The smaller Berkley is a studio model with an efficiency kitchen, living room/bedroom, and bathroom. The sofa in the living room can be turned into a bedroom with a Murphy bed or pullout. The inset porch offers the square design a bit of interest and adds some dimension to the kitchen area. The Berkley starts at $92,000.
