Rustic cottage in need of TLC! 

This unimaginable find in the Berkeley hills is located in an unspoiled, natural setting with a sense of remoteness yet so near the city. Out of view from the street, this charming retreat is snuggled among plum trees, bamboo and a creek. The property is accessed only from one of Berkeley’s famous hillside paths. This lovely setting suited the current owner—now 93—for over 50 years, proving that stairs and nature keep you healthy!
