chairs. We have a lovely back yard with teak dining table and chairs, and amongst the plants and fruit trees a mature Japanese maple that provides shade on the few hot days of summer. For this 3-bedroom, 2 and 1/2 bathroom condo, the price per month is $5,200 which includes all utilities and high speed internet. We have a long-term relationship with trustworthy women who clean our home every other week. They are available on a weekly or bi-weekly basis as you prefer. The cost per cleaning is $120. No smoking or pets please. We do maintain a shoes-off home and would appreciate that being honored to preserve our maple wood floors and rugs throughout our home. We are amenable to renting our home for the entire fall 2021 semester (mid-August - mid-December) and are also open to a shorter, 3-month term (Sept thru Nov 2021).
