We seek one community-oriented scholar or other visitor for each of two cozy dwellings at our convenient Berkeley home. Housemates are grad students, a pet carer, and a fiction editor.
Your room has a bed, a desk, a fridge, drawers and closet space for your clothes, linens, plenty of heat, plenty of light, and high-speed Internet. You also share a great kitchen, laundry, den, backyard, and patio. We all share two bathrooms.
Room I available August 1
This sunny room is the largest in our house at approximately 13 x 16 feet. It has five windows, a coffered ceiling, an arched doorway, a tiled non-working fireplace surround, and so on.
Although two other people live in the house, our rooms are at the back of the house and your room is at the front, for privacy.
Room II available probably July
From this lovely room the two windows look out on greenery. The room is at the back of the house, away from the street. It has brand new windows and climate controls, and is extra arty.
This house is in a friendly, quiet neighborhood with an astonishing array of amenities. See this neighborhood map.
Sorry, no pets. Each room is for one non-smoking human only. Covid test required.
Strongly prefer a full-time worker or scholar. Visitors to the Bay Area are welcome.
There is reliable on-street parking next to the house. Nearby are BART and buses. We are one BART stop from campus, and it takes me about seven minutes between campus and here by bike.
Here are the answers to some questions I am often asked:
* We have lived here since 1987.
* One of us is an editor and the other cares for pets at the pets' homes.
* The editor is a woman and the pet guy is a man.
* We keep things neat, and we clean regularly.
* We've lived here with dozens of graduate students from all over the world. Check out the Testimonials page.
* We are friendly, but not overbearing, and like wordplay. One of us is a smarty-pants. At least one.
Please tell us a bit about yourself:
for example, where you work or study, the dates you would like to stay (more or less), where you're living now, and so forth. To make sure I see your mail, please say 'Julia I' or 'Julia II' in the subject of the mail.
