We are in the Oakland hills surrounded by filtered sunlight. People around here enjoy the feeling of living in the country - that is enjoy their peace and quiet by 8:00pm. The space is a quiet, clean, newly constructed, detached studio with private entrance and bathroom; on the uphill side of our property. The room is about 17x15, modern design; it faces West and gets a lot of light during the day. It stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
