1023 West Kensington Road

From the sidewalk you may wonder why this lovely Craftsman at 1023 West Kensington Road is asking almost $1.2MM. It will most likely sell for even higher. While it looks to be gorgeously maintained, it also seems a bit modest. That is, until you realize just how deceptively cavernous and beautifully detailed this home truly is.

The living and dining rooms — at first glance may seem rather unassuming — but the pieces start to fall into place once you notice the rich dark wood flooring and period details like built-ins and a Batchelder fireplace.

That feeling only builds in the kitchen, which abounds with tastefully elegant touches, such as a farmhouse sink, cobblestone subway tile backsplash, Carrera marble countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances.

Design details remain homogenous throughout the 4 bedroom and 3 1/2 bath home, including the master, where you’ll find more rich flooring and more tile.

It’s safe to call one of the bedrooms “sizable.” No penalty boxes here — all class.

Up to this point, you may still be wondering why the cost is so high. Well, may I introduce you to the basement…

1023 W Kensington Basement

Large enough to be a living room, den, game room, and more, it’s clear that all 3,200+ sq/ft have been put to great use. It would also be an ideal place for hosting a party while keeping guests out of the main living quarters. You’ll also find another generous bedroom here as well.

Additionally the basement opens up to a lovely patio area and vast yard space that an 8,000 sq/ft lot would allow for. Need more? How about another separate room under the two car garage that would make for a great office or studio space. It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?

There’s even room for a pool, which would make the house shine a bit more.
