Berkeley, California, United States
Beautiful light-filled--and fully furnished--cottage situated half a block from Berkeley's beloved Monterey Market is available to rent starting May 10, 2021. The stand-alone unit is nestled behind the family home in the quiet North Berkeley neighborhood that houses a variety of birds during the year. The ground floor is 450 square feet, which includes two large closets. A 195-square-foot loft with natural light and lovely views through the skylights and generous windows is set up for easy computer connection so it can be used as a separate work space or for additional storage. A large fig tree shades the stone patio that fronts the double glass doors. All-new appliances include washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator and a choice of coffee makers. The concrete floor provides comfortable radiant heat. Driveway is limited to pick up and drop off, but parking is usually easily available on the street. The family dog has the run of the flower-filled backyard, but he shares well and can be excluded as needed. Transportation options are excellent. The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), which offers regular service to the University and San Francisco, as well as other points around the Bay, is about a 20 minute walk. The neighborhood's bus connections are convenient as well. Walk Score is 85 (Very Walkable) and Transit Score is 55 (Good Transit). Nearby attractions include Berkeley's famous Gourmet Ghetto (think Chez Panisse, Cheese Board, Peet's Coffee from the 1970s), 4th Street shopping (described as not the place to go for things you need, but for things you want), Westbrae Biergarten, Solano Avenue (many family-owned ethnic restaurants), and McLaughlin's Eastshore State Seashore (magnificent SF Bay views, especially at sunset). Further afield (about 2.3 miles, but spectacular) is Tilden Park with miles of hiking and biking trails. Minimum term is 3 months. No smoking or pets. Rent is $2300 per month, which includes water, garbage, and utilities. First and last month's rent plus a security deposit required.
Comments: Minimum stay is 30 days to comply with City of Berkeley requirement. Prefer 3 mos., 6 mos., 12 mos.
