If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful space with lots of light and privacy, this backyard garden cottage is for you. 10 minutes from Mills College and Montclaire Village and 20 minutes from San Francisco, in the Oakland hills.
This very private, detached garden cottage is located in my backyard, in a quiet neighborhood near Mills College. The full kitchen and bathroom are newly renovated and the gas heater keeps the space nice and toasty. There is lots of light through 2 large windows, a skylight, and French doors which open onto a private deck. There is a bistro table and chairs with market umbrella on the deck for dining al fresco or reading in the garden, and the inside dining table is ideal for use as a desk space. Wifi is included.
You'll have easy access to Hwy 580 and Hwy 13 and Bart is a 10 minute drive. Very close to Mills College and the upscale Montclair district's restaurants, markets, boutiques and cafes. And San Francisco is just a 20 minute drive away.
You're also a short drive to miles of hiking and mt. biking trails in the Oakland hills. Great central location for travelers to the Bay Area! I've lived in Oakland for 23 years, so can give local recommendations to help you get the most of your stay in our beautiful city on the bay.
