loading your dream home...it is worth the wait
28 Anson Way is a solidly built home embedded on the hillside of Kensington. The home features a practical and well-organized floor plan which appeals to a wide variety of needs. The entry-level, with 3 bedrooms and 1 plus bathrooms, provides a spacious and open living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a formal dining area, both ideal for gatherings. The large L-shaped, eat-in kitchen features a mix of hip Mid-century details and contemporary upgrades, and is equipped with more storage than you could ask for. Go wild at Costco if you want to, buy the party-sized packages of your favorite foods.
The home also provides multiple bonus spaces on both levels perfectly suited as a playroom, guest room, and a home office, you don't have to choose, have it all!*
The lower level has its own full bathroom, a generous family room with a wood-burning fireplace as well as a bonus room. There is an oversized double-car garage and large front and rear yards with excellent sun exposure. With over 2,500 sq ft of living space (per public record), there is room to grow and age in this home, maybe even room to create a second dwelling**.
Located on a peaceful street and minutes to shops, transportation and parks, this home checks a lot of boxes.

Thanks to its proximity to the University of California, Berkeley campus, Kensington may boast the largest number of Nobel Prize winners of any community in the world. But one look at this neighborhood of large homes in the hilly streets above Berkeley, its commanding views of the Bay Area, and sunny terraced yards will explain why this community is one of the most sought after in the East Bay.
Famed architect Bernard Maybeck had a home on Purdue Street. The homes he designed here at the turn of last century have become an informal blueprint for the signature home in Berkeley. These well-proportioned homes are designed for family life and dinner parties. Shingle siding, rustic construction, and bright expansive vistas are the hallmark of the homes in Kensington.
Tilden Park provides the boundary to the east. Miles of biking and hiking trails, a miniature steam train, exhibition farm, merry go-round, and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza make Tilden a popular destination for families.
Transportation via Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is convenient. Heading on Colusa Avenue leads to the El Cerrito Plaza BART station and a short drive down Arlington Avenue takes you to North Berkeley BART and North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood. There are two distinct shopping districts in Kensington.
