Luxury Real Estate In Kensington

Kensington is a small community in the hills above El Cerrito, and immediately adjacent to Berkeley. As with the nearby Berkeley hills homes, many of these homes were built to take full advantage of the sweeping SF Bay area views that include the Bay Bridge, San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and northern Marin.

Kensington Luxury Homes

The home designs at the lower level are more classic traditional and Spanish stucco styles of the mid-20th century, and include upslope lots, smaller, but well developed, front gardens, and handsome backyards for traditional family entertaining.  

As one moves up the hill, homes built among trees are more common, and more Berkeley hill style designs appear.  Often seen are Craftsman, Brown Shingle, and Tudor.  Many of these homes at either level have been upgraded to include modern kitchens and bathrooms, open floor plans and floor to ceiling insulated windows.
