Being near the East Bay Water district means a lot of open space and very old oak trees. Homes are well spaced, well established, and drivers are respectful of walkers, enjoying the challenge of rolling hills, often with dogs. There is a leash law, so our beasts are tamed. My address is within minutes of a roadway directly to town and Bart. A new bridge is presently in construction, soon to be completed.
Getting to Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit) takes about 5 minutes. There is taxi service available. Coming by air from OAK or SFO is direct to Orinda. But many destinations require driving. San Francisco is about a 30 minute trip via BART., Berkeley about 30 minutes.
If possible I will assist with transportation.
If you are attending Cal games, this is very convenient--no parking or congestion. Bart Stops at downtown Berkeley and walking or buses available. Many desirable areas to explore in North Bay and coast, as well as local reservoirs and parks. San Francisco offers ethnic neighborhoods, museums, opera and symphony buildings. All of the Bay Area is famous for restaurants and entertainment possiblities.
