Ever wanted to escape to a quiet farm, but still have all the cultural perks and pleasures of a city? Pick veggies from our gardens, enjoy a lazy weekend in our wonderful backyard... Be the first to stay in our newly remodeled eco-modern home on our urban farm property in Berkeley! SPACE: The Fossel Farm's freshly remodeled Eco-Modern 3BR apartment is a spacious, light-filled, and newly remodeled space with brand new bamboo hardwood throughout and views of the farm from every window. It is on the upstairs level of a 4-unit building which includes another 3BR downstairs and 2 studio apartments as well. Some nice big southern, eastern, and western exposure windows give it great light throughout the day. There is a great room that combines our large living room and farm kitchen into one open floorplan around a central cedar-lined fireplace chimney, three bedrooms, and one full bath. The beds are one king size in its own bedroom, one queen size futon in its own bedroom, a bunkbed with a queensize mattress below and a fullsize above (works for 3), and a brand new queen pull out couch in the living room. The bathroom and kitchen have new black slate floors, and the kitchen has a new dishwasher, brand new fridge, walnut countertops, new cupboards throughout colored with plant dyes, as well as a classic Gafford & Sattler stove from the 40s. Zero-VOC paint throughout. HOUSE: The Fossel Farmhouse is an Edwardian style two level house, built in 1911, still a bit rough around the edges on the outside here and there in proper urban farm style, but resounds with charm from every corner! The house has undergone continuous improvements since we acquired it 17 years ago, most of them handcrafted by your hosts. The exterior of the house is newly repainted with great fresh colors. New top-of-the-line laundry machines at the back of the house in a greenhouse style laundry shed and are shared with the other guests and tenants. The foundation is bolted and sheerwalled-very earthquake safe. PROPERTY: This Edwardian 4-unit house sits on a large fully-fenced double lot with a nice front yard, a large backyard, and two side yards. There is a beautiful vegetable garden with a large number of raised beds which just recently got planted this spring (chard, kale, mixed greens, arugula, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, lots of culinary herbs, strawberries, beets, beans, edamame, rhubarb, onions etc-owners maintain, but you get to eat all you want). There is a great yard with room for kids to play, two nice outdoor eating spaces with two and four chairs each, lots of potted plants (succulents, aloe, orchids, bougainvillea), and three shade umbrellas. The house offers very nice indoor/outdoor living. We keep two active beehives on top of the shed-out of harm's way-but great for those who may be interested. Currently the front yard features morning glory vines, a lemon tree, orange tree, false bamboo, roses, potato vines, as well as a new herb garden. Lastly, there are four raised beds on the sidewalk with succulents and California poppies, as well as a peach and a walnut tree. NEIGHBORHOOD: Right in the heart of the very up-and-coming neighborhood around lower Shattuck Avenue just south of downtown Berkeley (where Shattuck goes down to two lanes), this house is two blocks to the Ashby BART, right on a direct bus line to the UC Campus, and only about a 15 minute walk/5 minute bike ride to downtown Berkeley, the Elmwood, Temescal, and the UC Campus. It is surrounded w/i
