Outdoor Escape:
A magical garden paradise awaits you. Flagstone pavers, a succulent paradise, twinkling lights for those early evening soirees. A perfect respite from a long day.

The Location:
With a Walkscore of 90 and a Bikescore of 98 (flat as a pancake) the location offers easy access to numerous dining and shopping areas.
* Food...wow, so much to choose from. Groceries are a breeze with Whole Foods, Berkeley Natural Grocers and Monterey Market nearby. Scrumptious restaurants are plentiful with the iconic LaLimes for special celebrations. Brunch at Stella Nonna (bottomless mimosas) and summertime fun around the fire-pit at Westbrae Beirgarden where you can bring your well behaved pooch too. You can also find a burgeoning artist community and new businesses filling the warehouses with breweries, wine shops and eclectic shopping. Sunday afternoons you can find fun times at Fieldwork Brewery or enjoy First Friday celebrations at Donkey and Goat Winery with live music.

* Get in your outdoor activities at 5 acre Cedar Rose Park offering 5 sport courts and a tot-play area for the wee ones. Cesar Chavez park is also nearby if you are looking to fly a kite, throw a frisbee or take the pooch (huge leash free dog area.)

* Commuters will appreciate close proximity to BART (15 minute stroll), freeway options, as well as popular casual carpool or transbay commuter bus to SF. So much to explore and do just outside the front door.
