Imagine sitting in a beautiful, spacious room with elegant hardwood floors, high ceilings, and warm natural light streaming in through the windows. In one hand is your favorite book; in the other is a cup of gourmet tea or coffee. If that sounds like your ideal home, look no further for your next apartment The 12-unit complex at 2620 Hillegass offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments in a beautiful 1920s building with a lush, green yard on a tree-lined street. In addition to providing a warm, homey atmosphere, this complex has added conveniences that ensure you have time to sit down and enjoy your new apartment. The on-site laundry facility ensures that you donâ€™t spend nights at a laundromat, and the off-street parking means youâ€™ll never have to circle the block in search of an elusive parking spot. Currently, we have a super large apartment on the top floor which leads itself to tons of natural lighting. This unit also has a flexible layout meaning that it is a 2 bedroom that can easily be used as a 3 bedroom without disrupting the commonly used areas. New partition doors also installed to assist with the use of the optional 3rd bedroom. There's also laundry available and it is within walking distance to the campus. Definitely a great unit in a great building in the perfect location! Neighborhood description The Hillegass Apartments are centrally located on the border between Elmwood and Southside. This means youâ€™re within easy reach of the best of both worlds: The bustle and excitement of Telegraph Avenue and the UC Berkeley campus, and the elegance and sophistication of the Elmwood neighborhood. Living here, youâ€™ll be only six blocks from the UC Berkeley campus, and only two blocks from Telegraph Avenue with its wide array of shops and restaurants. Youâ€™ll also be just a five minute drive from the Downtown Berkeley BART station. Explore the four floors of books at Moeâ€™s Books on Telegraph. When youâ€™re ready to eat, stop at one of the dozens of restaurants in the area, including healthful fast food at Smart Alecâ€™s and pizza at Blondieâ€™s or Fat Slice. Head south to the Elmwood district for more formal dining options such as Italian at Trattoria la Siciliana, vegetarian at La Mediterranee, and Ethiopian at Finfine. For those nights when you prefer to eat in, Whole Foods Market is less than a half mile away

Very modern-looking apartments, nice rooftop area for hanging out.
The property manager gets very annoyed when things aren't clean, e.g. put video cameras up to see who was dumping trash/overfilling dumpsters.
