About the property

40 Domingo Delivers An Experience Worthy Of Its Sister Location, 36 Domingo

Located in one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most prestigious residential neighborhoods, 40 Domingo offers the exceptional comfort of a luxurious getaway, coupled with the natural beauty of the Claremont District and the vibrant Berkeley lifestyle.

Adjacent to the main house, this light-filled Art Deco garden flat was completely renovated in 2013. Every attention was paid to preserving the spectacular architectural detailing while providing the most up-to-date infrastructure.

Spacious, this 1,300 square foot ground level flat features beautiful amenities with an indoor-oudoor California feel to it. You will enjoy a large living room with gracious, comfortable mid-century furnishings and appointments, complemented by original artwork by renowned artists Pam Smilow and Gert Mathiesen. This spacious room is filled with windows and has glass french doors that open to a beautifully landscaped formal garden and patio, complete with a gas grill and outdoor gas heating. 40 Domingo offers a relaxed, private, peaceful setting both inside and out.

Additionally, 40 Domingo features a fully equipped kitchen with high-end appliances. Striking brick floors brought in from New Orleans add to the charm.

Separated from the main living space by a small flight of stairs, 40 Domingo offers a king bedroom sanctuary with French doors that open to an expansive private deck overlooking a protected habitat. Off the main floor, there is a twin bedroom, a beautifully finished bathroom, and a laundry room. Hardwood floors and soft natural light fill the entire space.

Located in the coveted Claremont District known for its gorgeous homes and gardens, the home provides a peaceful oasis for relaxation. 40 Domingo is an easy walk to the many charming restaurants, shops and cafes of the Claremont and Elmwood Districts. The Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort are a block away. Stroll to the hip Rockridge District where you will find many cutting edge cuisine venues, organic markets, bookstores, and shops. The house is centrally located within walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus, the Greek Theater, and the Cal Memorial football stadium. The UC Botanical Gardens, Tilden Park, the Lawrence Hall of Science, the Berkeley Marina, and UC's Zellerbach Hall are just a few of the nearby attractions.

40 Domingo is an ideal location to explore the surrounding area. Situated five minute to the Berkeley campus, ten minutes to Chez Panisse, and fifteen minutes to San Francisco, you can enjoy the peacefulness of the local neighborhood while having close proximity to the many surrounding attractions. Although private and quiet, 40 Domingo provides easy access to airports, major freeways, and the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Bridge

Paradise in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

While, happily, the description of 40 Domingo was accurate, it can only begin to express what a paradise the apartment is: Elegant yet cozy, spotless and well-maintained, beautifully appointed kitchen and bathroom, luxurious linens and robes, mid-century modern furnishings that work perfectly with the art deco architecture. Kathy and Bill have thought of every detail and anticipated every need. They are always available though not in evidence unless you need them. And such lovely people. Plus the New York Times every morning! The outdoor spaces--three gorgeous terraces in all--feel like an extension of the indoor spaces. The landscaping is sublime. Great BBQ. The only problem with 40 Domingo for a visit to Berkeley is you'll never want to leave the apartment. That said, two great commercial areas are in walking distance--amazing bakeries and restaurants, shopping, movie theater, plus easy drives to the University, Rockridge, Berkeley Rep, Chez Panisse et al. We would recommend this property to everyone!

Great location in Berkeley waking distance to restaurants and shops. Urban yet quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment and especially appreciated Kathy and Bill's approach. They are courteous and accessible. They made us feel welcome and it was very helpful to learn about their favorite spots in the neighborhood. We highly recommend the location as well as their management style for the property.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the nicest home I have had the pleasure to stay at in Berkeley. I rent often for work and travel with my family. The owner greeted us at the door and walked through the house and amenities to make sure we were comfortable. We were treated to a bottle of wine, great fresh ground coffee and cream! This is a hidden gem, jump on it if you get the chance.

Fantastic place to stay in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a great location. It is charming inside and out. The owners are lovely and were very helpful. There are lots of great restaurants which you can walk to if you're not in heels. It was fun to relax and have dinner on the pretty patio as well. I would highly recommend this place. We hope to come back soon.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the 2 bedroom flat for almost 4 months while waiting to move to another city. I was sorely tempted to just stay for good. The flat is beautiful and comfortable, roomy, and in a perfect area for walking to get groceries, coffee, walking trails, etc. I loved the architectural detail the hosts preserved for a classic Berkeley home. It is in a quiet area, which I appreciated. The hosts are wonderful people. I had everything I needed for a happy and relaxed stay. Thank you Kathy and Bill xo.

A Heavenly Haven

  • 5 of 5

This is an oasis that was very hard to leave! I stayed in this lovely, light, warmy appointed place briefly but fell in love with the house, the spectacular location with walking distance to cafes, restaurants, bakeries, UC Berkeley, and parks. The hosts are warm and kind. The garden and patio are lined in lavender and lemon trees. Truly a wonderful get-away.
