Private, modern open plan home in West Oakland. Enjoy the gourmet kitchen, private bathroom, fenced backyard with hot tub.
This listing is for the guest bedroom with a full bed and full private bathroom.
The "Folded House" was designed and built by local architect Matthew Baran in 2009. It has a unique open floor plan that incorporates green strategies to make the home both comfortable and energy efficient. There are two bedrooms, each with their own private bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen that opens into a large dining and living space. Of particular note is the backyard with planter boxes, gas grill and a hottub, perfect after a long day. Household electrical use is offset by solar panels on the roof. The home is comfortably heated by sunlight streaming into the living room and hot water circulated in the floors. The home is filled with pieces created by local artists.
The home is largely yours to enjoy! You will have your own bedroom and bathroom and are free to enjoy the entertainment system in the living room. You are welcome to use the kitchen, enjoy the backyard and hottub, wash laundry, feel at home.
I stay in the master bedroom upstairs and have my own bathroom. My office is downstairs next to the garage, these are separate.
My schedule varies by the week so sometimes I am home all day, sometimes I come home to eat and leave again, some days I come home, grab a bite and crash into bed. If you schedule a stay while I am out of town I will be sure you have all of the information and access that you need to enjoy your stay!
I am not a smoker and would ask that you smoke outside of the home. Simply opening the window is not sufficient.
The home is filled with art made by local artists. Most of these aren't particularly fragile but I would ask that you respect and enjoy them as they are displayed.
