The location is a big draw. The house provides comfort and convenience since it's within a short distance of campus, public transportation, shopping (Berkeley Bowl and Trader Joe's are close by), recreational and cultural attractions (parks, hiking trails, theaters- Berkeley Repertory & Aurora Theater Company, California Jazz Conservatory and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archives).

Owner, a serious plant collector and horticulturist, lives on property, and uses yard space to grow cherished plants. Seeking quiet, responsible, non-partying, conservation-minded tenants.
Property is close to Washington Elementary and Berkeley High Schools, as well as private schools.

DRAWBACK - NO YARD or play space for children to play in or area for adults to hang out in. However, close to parks.
