Antonia asked me to post this:
I’m going to India from 10/23/05 to 2/10/06 and am offering my home, furnished, for rent during this window of time. I could make it available as early as 10/1.
This beautiful single family home ~ graced by dragonflies, hummingbirds, and lush gardens ~ is nestled in the hills of Belmont, CA, just 15 minutes south of the San Francisco International Airport, minutes from the 101, 92, 280, and Caltrain.
2 BR (one furnished as an office that looks out on the garden with FCP 4.0 G4 editing system), 1BA, living room with wood-burning fireplace, equipped kitchen with water filtration and new appliances, dining room, home yoga studio (converted garage; could be den or additional bedroom), W/D, hardwood floors throughout, gorgeous front garden with custom stone work and back garden with wood decking. There’s a standalone room/office with views at the top of the hill in the backyard.
Cable TV, internet, local phone service, trash/recycling, weekly gardener are set up. Kid-friendly. No pets or smoking. Degree to which I clear my stuff is negotiable.
