Inspiration, Tranquility and Beautiful Bay Views
Tucked away in sought-after Kensington, this contemporary five bedroom, three bath home is private, yet convenient, filled with light, yet sheltered. Watch the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge while majestic redwoods rustle in the breeze. The spark of inspiration is welcome here.
You will delight in the approach on a flat country road. The sunny front garden and recently installed front and garage doors enhance the level-in entry. Generous windows highlight exciting Bay views.
Beautifully refinished hardwood floors, high ceilings, and arched passages enrich the expansive rooms. The flow is effortless through the kitchen, living and dining, and family room spaces and extend to the private view deck.
Built-in shelving in the living area offers plenty of space for books, artwork and treasure. As the evening light recedes, nights are cozy next to the gas fireplace. Home concerts and memorable parties have been joyfully held here.
The tastefully updated kitchen includes stainless appliances, sleek wood cabinets and Yuki countertops.
Also on the entry level you will find two of the five spacious bedrooms, and a full bath.
The central staircase leads to the three additional bedrooms, two of which are newly carpeted. A second secluded deck is accessed from two downstairs bedrooms while large windows throughout the lower level add to the airy ambiance. The master suite includes a built-in dresser in the closet, and a roomy master bath, which has stone tile, a jetted tub and separate shower. A second downstairs bath serves the two additional bedrooms.
This is a 2,869* sq. ft. home, plus a spacious 2-car garage with interior access, and storage under the lower level. It is convenient to Kensington Village, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, the bus to San Francisco and BART.
