Furnished 1B in 2B1B in Quiet Cul-de-sac

Ad ref# 102375370

6456 Irwin Court, Oakland: 1 bedroom in a 2 bed 1 bath house with one other occupant (me). Located at the end of a neighborly cul-de-sac in North Oakland. $1275 per month. No furry pets, other kinds considered on a case-by-case basis. Must be able to pass a tenant check and provide the first and last month’s rent + a security deposit of $1,275.

House: Fully furnished 11’7” x 11’3” (130 sqft) bedroom with a 50”x28” closet, two west-facing windows, and a direct door to the bathroom. You can add/replace furniture except for the wooden desk which has to remain. If you would like to repaint in a different color, I will cover the cost of the paint. In addition to the bedroom, there is a shared living room with a couch, TV, and board game table. There is space in the shared living room for small items such as a few plants, decorations, keys, and shoes, but most items must be stored in the bedroom. There is a combined kitchen and dining room with a dishwasher, large microwave/broiler/air fryer, gas stove, full size fridge and freezer, pressure cooker, and most other cooking implements. There is a covered area with a washer and dryer just outside the back door. There is a backyard with a garden that is shared with one other tenant from another house. There are two chickens in a coop in the backyard that lay ~10 eggs per week during warm months. There is a small front yard outside of the bedroom windows that is currently overgrown with weeds but could be used for gardening. There is usually street parking, but occasionally it is necessary to park on one of the nearby streets such as Raymond. There is a level 2 electric vehicle charger on the side of the house and a secure bike rack on the front porch where you can store one bike.

Utilities: Trash, recycling, and water are covered by the rent. PGE (includes heating via a floor furnace) and Comcast 500 Mbps internet are shared equally with me via Splitwise/Venmo. Comcast is always $65/month and PGE averaged $255 for the last 12 months, so you can expect utilities to cost ~160/month.
Location: 0.5 miles from Whole Foods, 0.6 miles from Safeway, 0.9 miles from Trader Joes, 0.9 miles from Ashby BART, and 1.4 miles from UCB campus. There are many restaurants within walking distance.

Safety: There are security cameras and an alarm system. I have not suffered package theft in the several years since I installed the cameras, and only once in the many years before.

Me: I’m in my early thirties and I’m in my second year of a PhD in entomology at UC Berkeley. I don’t have a set schedule, but my time is split roughly 50%/50% between work from home and lab/class. I have several pet ant colonies and I often rear insects in vials. I sometimes store insect vials in the fridge and freezer. I don’t drink or use substances, but I don't mind if you do. In addition to entomology, my hobbies are board games, baking, and DIY/crafting. I have a laser cutter, 3D printer, and a large collection of tools that I am willing to share. You're also welcome to use any of my baking/cooking devices. I like to host board game nights every other month or so.

Move-in: January 1st or later. Applicants with move-in dates closer to Jan 1st will be given priority.
