Reviews:- 20 Reviews
Two bedroom, cozy, comfortable craftsman -A vegetarian/vegan home for years (please do not bring meat into the house for either cooking or storage. Eat whatever you like when out and about!). Eggs, dairy and bee products are fine, although you may enjoy trying coconut cream, nut or goat milks and cheeses as they are reputed to be generally better for digestibility.. - Staying in Berkeley is arguably nicer that staying in San Francisco when visiting the SF Bay Area. In the East Bay, the temperature is warmer by about ten degrees F than nearby San Francisco. "The coldest winter I ever spent was Summer in San Francisco." Mark Twain. The inversion layer causes fog which can be chilly, (especially in the summer). Berkeley is warmer, however many summer mornings have a fog that normally burns off by noon. -Close to fabulous Fourth Street shops and restaurants, Bette's Diner, Peet's and the Apple Store in Berkeley's Oceanview neighborhood. One of the older neighborhoods of Berkeley, full of charming homes and long time residents. -Easy access to buses (UC Berkeley and SF downtown), easy freeway access and a 99% walk-ability rating. A 10-15 minute walk (.9 mile) to North Berkeley BART (and SF morning carpool) -We accept most pets -Private Entry with mud porch and rear exit door to the yard -Large living-room with a working fireplace, couch, and a couch that converts into a single bed. -There is a playable upright piano -Two bedrooms, furnished with double beds, desks etc. The bedrooms have plenty of light. -Tiled bathroom- with separate shower and bathtub -Large eat-in kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator, spacious sink, plenty of cabinets, booth benches, oak table, dishwasher, granite counter tops. Vegetarian cook books, toaster and includes pots pans, mixing bowls, juicer on request, crock pot, dishes etc. -A front loading washing machine on site. There are a few folding racks to hang laundry to dry as well as a very small drier that fits less than half of a full load from the washer. Large appliances are to be used between 7PM and noon, to work with the solar array and utilities pricing systems. -Street parking, no permits are required in this neighborhood. There is street cleaning - two days in the month, the first Monday and Tuesday each month. - Owner lives on the property, in a private addition. -Shared small sunny yard (garden- a work in progress)- do not consider the yard, as it is under development. -No smoking in the home or on the property -I just raised the pet fee as I had an allergic guest and had to pay $250 for deep cleaning to remove cat dander.
