Remodeled Tri-Level Kensington Home with Panoramic Bay Views
A hilltop hideaway that boasts panoramic views of the bay from its terraced decks, this tri-level Kensington home affords a light-soaked open footprint with floor-to-ceiling glass. Completely remodeled from top to bottom, the four plus bedroom, four-bathroom beauty provides the perfect multi-generational family home with three distinct living levels and two laundry areas.
The main level is a spectacular open concept that seamlessly blends kitchen, dining and family rooms in one sunlit expanse. Impeccably reimagined with white oak flooring and modern finishes, a sleek kitchen with quartz counters has been appointed with new stainless-steel appliances and ample cabinetry. Designed with a glassed-in sunroom and fireplace-clad family room, the adjacent dining area spills outward into an expansive outdoor deck with uninterrupted Bay views.
The uppermost level is home to four gracious bedrooms, an updated hall bathroom, and laundry alcove. Illuminated by an overhead skylight, a sizable primary suite affords sweeping ocean views and a beautifully remodeled ensuite bath with dual quartz vanity, freestanding soaking tub and walk-in shower with rain shower head and shower wand.
The bottom level is perfect for entertaining or hosting out-of-towners. Floor-to-ceiling glass invites warmth and natural light into a gracious living area equipped with full bath, ample storage, and a stunning outdoor deck. The sizeable footprint could be easily converted into a granny unit or independent ADU for supplemental income. Located above the Village shops, this Kensington beauty is a short drive to the 80/580 freeways and El Cerrito BART for convenient commutes.

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.
