This apartment is the top floor of a stand-alone house on a residential street in Berkeley, one block from Shattuck Ave and the Gourmet Ghetto, including Chez Panisse, Corso, Cesar, Caravaggio Gelateria, Gregoire, the Cheeseboard, Phil's Coffee, the original Peet's Coffee, and many more fabulous Berkeley establishments. Walgreen's and an upscale grocery store (was Andronico's, now is called "Safeway Neighborhood Market") are also a block away so you can stock up for your stay.
A 10 minute walk takes you to downtown Berkeley where there is more shopping, more restaurants, and the BART (subway); a 5 minute walk takes you to the north side of the UC Berkeley campus. Downtown San Francisco is a 20 minute BART ride or a 25 minute drive away.
The apartment includes 2 BR, 1 BA, Dining Room, Living Room, Kitchen, Deck, Spacious Backyard, and a Covered Parking Spot. This is a classic Berkeley House circa 1910 with all the charm of the neighborhood enhanced with modern furnishings, wireless internet, and modern upgrades.
Access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu Premium catalogs in the living room and master bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen with top-notch appliances and cooking utensils. Washer and dryer are also included. Since these photos were taken, there is a new stainless steel gas stove (5 burners, 2 ovens) and we've renovated the bathroom with a new vanity and a modern stone-tiled shower. We've also added a 150 square foot beautiful deck right off the kitchen for outdoor dining and relaxation. In addition to the backyard parking space, there is also easy street parking.
This apartment is also dog-friendly for well-behaved dogs! There is a fenced in backyard as well as many nearby off-leash parks for your pooch. Both Tilden Regional Park and Point Isabelle Regional Park (the largest and most scenic dog park in the country), offer off-leash trails and are 10 minute drives from the house.
The apartment is very airy with great windows and tons of natural light. The whole place is very charming and cozy. Perfect for 2 couples or a family! We are non-smokers and we have a short-haired dog.
