Rates from USD $6900 | Monthly

House | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From May 1, 2024


A short walk or bike-ride along tree-lined streets and early 1900's homes will take you nine blocks to the UC Berkeley campus from this Elmwood location. Secluded in a quiet cul-de-sac, this large and spacious 1908 Edwardian duplex is replete with original architectural detail such as 9' ceilings, pocket-doors, coved ceilings, built-ins, and twenty-three windows that allow for lots of light. For additional photos & information, please send a message. Located in one of Berkeley's most coveted neighborhoods called 'The Elmwood,' the property is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood with no through-traffic and only three blocks from College Avenue. You will wake to the sound of birds, not cars, as the house is tucked away with cul-de-sacs in front and behind, so traffic doesn't find its way here. The hub of Elmwood's commercial district is only a 5-minute walk away and it's where you will find an abundance of cafes and stores that line College Avenue all the way to the UC Berkeley campus, and south, to the North Oakland and Rockridge shopping districts. San Francisco is about a 15-20-minute drive without traffic and is easily accessible from Rockridge BART also which is located 10 blocks south on College Ave. The property is comprised of two duplexes, and this one is on the ground floor with all rooms on the one level. There are about 3-4 steps to enter the main entrance as shown in photos, where the property faces west onto a quiet private cul-de-sac that looks the same as it did in 1908 when the houses here were built. Tucked behind a couple of houses across the street, you will find a much-loved redwood and children's park which is less than 2 minutes from the house. The duplex has three bedrooms and one bathroom, a large expansive living area consisting of the dining room off kitchen, and a living room which is beyond the entry foyer. All three areas can be open or closed off via the original double pocket doors. There is a full laundry room, with a top-of-the line new washer and very reliable dryer, beyond which lead to a private fenced-in patio outdoors. This is a lovely area to dine al fresco on warm summer days. Currently, there is a queen bed in the primary bedroom, along with a large chest of drawers and a closet. In the second bedroom, there's a set of bunk-beds and and a single twin bed in the third bedroom. Each of the these two rooms have walk-in closets, and both have desks, chairs and lamps. The property is furnished with high end beds and ready to move into with all bedding, towels, etc., as well as a fully-equipped kitchen. Strawberry Canyon Recreation Center and outdoor adult lap and kids' pools are five minutes away, as is the Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort and Spa. There are two children’s parks within 50-75 yards of the house: the first is across the street, secluded behind a row of houses, and the other is to the north of the property and only a three-minute walk. Bateman Park is an excellent children's park complete with play structure, toys, picnic tables, redwood grove and a field. It is not easy to find due to the fact that it is hidden behind homes which results it being known mostly to locals only and therefore less crowded and more intimate than other area parks. Walk, bike, drive, or take the bus to campus! It is only a fifteen-minute walk along some of Berkeley's most love streets in the Elmwood. The Elmwood is an upscale part of Berkeley and a residential versus student housing area. Quiet and away from it all in a secluded location, yet just a couple of blocks to everything. Ideal for visiting faculty family, sabbatical visitors, or a responsible, quiet group of academics. Please inquire for more photos and or reach out to me via whatsup for additional information.
