The City of Berkeley is more than a college town; it is a magnet for brilliance. Influential, exciting and artistic, it is a hub for fearless innovators, brawny businesses, and now smarter living experiences, thanks to the arrival of Modera Berkeley. This new high-style community is comprised of four distinct buildings, each one with its own mix of amenities and aesthetics. What unites them is simple: A devotion to beautiful design and functionality. Original exposed brick walls in select homes make you feel right at home as you sip your coffee over gleaming quartz countertops or write that dissertation overlooking sweeping city views. Then head out to enjoy some grilling, gaming, cycling, and most importantly, all the downtime you deserve. Outside, it feels as if the city revolves around you. Feel the urge to be inspired? Head to the Berkeley Arts District or Aurora Theatre Company. Famished? Take a stroll down Shattuck and Telegraph Avenues to check out the birthplace of the farm-to-table movement. Or just take a ride down a Bicycle Boulevard and revel in the bohemian spirit of this city. This is where everyone wants to be, and you have the opportunity to live. Modera Berkeley is a stunning new community in a hotspot overflowing with action and ambition. And from it, there is virtually nothing you can not accomplish.

Hey, there, and welcome to the online headquarters for your Berkeley, California apartment hunting escapades!

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with pools in Berkeley, CA

Finding apartments with a pool in Berkeley means cooling off from the summer heat, get-togethers, and more exercise. However, there are a few things to consider before signing your next lease.

Ask the property management how long the pool is open each year. Is it seasonal? Does the pool have a heat pump to make it practical to swim beyond summertime? You should also inquire about pool rules, capacity, and if unattended children are permitted. The size of the pool also matters. An oversized apartment complex with a tiny pool could mean crowded summers and frustrations when trying to take a quick dip.

Finding apartments with a pool in Berkeley could also drive up your rent, but may be worth the trade-off. Assess the overall amenities of the property. Apartments with a pool may look fantastic on the outside, but inside the kitchen could need an upgrade or the bedrooms could prove smaller than you want.

Once you find the apartment of your dreams, enjoy an afternoon swim and get to know your new neighbors.
