Ideal for a single tenant sabbatical scholar family of 4, for example, a couple with two children, or a group of 3 graduate or postdoc researchers . Very private. Gorgeous furnished 2 storey house conveniently located within walking distance of UCB campus, UCB affiliates, UCB campus shuttles, LBNL and MSRI/Space Sciences Institute shuttles, Farmers Market, shopping, and Bart train to San Francisco. Several private schools e.g. Montessori, Berkwood Hedge, and public schools close by. Public schools include Washington Elementary School just around the corner, Berkeley High School across the street, and King Junior High, a short walk or bicycle ride. If tenant has a car, parking available for 1 car in shared driveway.. 1st floor - consists of Living Room, a separate, formal Dining Room - great for entertaining, 1 bathroom with shower, sink & toilet, shared coin-op laundry room w/washer/dryer), fully-equipped, galley style kitchen with large refrigerator, dishwasher, gas stove/oven with range hood, microwave, coffee maker, utensils and dishes. 2nd floor - has 3 bedrooms with 2nd bathroom.

The house provides comfort and convenience since it's within a short distance of campus, public transportation, shopping (Berkeley Bowl and Trader Joe's are close by), recreational and cultural attractions (parks, hiking trails, theaters- Berkeley Repertory & Aurora Theater Company, California Jazz Conservatory and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archives).
