About listing

Located in one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most prestigious residential neighborhoods, 40 Domingo offers the exceptional comfort of a luxurious getaway, coupled with the natural beauty of the Claremont District and the vibrant Berkeley lifestyle. Adjacent to the main house, this light-filled Art Deco garden flat was completely renovated in 2013. Every attention was paid to preserving the spectacular architectural detailing while providing the most up-to-date infrastructure. Spacious, this 1,300 square foot ground level flat features beautiful amenities with an indoor-oudoor California feel to it. You will enjoy a large living room with gracious, comfortable mid-century furnishings and appointments, complemented by original artwork by renowned artists Pam Smilow and Gert Mathiesen. This spacious room is filled with windows and has glass french doors that open to a beautifully landscaped formal garden and patio, complete with a gas grill and outdoor gas heating. 40 Domingo offers a relaxed, private, peaceful setting both inside and out. Additionally, 40 Domingo features a fully equipped kitchen with high-end appliances. Striking brick floors brought in from New Orleans add to the charm. Separated from the main living space by a small flight of stairs, 40 Domingo offers a king bedroom sanctuary with French doors that open to an expansive private deck overlooking a protected habitat. Off the main floor, there is a twin bedroom, a beautifully finished bathroom, and a laundry room. Hardwood floors and soft natural light fill the entire space. Located in the coveted Claremont District known for its gorgeous homes and gardens, the home provides a peaceful oasis for relaxation. 40 Domingo is an easy walk to the many charming restaurants, shops and cafes of the Claremont and Elmwood Districts. The Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort are a block away. Stroll to the hip Rockridge District where you will find many cutting edge cuisine venues, organic markets, bookstores, and shops. The house is centrally located within walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus, the Greek Theater, and the Cal Memorial football stadium. The UC Botanical Gardens, Tilden Park, the Lawrence Hall of Science, the Berkeley Marina, and UC's Zellerbach Hall are just a few of the nearby attractions. 40 Domingo is an ideal location to explore the surrounding area. Situated five minute to the Berkeley campus, ten minutes to Chez Panisse, and fifteen minutes to San Francisco, you can enjoy the peacefulness of the local neighborhood while having close proximity to the many surrounding attractions. Although private and quiet, 40 Domingo provides easy access to airports, major freeways, and the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Bridge

    This is a really unique place in Berkeley in a great location. We stayed for the Christmas week with our two kids. The flat has everything you could possibly need to feel at home and the owners (Kathy and Bill) outfitted it with a crib and toddler bed for us. They even had books and toys that were age appropriate. There are two outdoor spaces that are very well cared for and also outfitted as well as the interior so the place is really spacious when you take into account all the outside space. And there is a great park and playground at the school right behind the house as well. The bed upstairs is really comfortable and had the most amazing pillows we've ever slept on. 26 March 2015 - 18:49:12

    We've stayed in two different units here, and we will be back again. It's located in a charming neighborhood near the Claremont Hotel, close to the bookstores and boutiques of College Avenue, but nestled in a quiet, secluded spot. It's a five-star guest experience -- impeccable rooms, luxurious bedding -- with all the little touches that help you to relax and unwind. 26 March 2015 - 15:14:45

    This place is both private and relaxing but also perfect for entertaining. The large living space connected to the beautiful patio and garden was perfect for our family during an extended visit to my hometown. It was easy to have old friends stop by for dinner al fresco and the kitchen was fantastic. The second deck off the main bedroom was so lovely for quiet morning coffee as well. Thanks, Kathy and Bill for such a great place that feels like home. Can't wait to be back! 26 March 2015 - 15:59:05

    This is a beautiful property in a great location. It is charming inside and out. The owners are lovely and were very helpful. There are lots of great restaurants which you can walk to if you're not in heels. It was fun to relax and have dinner on the pretty patio as well. I would highly recommend this place. We hope to come back soon. 08 October 2015 - 21:18:21

    This was by far the nicest home I have had the pleasure to stay at in Berkeley. I rent often for work and travel with my family. The owner greeted us at the door and walked through the house and amenities to make sure we were comfortable. We were treated to a bottle of wine, great fresh ground coffee and cream! This is a hidden gem, jump on it if you get the chance. 22 January 2016 - 16:30:05

    We loved the apartment and especially appreciated Kathy and Bill's approach. They are courteous and accessible. They made us feel welcome and it was very helpful to learn about their favorite spots in the neighborhood. We highly recommend the location as well as their management style for the property. 01 November 2016 - 17:06:00

    While, happily, the description of 40 Domingo was accurate, it can only begin to express what a paradise the apartment is: Elegant yet cozy, spotless and well-maintained, beautifully appointed kitchen and bathroom, luxurious linens and robes, mid-century modern furnishings that work perfectly with the art deco architecture. Kathy and Bill have thought of every detail and anticipated every need. They are always available though not in evidence unless you need them. And such lovely people. Plus the New York Times every morning! The outdoor spaces--three gorgeous terraces in all--feel like an extension of the indoor spaces. The landscaping is sublime. Great BBQ. The only problem with 40 Domingo for a visit to Berkeley is you'll never want to leave the apartment. That said, two great commercial areas are in walking distance--amazing bakeries and restaurants, shopping, movie theater, plus easy drives to the University, Rockridge, Berkeley Rep, Chez Panisse et al. We would recommend this property to everyone! 09 August 2017 - 18:07:00

    I stayed in the 2 bedroom flat for almost 4 months while waiting to move to another city. I was sorely tempted to just stay for good. The flat is beautiful and comfortable, roomy, and in a perfect area for walking to get groceries, coffee, walking trails, etc. I loved the architectural detail the hosts preserved for a classic Berkeley home. It is in a quiet area, which I appreciated. The hosts are wonderful people. I had everything I needed for a happy and relaxed stay. Thank you Kathy and Bill xo. 14 May 2015 - 17:56:47

    This is an oasis that was very hard to leave! I stayed in this lovely, light, warmy appointed place briefly but fell in love with the house, the spectacular location with walking distance to cafes, restaurants, bakeries, UC Berkeley, and parks. The hosts are warm and kind. The garden and patio are lined in lavender and lemon trees. Truly a wonderful get-away. 14 May 2015 - 17:46:07
