Born in England, but I've lived in California most of my life - it's where I went to grad school (2 degrees from UC Berkeley). I love the Bay Area for its scenery, mild climate, culture, food, and outdoor activities. I enjoy providing comfortable artistically-decorated accommodation and welcoming visitors to their "home from home". Hiking and jazz are my favorite things to do in my spare time.
The home is on a tree-lined quiet residential street yet is within easy and convenient walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus, many great restaurants and coffee shops, grocery shopping, and public transport. It has a "walk score" of 86 - meaning "most errands can be accomplished on foot."
This home has real 1920's "Berkeley" character, and there are 5 mature redwood trees right on the property. It's in one of the most desirable, sought-after and convenient areas of Berkeley.
University of California, Berkeley, campus is 5-8 minutes' walk away
The townhome is at the foot of "Holy Hill" where the schools of the Pacific School of Religion are located.
