Ever wanted to escape to a quiet farm, but still have all the cultural perks and pleasures of a city? Pick veggies from our farm garden, enjoy a lazy weekend in our wonderful backyard...all await you at Fossel Farm. Fossel Farm's sweet one room golden yellow studio has refinished wood floors and faces into the front garden of our urban farm. It has a nice big window with Eastern exposure and great morning light. Its full bathroom has a brand new standing shower and a nice tile floor. The kitchen is on the north wall of the studio with a small sink, compact gas stove, under-the-counter fridge-all new-and a three stool eating nook. The closet is generous for one, fine for two. There is a foldout couch (not that comfortable for sleeping) and an additional single mattress to put on top of the folded out couch or the floor. Zero-VOC paint throughout. The Fossel Farmhouse is an Edwardian style two level house, built in 1911, still a bit rough around the edges here and there in proper urban farm style, but resounds with charm from every corner! It was renovated 14 years ago, with continuing improvements ever since, most of them handcrafted by your hosts. The exterior of the house is newly repainted with great fresh colors. Shared laundry machines are at the back of the house in a greenhouse style laundry shed. The foundation is bolted and sheerwalled-very earthquake safe. Our Edwardian Farmhouse sits on a large fully-fenced double lot with a generous front yard, huge backyard, and two side yards. There is a copper firepit on custom brick hearth, art studio (private), two outdoor eating spaces, kids area (with treehouse, sandbox, toys a plenty, chalkboard wall, mermaid and dragon), wood lounge chairs, handcrafted double red brick pizza oven with grill (in process), outdoor carnival lighting, lots of potted plants (succulents, aloe, orchids, bougainvillea etc), and two shade umbrellas for the tables. The property offers very nice indoor/outdoor living. Fossel Farm's beautiful vegetable gardens consist of 25+ raised beds (always changing but some usual food plant suspects: chard, kale, mixed greens, arugula, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, strawberries, beets, beans, edamame, rhubarb, onions etc). As one of your hosts is also an expert in plant dyes, we grow specialty dyes such as indigo and madder, as well as a range of other color producers. We have our Angora rabbit "bun bun", and keep two active beehives on top of our art studio/shed-out of harm's way-but great for those who may be interested.You can enjoy some seasonal vegetables from our garden and cook yourself a farm fresh egg or two while you're here. Currently the front yard features morning glory vines, a lemon tree, Neroli orange tree, false bamboo, roses, potato vine, as well as an expanding herb garden and a sitting area for two with brick patio. Lastly, there are four raised beds on the sidewalk with succulents and California poppies, as well as a peach and a walnut tree. Right in the heart of the great little neighborhood of lower Shattuck Avenue just south of downtown Berkeley (where Shattuck goes down to two lanes), Fossel Farm is surrounded within a few blocks by local cafes (Nomad, Renaissance, Jumpin' Java), restaurants (Los Cilantros, Smokey J's BBQ, Flaco's Taco's, etc), small loft developments, and a friendly neighborhood Irish pub (Starry Plough). Foodie favorites like Crixa Cakes, Sweet Adeline's Bakery, Emilia's Pizzeria, Easy Cajun, and Alchemy Collective are easy wal
