The room available is very clean and was recently painted. There are 3 large windows with new curtains. The room is fully furnished with twin 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. I provide linens and towels. 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 a 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 my wonderful 25 year old son. We are all friendly and enjoy meeting new people. I'm a professional artist and my son is an indie game developer. We have a sweet, old Labrador mix dog, as well as a small flock of backyard hens and a bee hive. The house has large open kitchen with plenty of room for cooking, eating and enjoying the views of San Francisco, Golden Gate and Marin. Living room is comfortable, with lots of sunshine, a large monitor for gaming and online entertainment, and a gas stove. The garden is landscaped with fruit trees, flowers, vegetables and has outdoor seating. A cleaner comes twice a month to thoroughly clean all the common areas of house.
The street is one block long and very quiet, tucked away in a safe, residential neighborhood. I feel comfortable walking in the neighborhood at night. Excellent grocery stores, restaurants, parks, library and cafes all within a few blocks. This 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. The H Bus is just 5 minutes walk and takes you directly into San Francisco during commuting hours. The other bus lines go to downtown Berkeley and UC Berkeley, as well as other East Bay destinations. 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 about a half hour. I'm happy to help you find activities to do while here so you get to know the area from the perspective of a local!
