About

Enjoy a bright, light-filled 1000 sq. feet of comfortable, spacious living in a South Berkley flat. You’ll have the entire ground floor in a duplex, including access to the yard, garden, and charcoal BBQ. Recently remodeled, the flat is approximately 1000 square feet, including a huge bedroom with a queen bed and walk-in closet, bathroom with clawfoot tub and shower, kitchen with new appliances, dedicated laundry room, dining/work room, and living room with new 50” smart TV. New bottom-up window shades give privacy and sunshine in the living room and dining/family area. In the living room is a new 50”smart TV. Doors close on the living room to make an impromptu guest bedroom. The bedroom boasts a new queen-size bed with a comfy reading chair and a walk-in closet that is large enough to hold a crib or toddler bed. The dining room features a functional workspace with a desk, but there is also a small office which is perfect for a computer and concentration. Natural light comes in from a window and it is quiet. The home has central heating with vents in the living room and bedroom to ensure circulation of warm air throughout. This home is pet friendly! We welcome your cat or dog, although we must note that the yard is not fully enclosed so a dog cannot be let loose in the yard. There is also a charcoal grill and outdoor seating shared with the upstairs owner of the house. The location puts you 3 easy blocks from the Ashby BART station, which will take you to UC Berkeley, San Francisco, and all over the Bay Area. There is ample street parking, but with a walk score of 91, this quiet neighborhood has many close amenities. At the end of the block is lovely Grove Park, with a baseball diamond, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, a large field where you’ll find dogs frolicking, and children and toddler playgrounds. Across the street from that you’ll find the Berkeley Public Library and Wat Mongkolratanaram, a local gem of a Thai temple that offers lavish lunches every Sunday. Three blocks from the house is Berkeley Bowl, a world-class grocery store that offers many varieties of fresh California produce, baked goods, bulk food items, prepared hot and cold foods, and a meat department with butchers and fresh seafood. You will also find a large selection of California and international wines. Discover genuine local flavor. Just one block from the grocery store (and thus about 4 blocks from the house) are many great restaurants including Sconehenge (a breakfast/lunch place with scones to die for), Kirala (a first-class Japanese restaurant), Taqueria La Familia, and legendary pizza parlor Emilia’s Pizzeria. If live theater is your thing, The Shotgun Players await. A professional company that puts on contemporary and new work, Shotgun Players is eager to resume in-person shows and you will not want to miss it. When you want to venture farther afield, downtown Berkeley beckons with its many restaurants, movie theaters, book stores and more live theatre at Berkeley Rep. In addition, Berkeley has an extensive network of bicycle friendly streets where cyclists have the right of way. Harper connects with Russell Street, which is designated a bicycle way. This South Berkeley neighborhood is diverse and friendly. Two very good public schools are within walking distance and a Senior Center is directly on the other side of the block. What is most unique about Harper Street is how quiet it feels and yet it is so convenient to so many resources. The Ed Roberts Campus is an easy 3 blocks, right above the Ashby BART stop. This facility is a world renowned model of universal design and inclusivity in architecture. The local stores, eateries, and small antique shops will intrigue you as you discover the delights of your new home.
