4 o’clock on a Friday and, no, it’s not too late to have friends in. You pop up to Colusa Market, just a block away, and pick up two bottles of red, some pasta, and an assortment of cheeses. 

Drinks are in your open concept kitchen, dinner is level-out to the back yard, and life is good. 

This charming, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Kensington was extensively renovated top to bottom in 2013. It’s turnkey. The garage is ADU-ready, if you’re into that. 

Solano Ave and El Cerrito BART are close, the weekly Colusa Circle farmer’s market is just around the corner, and you are right at home.


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.
