Sterling Avenue Sublet

A lovely room has become available in the fabulous Berkeley Hills. Do you know anyone looking for a comfortable, partially furnished, light-filled bedroom overlooking the Bay in a wonderful and spacious two story home? (It’s my old room in Berkeley)


Room on the downstairs floor of a two story house, off the downstairs deck with personal kitchen and optional private entrance available from side walkway. Big window that lets in lots of light and looks onto a backyard of trees and kiwi vines.

Full-sized bed, sheets, pillows and comforter are included.

Work desk and chair, closet rack and shelf, downstairs dining table, some pots, pans and kitchen items also included.

Extra deep storage area available in under-stair room as well.

Rent is $690 per month (plus $40-$50 utilities). 6.5 month sublet, available immediately through April 20, 2017. Long term preferred but short-term okay.

Located in the Berkeley Hills at 1168 Sterling Ave, between Shasta and Whitaker Avenues.

4 bedrooms shared with 4 other lovely, quiet roommates.

Shared bathroom upstairs (2 roommates). Washer and dryer are located in the downstairs kitchen, accessible by side stairs and downstairs deck. Larger kitchen, living room, dining room, patio and upper deck upstairs as well.

Bamboo walkway from street to private patio, one outdoor deck off the living room and a downstairs deck off the second floor. Large (but vertical) backyard with access to pedestrian walkway (Stevenson Path). House is surrounded by trees and very shielded from neighboring houses with a view of the San Francisco Bay and Oakland below.

Closest BART stations are Downtown Berkeley and North Berkeley stops; two blocks from 65/67 Bus line stop. We estimate it’s about a 20/30 minute walk down the hill and a 35-45 minute walk back up. Very easily accessible by car, close to Shattuck Ave, Marin Ave, I-580, I-80 and CA-24. Casual Carpool at North Berkeley station is a great way to get into SF during commuting hours.

There is also one sweet cat that lives in the house who is very quiet but does enjoy laying around and bird watching.

No pets, no smoking, no fireworks!


Day hikes and adventures in nearby Tilden Regional Park, a 20 minute walk or 3 minute drive from our house.

Watch HBO GO or Netflix using our Xbox One and flat screen TV!

Close access to North Berkeley neighborhoods, Oakland and the UC Berkeley campus for art, literature, film and other cultural events.


There is also a car that renters of the room are welcome to use, a triumphant 1990 Toyota Corolla station wagon. Manual transimission, many miles, loves to be driven.
