About

A short walk or bike-ride along tree-lined streets and early 1900's homes will take you nine blocks to UC Berkeley campus from this Elmwood home.This west-facing 1908 Edwardian duplex has original architectural detail, 9' ceilings, hardwood floors, original pocket-doors, twenty-three windows and lots of light. For many additional photos please email. Located in one of Berkeley's most coveted neighborhoods called 'The Elmwood,' the property is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood in a cul-de-sac with no through-traffic, and only three blocks from College Avenue. You will wake to the sound of birds, not cars! The property is only three blocks away from cafes and stores that line College Avenue in the Elmwood and all the way north to campus and south to Rockridge. San Francisco is about a 20-minute drive without traffic and easily accessible from Rockridge BART which is 10 blocks south on College Ave. The property is on one level, faces west and south, and is comprised of three bedrooms and one bathroom, large expansive dining and living rooms, with original built-ins, 9-foot ceilings, and an entry foyer between living rooms, separated with pocket doors. There is a full laundry room, leading to a private fenced-in patio outside. There's a queen bed in the master bedroom, and one twin currently in the 2nd bedroom. This bed configuration can be changed, and has had two beds in the past for a longer-term stay. The third bedroom has a high-end "American Leather" double-sized sofa-sleeper with a steel base and Tempurpedic mattress. It's a top-of-the-line build - very solid and comfortable. A full-sized washer and a dryer are in the laundry room off the kitchen. Furnished and ready to move into with all bedding, towels, etc., and a fully-equipped kitchen. Strawberry Canyon Recreation Center and outdoor lap and toddler pools are five minutes away, as is the Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort and Spa. There are two children’s parks within a half-block of the property: Bateman Park and a second park set in a quiet redwood grove and green field along with new play structures and sand for kids. Walk, bike, drive or take the bus to campus! 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 students.
