One Bedroom Oasis in Bustling Rockridge This quiet urban retreat is on a beautiful tree-lined street in Rockridge, one of Berkeley’s most coveted neighborhoods. The home is located just 2 blocks from College Avenue, a bustling street with fabulous shops, cafes and restaurants. It offers a magical garden next door, gorgeous interiors and abundant unrestricted parking. The UC Berkeley campus is just a 10-15 minute bike ride away. Enter through a secure locked gate down a pathway to a private side entrance and sweet private outdoor sitting area (perfect for morning coffee and evening retreats). Once inside, the new kitchenette includes a stackable washer/dryer(shared by Landlady once weekly), refrigerator, toaster oven, electric skillet, electric kettle and cupboards stocked with dining and cooking essentials.. Off the kitchen is a cozy bedroom with an adjacent bathroom that includes a comfy queen-size bed and plentiful storage space. In addition, there is a large living room with a dining/work space, a futon (can be a full-size bed), and an extremely relaxing sitting area with a recliner, couch, TV (firestick ready) and a turntable with records. The living room is lit up by natural light shining through French doors that open to a shared patio. The semi-retired owner and her small, friendly dog live upstairs in a completely separate flat with an outside staircase. She is very respectful of privacy and is a long-time Rockridge resident, available for assistance if needed. LGBTQ+ friendly. Nearby College Avenue extends north to Elmwood in Berkeley before ending at UC Berkeley. Walk 3 blocks west to the heart of the Temescal neighborhood or take a 10-minute walk to Piedmont Avenue to explore more restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. BART is a 4-block walk for trains into SF, and there is easy access to major freeways 24, 80, 880 and 580 for adventures to the coast, the wine country or the Sierras. Take a short drive to the East Bay Regional Parks for lovely hikes through redwoods with stunning vistas, or stroll at the Berkeley Marina along San Francisco Bay. This home is a great place to use as a home base for relaxation, work, study and adventure! Walk Score is 92.
