Are you a UC Berkeley student, young professional, grizzled fishing boat captain, or really just any type of person who isn't a serial murderer? Are you interested in living in a nicely furnished room that includes a walk-in closet, hardwood floors and one of the two window screens in the entire home? Do you have $1500 a month you're trying to get rid of? Well then you're in luck because my current housemate has betrayed me and decided to move out now that he is getting his own place with his lovely girlfriend, leaving behind his room in this amazing home.
In addition to the room, you will also have access to several common areas so stunning they just might knock your socks off (also your shoes but that's just like a house rule, not a result of you being surprised)
· Kitchen with not one but two sinks AND a warming drawer, which is a drawer that is like, warmer than the others. Also there's a rug that looks like an egg and if you don't find this compelling you should probably find a different place to rent.
· Living room with a fireplace (I don't know if it works please don't start any fires), tasteful decorations and so many comfortable places to lounge on.
· A completely unremarkable dining room. Just messing, it has amazing views of San Francisco, some bridges, and the back yard.
· Oh yeah there's also a back yard, it's like an enchanted forest and sometimes deer frolic in its verdant expanse. Like seriously, I saw an ad the next door neighbors put up about renting their room and it has a picture of a deer in the driveway here. That's false advertising on their part, this is the house the deer come to, not next door. Don't be deceived.
· Hella closets
"Wow," you're probably thinking, "what an amazing home!" It's true. It is. If that's not enough, it's also incredibly close to everything you'd ever want to do in Berkeley. You can walk to the UC campus in ten minutes, be in the Gourmet Ghetto in fifteen, or the Downtown Berkeley BART in twenty. Also, since I can't figure out a better place to put it -- all utilities are included. The house is powered by 100% renewable energy and the WiFi is a modest 200-700MB Fiber Internet.
If you start thinking about chore wheels, then get out of here. As long as you wash your own dishes and don't live like a pig or whatever messy animal you could be, this house is periodically maintained by a lovely house cleaner.
[this piece brought to you by the traitor housemate, whom you will be replacing. what's better than a review from the person who was in your shoes three years ago? this house maybe.]
