  1401 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA 94702

Active (29 Days)


Co-housing alert! Once a thriving example of urban regenerative & sustainable farming, this controversial but community-friendly haven w/past rooftop oasis, was a central Berkeley bastion of civil disobedience circa late 1990's. Gary Rosenberg purchased the home & spent 20yrs installing demonstration green energy & agricultural systems and intensively planting an organic food forest to sustain not only people in a healthy environment, but also the entire spectrum of the ecosystem. The property demonstrates a model for sustainable living in an urban environment. This vintage 3-unit eclectic compound w/its jardin sauvage continues to provide over 20 varieties of organic fruit. Centrally located within close proximity to CAL, Strawberry Creek Park, restaurants, shops, and freeway access, 1401 Bancroft Way is poised for market rate rents and is in need of a new Earth-respecting steward to restore the roof garden and shepherd the home to the next level of sustainability.
