$1,520,000 21 Norwood Ave, Kensington, CA 94707
Mid-century perfection. Except for the thoughtful updates, this home has been largely untouched since 1957. Tucked off a quiet street, this Kensington gem was originally designed and built by a prominent architect of the time for his own family. After entering the living room with its floor-to-ceiling windows, mahogany paneling, refinished wood floors, and beautiful beamed ceilings, head through to an updated vintage eat-in kitchen complete with breakfast bar. The expansive deck provides the perfect ambiance for sunset aperitivo gatherings with friends and family while taking in the Bay and Marin Headland views. The large backyard is great for little ones to explore with trees galore including-loquat (with treehouse), plum, cherry, and more. The 3 bedrooms are all on the same level and the primary bedroom boasts a private office, quiet enough for Zoom conference calls. Not to mention a great location for hopping over to Blake Garden (1 block up), cute shops on Arlington and Solano
