OPEN HOUSE THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 27TH 12:00 - 2:00 PM
Four generations have called 636 Beloit home and it is now awaiting the next wonderful steward to begin its next journey! It has been the heart of this family through all of life's celebrations, gatherings and seasons, welcoming newborns, guests, neighbors, and new friends for short visits or long stays. It has been a cherished space.
This home has a classic Mid-century vibe with wood-paneled walls and clean lines. The light pours in from the entry and kitchen skylights as well as all across the main level windows. Bucolic views of Tilden surround you on this private part of Beloit Ave. and you can take this in from the decks on each level that allow one to forest bathe on the regular! On the main floor, you will find 3 generous bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The primary bedroom has its own wing and begs to be turned into a fully enclosed suite! And the real place to dream can be found in the lower level that runs the length of the home. Reinvent the space and augment the connection to the expansive deck and verdant views...it all sparks inspiration to create and experience the best of California living. It is a blank canvas offering you endless options to make this home your own.
With Tilden Park as your back garden, there is a sense of privacy and peacefulness as if you were miles away, but with the Kensington center less than 2 miles away and the Downtown Berkeley area just 3 miles away, you can be where it all happens in a flash! This private and fantastic gathering place is truly at the center of it all!
Possessing the charm and appeal of a close-knit New England town, affluent Kensington is home to quiet, tree-filled neighborhoods, unique shops and tranquil parks. Nestled high up in the Berkeley Hills, Kensington real estate is marked by upscale homes with panoramic views and incredible proximity to Tilden Park. It’s no wonder that this tiny unincorporated community is one of the Bay Area’s most desirable places to live.
Although small in size, Kensington is large in stature. The 10-plus-acre Blake Garden serves as a landscape laboratory for UC Berkeley and is grounds for the Blake House, the former residence of the president of the University of California.
Nearby Tilden Park attracts generations of East Bay families who enjoy nature hikes, picnics, swimming, botanic gardens, and kid-friendly activities such as an old-fashioned carousel, steam train and pony rides.
Kensington’s two picturesque shopping districts are lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants and gourmet food shops where friendly shopkeepers greet customers by name.
