If you’re looking to work in an authentic slice of Berkeley, this 1915 Craftsman house located in the heart of the beautiful Thousand Oaks neighborhood is the place! Four can work comfortably around the authentic Mid-Century kitchen table while another group collaborates at the couches. Even though the TV has its own room for more intimate presentations, one wall is open to the living room so others can be involved if needed. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances you’ll need to prepare lunch. If you want to eat in the fresh air, the spacious backyard has a table and chairs for outdoor dining. There is even a Meyer lemon tree with fruit available to pick! The back-story: I grew up in this home, recently inherited it, and live here part-time with my dog and teenager. All the rooms have a new coat of paint and the hardwood floors refinished to give the house a fresh feel. Much of the furniture and décor remains, from the Mid-Century nesting tables to the 70’s macrame lamp shade. There is parking available in the driveway or on the street in front of the house. (Please do refrain from parking in front of neighbors’ homes). Bustling Solano Avenue is just a couple of blocks away, which has all the amenities you'll need for your workday. There you can pick up groceries at Andronico's Community Market, take-out food from a variety of restaurants, coffee at Peet's or Starbucks, or even last-minute meeting/office supplies at Payn's Stationary. Needing to stretch your legs and/or clear your mind at any moment during your workday? The surrounding residential streets beckon you for a restorative stroll among the beautiful houses, gardens, and yes, many oak trees. And you'll probably meet a few squirrels along the way as well. The perfect way to brainstorm a brilliant new idea.
