Entry hall leads to the gorgeous living room, French doors to the garden, dining room with doors & windows facing south, breakfast room & kitchen. There is a large en-suite bedroom as well as laundry room + smaller bedroom with remodeled bath, shown as an office. Upstairs are 2 en-suite bedrooms.

The driveway enters from Claremont Blvd, leading to carport & garage with access near the kitchen. Just ½ block away is Monkey Island Park, a haven for people with dogs, socializing, snoozing or neighborhood gatherings. The various cul-de-sacs create less-traveled streets and a lovely neighborhood.

about this


Home to one of the most prestigious universities in the country, Berkeley offers the intellectual and cultural stimulation from its campus -- which is within walking distance of downtown. Many Berkeley neighborhoods were established in the 1920s, with quiet, tree-lined streets, brown-shingled homes, and lushly landscaped yards. In Thousand Oaks, the original developers preserved ancient oak trees and left rock outcroppings intact. Elmwood, with its thriving business district, remains one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods. In Claremont, the Claremont Hotel, a gleaming white Victorian-era landmark, has provided generations of Bay Area residents with a luxurious getaway.

Berkeley has long been at the forefront of culinary innovation. Locals flock to the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea location. For residents who like to savor their meals at home, small retail districts sprinkled throughout Berkeley allow them to shop like Europeans, going from store to store to purchase everything they need. Those in a hurry can always visit major grocery stores nearby.

Neighborhood green spaces abound throughout Berkeley, from small community gardens to the Berkeley Rose Garden -- which boasts more than 3,000 rose bushes. The gem of the area is 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park, with its miles of biking and hiking trails and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza.
