If you’re looking for a quiet, light-filled retreat in the heart of Berkeley, this cottage fits the bill. Inside, amid the books and Arts & Crafts oak furniture, you’ll see that the original 1908 building was upgraded without sacrificing its craftsman charm. Outside, you’re less than a mile from the UC campus and a seven block stroll from BART. The neighborhood is close to everything -- you can easily walk to Berkeley Rep, Cal Performances and dozens of restaurants from Gather to Breads of India to the Homemade Cafe.
The cottage was renovated by award-winning architects Leger|Wanaselja and features solar panels, low VOC paint, green materials, a tankless water heater, central vacuum, Nest-controlled central heat and a very nice European Sleepworks mattress in the single bedroom. Lovely Arts & Crafts furniture by the Hile Company and Fenton MacLaren throughout.
Kitchen includes dishwasher, gas stove, refrigerator, disposal, burr coffee grinder, Zojirushi rice maker, glass-front toaster and electric kettle. Garden seating in the tiny fenced yard behind the cottage, under mature redwood trees.
Fast wireless internet and excellent coffee are provided.
