This unicorn property can be summed up in one word - AMAZING. With panoramic views of San Francisco city, Golden Gate and Bay Bridge from both levels, incredible artistic design found corner-to-corner, and the incredibly versatile floor plan – this home offers new meaning to the word perfection.
The moment you enter the main home you are captivated by the stunning open concept design pouring over from living room, formal dining room to the incredible kitchen.
The kitchen, oh that kitchen! Where do I begin? The polished waterfall quartz countertops, designer light fixtures that perfectly shine, all stainless steel appliances and the crisp new cabinetry* are only a few of the special attributes in this large updated kitchen.
The large formal dining room is perfectly set by the expansive deck that pulls you out towards the amazing view, you will never want to leave.
The spacious living room, all silhouetted by the views and grounded by the dual-sided fireplace placed perfectly in the center as a key focal point.
On the second level you will find 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms including a primary suite that is not only spacious but offers ample closet space and storage for all of the things you love. Oh, those two bathrooms! As though they were ripped out of designer magazines and cloned perfectly into this home, the unique true terrazzo tiles, custom vanities, lighting, you have to see it all to believe it!

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.
