Three-Bedroom Kensington Bungalow with Detached Casita
Stripped to the studs and completely remodeled, this Kensington charmer boasts a Craftsman style aesthetic and brand-new fixtures and finishes throughout. A beautifully reimagined bungalow equipped with two bedrooms and two baths, the home affords the potential for supplemental income, equipped with a legal ADU at the back.
Punctuated by columns, a welcoming front porch greets guests, ushering them across the threshold into a light-soaked 1,108-square foot home. Lined in hardwoods, an open concept floorplan allows for kitchen, dining room, and living room to merge together in one light-soaked space. Appointed with an ornate tile fireplace and framed in endless windows, the living room dissolves into a modern kitchen with marble waterfall island, stainless-steel appliances, and custom pendant light fixtures.
Down the hallway lie a pair of bedrooms with private, exterior entrances, including a gracious master suite with walk-in closet. Serviced by a stunning ensuite bathroom, the spa-like space features a quartz vanity, frameless shower, and custom tile. Out back, a fully fenced yard features an alfresco patio, lush lawn, and brand-new casita. Lined in hardwoods and furnished with French doors, the casita offers a full bathroom, plus detached washer/dryer. Located near top schools, Colusa Circle, Solano Avenue shops, and UC Berkeley, this Kensington gem is situated near city-bound thoroughfares for ultimate commuter convenience.

Thanks to its proximity to the University of California, Berkeley campus, Kensington may boast the largest number of Nobel Prize winners of any community in the world. But one look at this neighborhood of large homes in the hilly streets above Berkeley, its commanding views of the Bay Area, and sunny terraced yards will explain why this community is one of the most sought after in the East Bay. Famed architect Bernard Maybeck had a home on Purdue Street. The homes he designed here at the turn of last century have become an informal blueprint for the signature home in Berkeley. These well-proportioned homes are designed for family life and dinner parties. Shingle siding, rustic construction, and bright expansive vistas are the hallmark of the homes in Kensington. Tilden Park provides the boundary to the east. Miles of biking and hiking trails, a miniature steam train, exhibition farm, merry go-round, and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza make Tilden a popular destination for families. Transportation via Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is convenient. Heading on Colusa Avenue leads to the El Cerrito Plaza BART station and a short drive down Arlington Avenue takes you to North Berkeley BART and North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood. There are two distinct shopping districts in Kensington.
