Oakland House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Location, location, location! You are 1 1/2 blocks to everything: Bus to CAL, BART to the city, Hwy 24 on ramp, and many great places to eat, from burritos to oysters. Yet our street is quiet and is lined with beautiful, well-maintained century old homes. This is a safe walker's paradise with a Walk Score of 83.
Our 2000 sq. foot home was built in 1911 and has been upgraded extensively with high end appliances in the new kitchen, custom stained glass above the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, and gorgeous double paned windows [including a large opening skylight in the upstairs hall], letting in tons of light. There are 2 small rental units on the property as well, one of which is occupied by the owner.
The large living room has a wood burning fireplace, comfortable seating, good reading lights, and TV with cable. French doors lead into the newly updated dining room with box beam ceiling and large oak table, seating eight. Both rooms offer plenty of space to entertain or just stretch out and relax.
French doors open from the chef-inspired kitchen- including Wolf stove, Sub Zero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher, to the deck and private garden oasis, including your own herb garden. A Weber charcoal grill and a terra cotta fire pit make it easy to hang out and entertain. Great for a romantic dinner, reunion, or just family time. There is a newly installed powder room just off the kitchen.
All three bedrooms are upstairs: One with a queen sized bed and private tiny 1/2 bath [blue room], one room with double bed and sitting area, and a large third bedroom furnished with 2 single beds. The washer [Bosch] and dryer are in the upstairs hall, making laundry a breeze. The bathroom was recently remodeled: It has a jacuzzi tub, separate shower, marble tile, and custom stained glass window.

About The Owner
I am a Berkeley native and have owned this home for 37 years. I have watched the neighborhood evolve from a post-BART construction site to the vibrant, pedestrian-friendly destination that it is today.
The Owner purchased this house in 1975
