Kensington Homes for Sale

Pushed right up against the Tilden Nature Area and situated in between Berkeley and El Cerrito is the small, picturesque town of Kensington, California. It’s estimated that right around 5,000 people call Kensington home today, and with much of the area either fully developed or surrounded by protected nature areas and public parks, the city’s future growth potential is limited for the most part. But with that said, most people who already live in town are just fine with what Kensington already has to offer, which is best described as a low-key vibe and overall laid-back lifestyle. Additionally, existing home owners tend to like Kensington’s authentic small town charm, not to mention it’s overwhelming residential setting, and if you’re someone who’s also thinking about making a move here, the housing landscape is something that rarely leaves potential home buyers disappointed.

Kensington Real Estate 

If you love historic homes or homes with plenty of charm and character, you’ll appreciate what Kensington’s real estate market has to offer. In fact, many Kensington homes for sale were originally built back in the 1930s and 1940s, also making it a great place to begin a home search if you love bungalow or cottage style homes as much as we do. Contemporary mid-century modern houses and even a number of Tudors and Spanish Revival homes are also commonly found throughout the Kensington area, truly making it one of the most diverse housing markets you’ll find in Contra Costa County, at least from an architectural standpoint. Look for most single-family homes in Kensington to start somewhere close to $900,000, and even the few townhouse residences you’ll find in town won’t be much below $900,000 as well.
