Directions to 1114 Hillview Road 

There are two ways to get here, depending on whether you’re coming from North Berkeley (like Solano) or from downtown Berkeley (like Shattuck). The first (from Solano) is more straightforward, easier to describe and follow; the second (from Shattuck) is twistier and trickier, up through the hills. If you’re coming from downtown, you might prefer to go a little further out of your way to take the first (longer but simpler) route instead of the second (shorter but twistier); your choice. Both routes get you to the intersection of Grizzly Peak Boulevard and Shasta Road, after which the directions from there to the house are the same. 

From downtown Berkeley (the shorter but twistier way):
