The house is in a quiet, residential part of North Berkeley with lots of parks and trees nearby. It is really spacious, with a large dining room, living room and a large kitchen. There's a large garden out back. The room is on the ground (main) floor and it's spacious, around 15ft x 15ft, with three windows overlooking the backyard (trees, garden, flowers, etc.). The room has a semi-private* bathroom and closet.
This is the largest room in the house. It's very comfortable. The room is on the ground (main) floor and it's spacious, around 15ft x 15ft, with three windows overlooking the backyard (trees, garden, flowers, etc.). It has hardwood floors and is located next to the dining room. In terms of furniture, it's got a desk, a small dresser, and a queen-sized bed and couple other dressers. The room also has a semi-private* bathroom and closet (2ft x 2ft). Rent is $1100 utilities included. The move-in date is August 1st-ish and the move-out date is no later than August 31st. Of course, I'd rather rent the room for the whole month, but I'm open to proposals for shorter terms (3 weeks at least).
*Note that 'semi-private' means that when you close your door, the bathroom is private, but during the day we often leave the door open so others can use it.
The house is really spacious, with a large dining room, living room (with a few chairs and couches for hanging out) and a large kitchen with a breakfast table. Most of the house has hardwood floors. There's a large garden out back where some of us have built some small raised beds (currently growing: kale, tomato, spinach, peas, peppers, and beets). There are some chairs and a table and it's a beautiful reading/breakfast/coffee spot.
There's a piano in the living room and there's usually banjos, guitars, harmonicas lying around for use. There's space to lock bikes to the side of the house, and a driveway that fits two cars as well as plenty of nearby street parking without any restrictions if both spots are taken. We've got a weekly cleaning rotation, and while we understand that people can get busy with work and life, we appreciate when people clean after themselves and help keep the common spaces clean, too.
The onlye caveat about the room is the semi-private bathroom. Since the house is really spacious, the bathroom in the offered bedroom is available for other roommates when the door is open and when the person who occuppies the room is not home.
