At the end of a quiet court, tucked away in the hills of Kensington, 4 Estates Rd is a 3+BD/2BA level-in, level-out Mid-Century Modern with gorgeous SF bay and city views, bonus spaces, multiple patios, and a detached 2-car garage. The home’s open floor plan is enhanced by high beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and expansive west-facing windows and glass doors that overlook the bay and fill the rooms with natural light. The home includes an open living and dining room, a bonus room that might serve as a den or study, updated chef’s kitchen with stone countertops, Bosch dishwasher, and Wolf range, and a sunny breakfast nook overlooking the bay.
A spacious retreat, the large primary suite enjoys radiant heat and includes a sitting area featuring operable skylights and glass brick wall, and glass French doors opening to the rear patio with a bay view - an ideal spot for morning coffee or alfresco entertaining. The adjoining luxurious bath has been remodeled with a beautifully tiled walk-in shower and a deep soaking tub framed by luminous glass brick - perfect for relaxing after a long day. Two additional bedrooms - one with corner windows and views of the Golden Gate Bridge - share a remodeled bath with shower over tub.
Lush greenery and colorful Japanese maples surround the home, offering multiple outdoor spaces. Off the dining room, convenient for casual meals, an enclosed deck enjoys bay views, and on the eastern side of the home a tranquil patio is a shaded oasis. Mature landscaping frames the expansive rear yard with a verdant lawn and large pergola-covered patio. An outdoor staircase climbs to a detached playhouse with incredible views that might inspire conversion to a private studio or workspace above the fray.
Located in the tight-knit community of Kensington with its excellent schools, the home is the best of both worlds near North Berkeley and the UC Berkeley campus, Tilden Park with miles of hiking and biking trails, and moments from Colusa Circle and Arlington shopping districts lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques, restaurants, and gourmet food shops.
