welcome to velo station
Find more room to roam at Velo Station, a unique collection of four recently- updated condos in an up-and-coming neighborhood of Berkeley.
Only steps from BART, this is California bungalow living at its best – perfect for Urban Dwellers in search of more private space, those who want to downsize or people looking to live close to UC Berkeley, just a short bike ride away. Each bike-friendly unit comes with the offer of a $1,000 gift certificate for an electric bike at Rad Power bikes.
Velo Station is comprised of two fully renovated detached buildings with four total units: two one-bedroom units, a one-bedroom plus den and an alcove studio. All units live like bungalows - single level on the ground floor, with private entrances, sun-filled outdoor spaces and spacious storage sheds.
These light, bright corner units are a compelling opportunity for those seeking the convenience of an affordable central Berkeley location, while benefiting from private outdoor spaces and a pet-friendly atmosphere similar to a single family home.
Step inside and here’s what you’ll find: breezy open concept floor plans, California transitional design, updated kitchens and baths with tiled showers, outdoor spaces, ample storage, all corner units, double doors to a side yard with artificial grass (per plan) refinished oak floors, in-unit stacked washer/dryers, dual pane windows, large corner windows and more.
The kitchens offer the best expression of form-meets-function with a breakfast bar (per plan), new cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances and solid surface countertops. All of the units have completely new plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems, new roofs, windows and tile. Two of the units also feature a second bath and bonus garage that can double as a workshop or office studio. Pet owners will also love the dog washing shower in the second bathroom.
A Walk Score of 92 and Bike Score of 98 puts you close to the heart of the action in South Berkeley / North Oakland. Plus, you’ll have an easy walk to BART, Ashby BART Farmer’s Market, Berkeley Bowl, Grove Park, San Pan Pablo Park and more. Opportunities like Velo Station don’t come along often – don't miss your chance to enjoy a taste of the Berkeley bungalow life.
You can't get closer to the University of California, Berkeley campus than South Berkeley, the neighborhood originally developed in the 1860s by the school’s predecessor, the College of California. 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 Alcatraz Avenue, where street vendors, bookstores, record shops, 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 downtown San Francisco, local airports, sports stadiums, and other locations in the Bay Area.
