Light cooking possible - induction burner and toaster oven present. Very sunny and peaceful space. Full size refrigerator. Share full bathroom with shower in main house. Full kitchen in house available to share as well for when you want to cook more. Share backyard with mom (20+ year science teacher), two teens (part time) and a friendly miniature schnauzer. Quiet, gentle household. Home is close to bart (15 min walk) and bus (5 min walk). UC Berkeley is a 35 min bike ride (5.4 miles away). I am 55 minutes from UC Davis by car - also accessible by Amtrak - station is 3.2 miles away and can be accessed via bart. Downtown SF is 16 miles, accessible by bart.
