You can't get closer to the UC Berkeley campus than South Berkeley, and 2628 Telegraph Avenue rests just six blocks from the University gate. In 1866, The College of California, a private institution founded by Yale alumnus Henry Durant, purchased the land that comprised the UC Berkeley campus. In 1866, Governor Henry Haight signed the Organic Act, which established University of California as the first state land-grant University.
The latter institution may be long gone, but the large, spacious, brown-shingled homes along Allston, Bancroft, Channing, and Dwight ways remain. Densely populated, the neighborhood contains some of the city’s oldest homes.
South Berkeley is a mix of students, longtime residents, businesses, and homes. The major thoroughfares are Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, and Ashby Avenue, where street vendors, bookstores, and inexpensive eateries cater to students. Nightlife is abundant, thanks to the proximity to campus, Zellerbach Hall, and Downtown Berkeley.
Both the Ashby and Downtown Berkeley BART stations serve the neighborhood, as do a number of Alameda-Contra Costa Transit buses, making it a snap to get to San Francisco, local airports, and other locations in the Bay Area. Situated between Downtown Berkeley and Ashby Avenue stations, downtown San Francisco is just 30 minutes from home.
2628 Telegraph Avenue is located less than 3/4 mile to the UC Berkeley campus. Berkeley bus line 6 picks up one block from the property and takes you directly to the University. The building offers secure bike storage for residents. Leave your car in it's assigned garage parking space and take a ride down the picturesque Avenue.
Restaurants abound with cuisine from around the world. Thai, Ethiopian and French restaurants are interspersed with casual dining, burger joints and local cafes. Berkeley Bowl, a local favorite supermarket, and Whole Foods are both located within walking distance of the condo. Spice shops, community gardens and an abundance of traditional and natural health care providers cater to your physical and spiritual well being.
2628 Telegraph Avenue is at the center of a renowned University town and just minutes from a world class cosmopolitan city. Welcome home to the very best of the Bay.
