The SpaceMy home is located near the freeway and only 13 miles (22km) from the heart of San Francisco – only 20 miles (31km) to the Golden Gate Bridge. A 20 minute walk (1.5 miles/2km) gives you access to the BART train that takes you all over the Bay Area. Across from the station, at the El Cerrito Plaza, there is a Lucky grocery store, Trader Joes, a Starbucks and other shops and restaurants. The home also offers easy access to AC Transit bus service which provides extensive bus transportation throughout the East Bay. For the budget conscious (and who isn't these days) I'm located a mere 1.5 miles from COSTCO. The neighborhood is safe, friendly, residential, and quiet. If you want to explore, all along the BART there are stops that bring you to quaint neighborhoods full of great shops and many excellent restaurants. Downtown San Francisco is a short trip - only a half hour to forty minute ride! You'll have shared access to the bathroom, kitchen, living room, and dining room and free access to wireless internet. I have a washing machine but no dryer however, just hang laundry on the line and it’s dry in no time. We rarely get rain in the SF Bay Area. Guest AccessClean sheets and towels. Free Wifi. Living room and TV. Kitchen and cooking equipment. Washing machine. Interaction with GuestsI enjoy my guests but I respect their level of interaction. I'm a quiet person but I also love learning about my guests, their home countries and their travels around the world.

The NeighborhoodNEIGHBORHOOD: El Cerrito is a hidden gem in East Bay. Very safe neighborhood, quiet and close to Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco. Napa valley is about an hour away. We are located on a quite, residential street and the house is nestled in the foothills of natural reserve. The views are breathtaking, the hiking trails are perfect for people who enjoy the outdoors. El Cerrito means "the little hill" in Spanish, and the town that is perched on the hill above San Francisco Bay offers easy access to Interstate 80 and Interstate 580 to Marin. Hillside homes along the curving streets deliver sweeping views of San Francisco and sunsets over the Golden Gate Bridge. El Cerrito's main shopping corridor is undergoing a rebirth, beginning with Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, which was restored from the former Cerrito Speakeasy Theater. Access to open space and parkland is extensive, with Arlington Park, Cerrito Vista Park, Hillside Natural Area, Huber Park, Poinsett Park, and Tassajara Park & Pottery Studio all nearby. The Ohlone Greenway is a popular trail with hikers and bikers. The University of California, Berkeley is several miles away, and two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations, at El Cerrito Plaza and El Cerrito del Norte, make commuting easy. El Cerrito Plaza is a major shopping center housing grocery stores, restaurants, bookstores, a pharmacy, and smaller mom-and-pop stores. Getting AroundTRANSPORTATION: The closest BART station is about 5 min drive or 24 min walking distance. It's a beautiful walk actually, along vineyards and breathtaking views. We also recommend Uber and/ or Lyft as a cheaper taxi alternative. Just download their app on your smart phone. Other Things to NoteHaving the best of both worlds is PRICELESS: • a gorgeous view in the front - take in those amazing golden sunsets • a hiking trail in the back, starting right off your own backyard • Please note that California is experiencing a SEVERE DROUGHT and asking everyone to be MINDFUL and CONSERVE WATER. We also installed drought tolerant plants and we are in process of building a rain catchment water system. California officials approved unprecedented emergency regulations that allow local law enforcement and water agencies to impose $500-a-day fines on residents and commercial water users who waste water. •WEATHER ADVISORY for San Francisco: Mark Twain famously said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." Seasons in San Francisco don't necessarily follow universal trends. The city can often feel quite chilly, although the temperature rarely drops below freezing. Even when summer arrives, residents know not to leave the house in short sleeves until late summer—that's when San Francisco enjoys its warmest weather. Temperatures remain moderate year round: 51 - 65°F (10.5 - 18.3 °C). Late summer and fall are the most popular times to visit the city: 68 - 70°F (20 - 21°C). The period of warm weather is known as “Indian Summer," an annual miracle that San Franciscans look forward to all year long. The weather brings favorite festivals and events along with it. Summers generally range from 53 - 69°F (11.6 - 20.5 °C). Summer days often begin with fog which usually burns off by the afternoon. It rarely rains during summer months. Winters are mild. They are somewhat wet, but not unbearable: 46 - 48°F ( 7.7 - 8.8 °C). No matter the season, it is always SMART to DRESS in LAYERS and be prepared for sudden weather changes when in San Francisco Bay Area.

Please note that the deck functions as a living space, and the television is inside the master bedroom. We live in our home, so you will notice some of our belongings there. We have an extra dresser that is empty and is for just your own use. This is the dresser that the TV sits on. We feel that this is actually a bonus in comparison to some other places we have stayed. You'll also notice that we have a fully stocked kitchen with excellent knifes, plenty of silverware, blender, spices, mixer, pots and pans. We have stayed at some places that have one pan and one spoon, so we know how important it is to have the utensils you need. We hope you enjoy your stay and please feel free to ask us any questions regarding our home to ensure that you will have a perfect stay. Thanks!

The SpaceWelcome! This home is featured in "NorCalMod", a book on Mid-Century Modern architecture! This steel frame home has walls of glass and is built on top of two steel I-Beams that rest ABOVE a creek ... yes, the creek runs under the home! The home was designed by Beverly David Thorne, the last living architect to have participated in Arts & Architecture's famous Case Study Houses from 19!45 thru 19!66, a project to introduce modern architecture to the public. He designed houses, most on steep hillsides and built out of steel. He is most famous for the "Brubeck House" that was featured on the Ed Sullivan show. With the exception of updated flooring, appliances and the downstairs addition, this house is in its original condition. The steel construction design of the home gives it incredible strength and durability. This also allows the support of glass walls which provide an outstanding view of majestic trees and a garden setting from the front as well as inspiring views of the Bay, San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Mount Tampalias from the back. When it rains, you can also witness a breath taking creek that flows magnificently under the house. The architecture of this home is what stands out. It is considered a "floating" home design and it feels like you are living mid air. Deer come frequently to enjoy the land and add to the serene and inspiring aura of this property. There is a meandering walkway to the front of the home which parallels the creek which provides a zen like peaceful feeling when entering the property. ACCOMODATIONS This house is a 2014 square foot, 4+ bedroom, 2 bathroom single family home. In addition, there is 1200 square feet of decking to relax and enjoy the views! There are beds in three of the bedrooms plus one extra room. The master bedroom has a king bed with a high-end organic European Sleepworks mattress and a private bathroom. The second room has a queen bed and the third room has a full size bed, both with European Sleepworks mattresses. The fourth room includes a futon couch which can convert into a bed. There is an additional room downstairs that serves as an work space. Please note, the downstairs space has no door separating this area from the upper level, only a spiral staircase. However, it still feels very private and boasts amazing creek and forest views. The second bath is on the main level and has a shower over a tub. The main room is an open-concept living room/dining room/kitchen area. It boasts incredible views and has plenty of room for great conversations, working, or just relaxing. Furnishings include a large Z Gallerie soft leather sectional, authentic Starbucks velvet lounge chairs, and a dining table which seats up to 8 (possibly more if requested ahead of time). Front room has a 42" TV with Blue Ray player and unlimited access to Hulu and Netflix. The master bedroom TV has Hulu and Netflix as well. The kitchen is stocked with all the basics needed for cooking and serving and includes a Bosch dishwasher to make clean-up easier. If you anticipate a need for a certain appliances ahead of time, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. THE NEIGHBORHOOD Located near the Berkeley hills, the house is in a great location. Minutes from the freeway, UC Berkeley, Tilden Park, and San Francisco.

    The SpaceOur home is warm, comfortable, and inviting. Small and cozy at about 950 sq. ft., it's one block away from and bordering El Cerrito. It's a wonderful place to call home during your stay and a great base from which to explore the gorgeous San Francisco Bay Area. Like many homes, it reflects the people who live here. Lots of art work, mementos, and books adorn our space! This is a safe, stable, diverse, and tolerant neighborhood with great neighbors, a wonderful mix of long-time residents and young families raising their little ones. I grew up here, so I know. People are frequently out around dinner time, taking walks, strolling with their children, or walking their dogs. Depending on traffic and your specific destination, we are 15-25 minutes away by car from Berkeley, 20-30 minutes from Oakland, and 25-45 minutes from San Francisco. Ours is a safe neighborhood with friendly neighbors and ample street parking. And of course the nearby culture is abundant. Some house details (please view all of our listing photos!): two bedrooms, queen bed in the main bedroom and a day bed with a trundle in the second room. The trundle raises up, so it can be pushed up next to the day bed to make a double bed. For longer stays the home is ideal for 2 people; for weekends and week-long stays the second bedroom gives capacity to sleep 3-4. There is an additional $7 per-night charge for a fourth person. The kitchen was remodeled in 2012 and includes quartz composite (Caesarstone) counters, and new cabinets, sink, faucet, and range hood. We love our kitchen--it's light and sunny, cook-friendly and well-outfitted with all the pots, pans, knives, dishes, appliances, etc. that you'd ever need (well, in my judgement anyway!). There's a pretty new refrigerator (with icemaker) that we bought in July 2015. Gas stove (of course) with convection feature. Small convection oven on counter (with pizza settings!), along with a small microwave, Cuisinart food processor, small drip and French Press coffee makers, a Kitchen Aide mixer, and a VitaMixer. Oh, sushi mats to roll sushi if you're into that like we are. The small and cute bathroom has a bathtub and shower. There's a 48-inch flatscreen in the living room. We don't have cable because the cost isn't worth it to us. We use an outdoor HD antenna and we get the local network and PBS channels all in High Definition. We have Wi-fi and DVD and CD players. And a Playstation 3. We have a great backyard! You'll enjoy hanging out on the deck, eating, barbecuing, entertaining, and relaxing. There's an excellent gas Weber Genesis grill with a side burner, an outdoor heater, two comfortable chaise lounges, a gravity chair, benches all around, and two dining tables and a cafe table that combine to seat 12 plus folks. On the other end of the yard, under the protective shade of a big cedar tree, is a smaller circular slate patio area with a firepit and chairs. This is a nice place to repose when the heat is too much and the sun too glaring, or at night circled around a fire. And then there's the garden. You can see in the photos that there's lots going on: lavender, roses, alstroemeria, salvia, borage, hydrangea and more. Our garden is blessed with bees, butterflies and birds Bulbs come out in the spring. In the corners of the yard's west end are the elderly regal cedar tree and a young Japanese maple. On the deck are potted plants, where we grow tomatoes, sage, basil, blueberries, and whatever the seasons allow. Walk across the balcony/middle deck and take the stairs down to the lower deck and the raised bed garden. The gate on this (north) side of the house leads to a path bordered by a bamboo fence. Go around the corner, and walk one block to San Pablo Ave. for errands, travels, and adventures. Guest AccessGuests may access all rooms in the main house. The basement and the garage are not accessible. Interaction with GuestsBecause we make the entire house available, we are usually out of town when guests book our home. We leave a helpful Guest Guide with information about and recommendations for shopping, restaurants, activities, and fun things to do. That said, Paul will usually be available by phone or email. When he isn't, one of his adult sons or daughters will be reachable. Most likely one of them will be your concierge, will greet you and help you settle in. They live 1.5 miles away in the neighboring city of El Cerrito. The NeighborhoodThe Richmond Annex is known for being a safe, stable, diverse, and tolerant neighborhood with great neighbors, a wonderful mix of long-time residents and young families raising their little ones. I grew up here, so I know. People are frequently out around dinner time, taking walks with their children and walking their dogs. Getting AroundWe are located between the El Cerrito Del Norte and El Cerrito Plaza BART stations. It's a 22-minute, 1.1 mile walk to Del Norte and a 27-minute, 1.4 mile walk to the El Cerrito Plaza station. You can get to either station by taking the AC Transit 72 bus, for which there is a stop one block away. Other Things to NoteMolly is our neighbor's dog who lives behind us. Sometimes she barks if she happens to be sitting on her back stoop (which happens a few minutes a day) and you walk across our balcony while she's there.
