Kensington is an unincorporated town that is located in the hills between El Cerrito and Berkeley. A favorite home of U.C. Berkeley Alums and their families, Kensington offers some great views of the bay and beyond. This is a prestigious town, very quiet, with few stores and few children and lots of retirees (median age of residents is 47). Though unincorporated, Kensington does have its own police department — and hence, crime rates are very low. Kensington Elementary school is the only school in town, and generally scores in the top 10 percent of all California schools. Since it is within the West Contra Costa County School District, the kids generally go to El Cerrito High School in neighboring El Cerrito. Kensington comprises an area of 900 acres, and was built out in the 1940’s. There are about 2,250 residential housing units, of which 86% are owner occupied single family detached houses — a great sign of the stability of Kensington’s housing market. Close to Berkeley and Albany, Kensington has nearby Solano Avenue for restaurants and shops, and the University of California for plays, movies, museums, art galleries, and much more. The freeway and BART are about a mile away. Kensington also borders Tilden Park, which is one of the largest and finest parks in the east bay. Good vs. Evil: just as the city of Pleasanton out in Alameda County has a sadistic traffic light that turns RED almost instantly when it senses your car approaching, there is a friendly traffic light in Kensington that always turns GREEN when it senses you approaching — so dependable that you can approach it at full speed without even touching your brakes — it WILL turn green, every time… (We need more of those in the bay area!) Can you find it? You might want to exercise caution if you decide to experiment… try a time when no one else is likely to be out on the roads… Baron & Chestney Real Estate features full service discount realtors who will sell your Kensington home for a TOTAL real estate commission of only 2% to 4%!
