My listing is NOT near BART public transportation but walking distance to Montclair. A quick drive to downtown Oakland, Berkeley. The house is spacious and you are welcome to use the kitchen, living room, back and front yards.
My house is casual in style. I have lots of books you may read and often have dvds for the t.v. but have no T.V. stations.
The neighborhood is very safe and wonderful for taking walks. I have lived here for over 30 years and know the area well.
