UC may spend $600K to fix empty presidential mansion
KENSINGTON, Calif. (KGO) -- The UC Board of Regents is considering a plan to spend $600,000 to fix an empty mansion in the East Bay hills.
The Blake House is located in Kensington, just north of Berkeley.
University of California presidents have lived at the home since 1968. But it's been vacant for five years and needs major repairs.
It's in such bad shape, the UC will spend $10,000 a month to rent a house in Oakland for incoming President Janet Napolitano.
