681 Coventry Rd, Kensington, CA 94707

681 Coventry is a classic Kensington home set just enough up the hill to offer both breathtaking Bay views and convenient accessibility to upper Kensington Markets, Colusa Circle, El Cerrito and North Berkeley shops. Upon entering through the charming private garden, you are greeted with a grand living and dining room inlaid with richly colored, exposed wood beams and large picture windows overlooking the lovely garden and Bay. The home balances elements of Spanish-inspired architecture with newly upgraded kitchen and bathrooms including radiant heated floors. The home features a fantastic layout: 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level, 1 bedroom and a half bathroom on the entry level, and a large finished lower level with interior and exterior entrances, a large family room, kitchenette and a full bathroom with the potential to create an in-law suite or ADU. The massive primary bedroom includes a sitting room ideal for enjoying sunsets over the Bay, or it could be a place to add a primary bathroom suite. Equally as impressive is the home is the deep lot filled with flat lawn spaces, winding paths, mature plants. The gardens have been cared for with great attention to detail by its owner for the past five decades, and have been featured on the Berkeley Garden tour.
