FURNISHED executive rental, available February 1.
Striking contemporary home with fantastic gardens and city views, tucked away from the world in the exclusive Claremont Court neighborhood. This 4br/3.5 bathroom home has been lovingly updated and tastefully furnished. It’s very private, with an enclosed front courtyard, landscaped backyard with hot tub, soaring ceilings, electric vehicle charging station, and 2 car garage. It’s available FURNISHED ONLY.
A wooden fence and gate under a green wall of olive, bamboo, and maple trees leads to the front entrance for the home. Once you close the gate behind you, you are in a lush and sunny front courtyard, with built-in benches, a wide flower bed, and a two-level patio off the kitchen with a bbq and patio seating for 6. A covered entryway leads to the front door of the home, which opens into the top level of the house.
From the front door, you immediately step into a wide foyer and main living area, with soaring ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and exposed architectural beams. On the left is a large, bright formal living room, with several modern couches and a built-in wall unit with mounted TV and gas fireplace. On the right is a dining area with a round table for 6, and a wall of built-in cabinets, a low built-in buffet, and a lovely window with tree-top views. Tall glass patio doors open out from the dining area to a patio with lovely garden and city views and bar seating for 3.
The stylish kitchen is a chef’s dream, large and fully kitted out with anything you need for entertaining or just making elaborate (or simple!) dinners at home. It runs almost the entire length of the house and has an expansive center island. In addition to being an amazing prep space, this center island holds a 6-burner gas stove, bar sink, tons of storage, and bar seating for 3 at the far end. The kitchen has floor to ceiling custom cabinetry, top of the line appliances including a Kenmore professional fridge, double ovens, dishwashers, wine refrigerator, built in microwave and toaster oven, warming drawer, and a small kitchen desk. At the far end, large glass patio doors open out from the kitchen to the front courtyard for fantastic indoor/outdoor living.
This level also has a half bathroom and interior access to the 2-car garage.
From the main level, a central stairway with three-story windows looking out over the Bay and beyond leads down to the lower floors of the home. The next level down has two master bedroom suites – perfect mirror images of each other – separated by the central stairway. Both bedrooms are large, 1 with a queen bed, the other a king, blackout shades, spacious walk-in closets, and 1 has a built-in bookshelf along the interior wall. They each have an spacious ensuite bathroom with subway tile and shower over tub, and both have glass patio doors that lead out to a shared balcony overlooking the backyard. This balcony is outfitted with a lush, flowering veggie box filled with herbs and veggies for your culinary adventures. Between the two master suites is a laundry room and a large linen closet.
Down one more level are two more bedrooms, again separated by the central staircase. One is set up as a full at-home gym, with a hidden murphy bed along the interior wall. The other is a guest bedroom, with a home-office set up along one wall plus a queen bed. There’s a full bathroom in the hallway between these two rooms.
Down the final half flight of stairs is a bright den/media room, with high ceilings, a built-in dog door, a sleeper sofa and Apple TV. Large french doors open out from the den to a large rear patio and outdoor paradise!
On the left is a large hot tub under a private gazebo. Stone stairs flanked with flowering citrus trees lead to a sunny backyard with lounge chairs, hammock, and a canopied dining area with live-edge oak table and seating for 10. The dining area is hung with bistro lights with 2nd Weber grill and prep space.
Wonderful Berkeley location. Incredibly private, yet just a few blocks from the Claremont Hotel, Cal Campus, and all the great Elmwood shops and restaurants. Walk to Fournee for your morning croissant, then hike the Stonewall Panoramic Trail – just a few minutes from your doorstep!
Available fully furnished February 1. Some bedroom furniture can be switched/removed, as necessary for your situation.
