Located in the hills above the Claremont Hotel the light filled flat is the entire lower floor of a very private home. There is a separate entrance through a hand made gate.
'The look is rustic elegant, with limestone on the floor, slabs of sandstone as hearths, and beautiful old wood for the exposed beams and doors. The influences are Mediterranean and early Monterey with a dash of Southwest.' Diablo Magazine's July 2008 'More Heart Than Ego'

Why Gillian Eversole Servais chose Berkeley
The Berkeley hills offer one of the most relaxing and beautiful locations. A semi private driveway leads you to this country setting just minutes from downtown Berkeley, The University of California at Berkeley and San Francisco. The site attracted me because from one side the view is of the SF bay and the Golden Gate and from the other side it is a private, wooded hillside. It is truly the best of both worlds.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We arrived back in UK this afternoon, we had a great time traveling down the coast and saw tremendous views and quite a bit of wildlife. Our holiday started perfectly in Berkeley, lovely apartment, very well situated for everything around the Bay Area and of course last and certainly not least was the wonderful view from the balcony. Not sure that photos do it justice.
Thank you very much also for returning the deposit so promptly, we received both transactions although only today for the 2nd one on our return home.
We will certainly recommend your apartment to anybody in UK wishing to visit San Francisco area.
Thank you and regards,
Kim, Alison , Dawn and Allan
