Kensington Real Estate

Located in the hills just to the north of Berkeley, Kensington California is a quiet, affluent community with a small town ambiance and metropolitan convenience. Its proximity to Berkeley makes Kensington popular with academics; while commuters appreciate the two nearby BART stations (one in El Cerrito, the other in North Berkeley), which make commuting to Oakland, San Francisco, and other Bay Area locations simple and direct.

Although Kensington is primarily residential, two neighborhood-shopping areas keep life in Kensington pleasant and convenient with shops and restaurants, food and wine markets, and even a hardware store.  Nearby Tilden Park and Wildcat Canyon Regional Park provide trails and open spaces for hiking, biking, and picnicking; and, for the young (or young at heart), Tilden Park's carousel offers loads of family fun.

Kensington has the same residential charm that makes neighboring Berkeley so popular.  Most of the homes in Kensington were built during the 1930s and ‘40s, giving the community an eclectic character.  With a prime location in the Berkeley Hills, many Kensington homes offer dramatic, sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay.
