Available Dates:

Description

**Note: the exterior is being painted over the next two weeks and we will post new exterior photos at that time.** The house is ideal for families with kids, as we live just two blocks from the highly-rated Marin Elementary and three blocks from Terrace Park. The house is 2 miles from the UC Berkeley campus in the safe and charming community of Albany. In addition, we are only 2 blocks from Solano Ave. (a charming shopping district) and walking distance from Monterey Market (a well regarded produce market and grocery). The house has many period details, including built-in cabinets and hutch in the living room, crown molding throughout, and a Wedgewood range in the kitchen. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and a third bedroom on the second floor. We currently use one of the downstairs bedrooms as an office. Most rooms in the house have been freshly painted. The kitchen is completely functional and well-stocked, but outdated. In addition to the main house, there is a large detached artist’s studio/work space with open beam ceiling and hardwood floors. The back yard is one of our favorite places to spend time. There are fruit trees (plum, apple, pomegranate), a vegetable bed, a grill, a hammock and a picnic area. The high fence makes the yard safe for your well-behaved dog. Included with the rent are wi-fi, regular visits from the gardener, and cleaning service. We have easy access to bus lines, BART, and the freeway.
