2 Kenyon Avenue
From its ethereal Kensington setting, this time-honored, totally transformed four-bedroom home puts the Bay on display. Gardens, decks and brick terrace, plus thoroughly renovated interior, showcase a long-range panorama centered on the Golden Gate Bridge. Entirely new from floor to ceiling, the home integrates fresh wide-plank wood flooring, lighting-enhanced ceilings, radiant surfaces and components throughout the kitchen and both full bathrooms. A layout that luxuriates in indoor-outdoor living flows out from the living room, kitchen, and multiple bedrooms.
The view-savoring, peaceful hillscape of Kensington makes every day feel like an elevated getaway. Neighboring Tilden Regional Park offers hiking, biking, picnicking, golf, and attractions like Little Farm and Steam Train amid its 2,000-plus acres. Also nestled nearby, gathering spots and conveniences include neighborhood cafes, gourmet and housewares shops, plus a farmer’s market.
Step through the garden gate to a brick walk arcing through the enclosed front garden. Both home, with decorative brick façade outlined by quoins, and garden, abundant with roses and citrus, convey heirloom enchantment; a rose-threaded arched trellis approaches the arched front entry. Enter to comprehensive rejuvenation.
Fresh surfaces all around envelop bright living spaces that present sight lines of garden surroundings and the Bay. Original architectural facets grace the living room: a fireplace adds rustic warmth and beamed ceiling, updated with recessed lighting, crowns the space with linear allure. Glass expanses of picture windows plus a door frame Bayscapes and open to a broad lounging deck granting glorious views and connecting to lawn and back garden. Enjoy Bay-view dining within the formal dining room, which accommodates a crowd, or al fresco on the kitchen-adjacent brick terrace or second deck that borders it. Overlooking the front garden, the kitchen features all-new everything: cabinetry, natural-stone counters, stainless appliances, lighting, and more, all in a straight modular design open on both ends, with a glass-door garden connection.
Also just transformed, bathrooms blend new tile, fixtures, and vanities, a floating version in the primary bathroom. Two bedrooms plus hall bathroom share a corridor, and the primary suite and fourth occupy the second floor, where a hallway alcove makes a cozy nook for reading, play, or accessible storage.
An angular skylighted ceiling in the primary suite generates airy atmosphere. Adjacent and equally airy, the fourth bedroom doubles well as a home office. Also skylighted, its tented ceiling soars above the space that opens to the exterior on two sides, offering sweeping airflow and flexible usage options.
