As it stands, with its beige exterior and clean landscaping, our home appears pretty unassuming, which works just fine for may of us.

There is a lot of POP walking in, but seeing past it, you’ll find a home with some wonderful character touches, including dark hardwood flooring, wainscoting, and French doors, along with updated electrical, copper plumbing and central A/C.

1150 W Kensington Dining

The French doors lead to an intimate dining room, complete with wet bar and a unique, yet tastefully modern, chandelier. Compared to much of the home, the large kitchen is far more traditional, with a generous amount of dark wood cabinetry, plantation shutters, and stainless steel appliances.

The bedrooms are a comfortable size and offer a fair amount of closet space. The plantation shutters are a nice touch here as well.

Beyond the relatively private yard space, you’ll also find a two car garage that has transformed into a pretty big living area, man cave, or hiding room. The driveway leading up is also gated, with remote access, for an added sense of security.
