The room available has a fresh, clean feeling. It is fully furnished with full sized bed, dresser, desk with chair, night stand and reading lamp. A large antique rug covers almost the entire concrete floor. There's a generous closet. The room is in the lower level of the house with laundry and bathroom nearby. The room faces out on to the landscaped garden, with nearby fruit trees and an outdoor deck. Bathroom has just been redone with custom tile and new fixtures. You can shower or bathe.
I share my 4 bedroom / 2 bath house with a thoughtful, creative 27-year-old indie game designer (they/them) who is also my adult offspring, as well as a very warm and outgoing social worker with a fellowship at UC Berkeley (she/her). I'm a professional artist in my 50's (she/her) working from my backyard studio. The 4th bedroom will be available in mid January and we are looking for someone who is tidy, friendly, and communicates clearly. Ideally in mid 20's- mid 30's.
The house has a large open kitchen with plenty of room for cooking, eating and enjoying the views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate and Marin. It's the heart of the house. We generally cook Sunday brunches together. The living room is comfortable, with lots of sunshine, a large monitor for gaming and online entertainment, and a gas stove. A cleaner comes twice a month to thoroughly clean all the common areas of house.
The garden is landscaped with fruit trees, flowers, vegetables and has two outdoor seating areas: a dining area which can also be used for working at a laptop, as well as a fire pit area with comfy chairs for lounging and socializing. We have a sweet, old Labrador mix dog, as well as two backyard hens, and a bee hive.
The street is one block long and very quiet, tucked away in a safe, residential neighborhood. Excellent grocery stores, restaurants, parks, library and cafes all within a few blocks. Monterey Market, known for outstanding fresh and affordable produce, is close by. This house is one of Berkeley's best neighborhoods because it's secluded but near excellent commercial areas. Plenty of street parking for car, or places to store your bike.
House is located near multiple transit lines. North Berkeley BART station is a pleasant 15-20 minute walk away. You can bike to UC Berkeley in 10-15 minutes or walking takes half hour.
A note on Covid. We are taking safety measures seriously and follow the safety guidelines. If you are working/taking classes remotely, you can use common areas as workspace. During Covid we have added game nights, card readings, and movie nights. Our outdoor areas are great for hosting a friend or two socially distanced.
