About Jeremy Sherman

Jeremy Sherman, Ph.D., M.P.P. I'm an easy-going social scientist, professor and author, and former non-profit manager and environmental lobbyist. I've taught psychology, sociology, history, English, rhetoric, Advertising and Business Strategy. Currently teaching in an MBA program at California College of the Arts. For 18 years I've been a collaborator on a major origins of life research project with U.C. Berkeley Biological Anthropologist/Neuroscientist, Terrence Deacon. I have written four books and 500 Psychology Today articles. I'm father of three grown children (none at home), partnered, and a jazz bassist/singer performing 3x a week in Berkeley restaurants.

Jeremy Sherman purchased this house in 1996

Why Jeremy Sherman chose Berkeley

Like many I bought this large home when my kids were pre-teens, not foreseeing that they'd fly the coop. I rattled around in its largeness for years, then rented the in-law unit to very satisfied long-term renters.

Recently I realized I could expand the downstairs a little, move into it and rent the top two floors of this house. I just poured $300k into the expansion and renovation which was expertly done.

The house was built in 1924 as part of a development. To save money on planning they would flip blueprints and make a mirror image house, my neighbor's two doors down. Having been in the walls, I can say the work was excellent for the time. An enviable layout and design.

What makes this house unique

After my divorce in 1996, I moved into a converted two room garage and just adored it. To ease the transition for our three children, my ex (now a good friend) and I agreed to keep our large home and take turns staying in it. About a year into the arrangement it suddenly dawned on me to buy my own home. 1830 Sonoma was the first and really only place I visited--love at first sight.

It was the big tree in the front that sold me, the quiet tree lined street, Berkeley's most beautiful library a half-block down, my favorite commercial district three blocks away.

In 1997, the house was in terrible shape, lived in since the 40's by a woman who refused any help with it in the decades before she died at 90. I did a huge remodel then, and though I've lived and travelled broadly (years in Guatemala, Tennessee, Boston, London) couldn't imagine a happier place to live.

The creekside yard is lovely, the neighborhood is safe (I've left car and even house doors unlocked all night by mistake--nothing stolen). The neighbors are dear, parking is effortless (you get a driveway but there's ample street parking too), the weather is perfect, access to UC Berkeley is a breeze.

There are fancier neighborhoods in Berkeley but most are way up in the hills. This neighborhood is to my eyes the sweet spot for convenience and beauty.

The front door is arched. I'm big on faux painting (an earthy homespun look, and though I've painted over the faux interior the outside is subtly fauxed. The front door is round topped. The ceilings are sculpted, there's picture molding on many walls, lots of sweet touches, now all touched up.

Berkeley at its finest

  • 5 of 5
I grew up in Berkeley and wanted to return to the area I was born/raised. This beautiful, very "Berkeley" craftsman style home allowed me to do just that, all in great style, comfort, and with the peace and quiet I remember from my days of walking the neighborhood. The accommodations were spacious, well appointed, and homey and had everything you needed from the kitchen, living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms. Because it was raining, we weren't able to use the deck with barbeque but we will definitely do so the next time we stay at the house! The location of this rental is choice - the ability to walk down to Monterey Market, Solano Avenue, and the Gourmet Ghetto is easy because everything is so close. Needless to say, I absolutely loved my stay in Berkeley and much of it is attributable to this beautiful place.

Great place to stay ! Great location, clean, comfortable, lovely home. We enjoyed the back deck every night. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed to prepare our meals. Very close to great neighborhood for shopping and dining. We found an amazing bakery and great playground. We would love to stay here again.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
This place is very spacious feels more like being at home and not in a rental house.
Jeremy is there for you if needed. House has everything you need for a great vacation.
Large kitchen with pots and pans if you choose to cook. All three bedrooms are very spacious
and with great beds. Large deck has plenty of chairs and a picnic table and a gas grill.
Will stay there again on our next trip to Berkeley.

Roomy house in nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in Berkeley for a wedding and chose this home because of all the great reviews. They were all accurate, and the pictures are also very representative of the home. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is even a large selection of spices. It is in a nice location; not too far from Tilden Park (which is where our wedding took place) and close to UC Berkeley. The owner was very quiet; but easily reachable if needed. I highly recommend this place to others looking for a home to stay in a quiet neighborhood.
