226 Purdue Ave, Kensington, CA 94708

Live the good life in this elegant Kensington home. 226 Purdue boasts an ideal layout - the living room flows beautifully onto a large stone patio, the bedrooms are private spaces and thoughtfully sited apart from the updated kitchen and dining room, and the en-suite bedroom steps directly out onto the garden. With four generously sized bedrooms, there are multiple options for locating a home office and hosting a guest. With brand-new stainless steel appliances, the kitchen bridges tradition with modernity, and was a favorite gathering place for the sellers. This garden is a special place - private and curated, the balance of hardscaping and mature plantings that lend to a serene environment. The home was lovingly cared for over the years, with seismic retrofitting, electrical upgrades, and new roof and windows, among other updates. Ideally located minutes from upper Kensington shops, ideal trails such as Ye Old School Trail, Kensington Park, and a short distance to Colusa Circle and Solano Avenue. Open 3/02, 9:30am-12pm, and 3/05 & 3/12, 2-4pm.
