Spectacular 9-year-old Craftsman style home custom-built by renowned PKK Builders and artfully designed by GTM Architects on an exquisite, 18,000+ square foot lot in one of Kensington’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Over 5,000 square feet of living space feature high ceilings, lovely moldings, fine materials and finishes, and large windows filling the home with natural light.
With a deep, manicured front yard and expansive front porch, this home reflects the beauty and charm of old Kensington with all the comforts and amenities of new construction. There is a large, gracious foyer with a window overlooking a beautiful side yard. A wide connecting center hallway allows for views of French doors in the rear family room. Bright living and dining rooms, each with three large windows and lovely moldings, offer formal entertaining space.
In the back of the home, an expansive all white kitchen is open to a breakfast room and family room – wonderful areas to gather with family or friends. Equipped for serious cooks, the kitchen includes a 6-burner Thermador range, an expansive work island with two built-in ovens, pendant lighting and a large walk-in pantry. An adjacent breakfast area with a wall of windows offers stunning views of the deep, level backyard, lush and green with a variety of flowering shrubs and trees.
The family room with an oversized gas fireplace and beamed ceiling is the perfect spot to curl up with a book or listen to music. French doors lead to a delightful screened porch with ceiling fan, skylights and backyard views. Both the porch and family room are wired for sound. Throughout the main level there are dark hardwood floors, recessed lights, nine-foot ceilings and beautiful moldings – even inside the doorways.
Along the stairway up are three tall windows brightening the main and upper levels. Four bedrooms upstairs include an owner’s suite with tray ceiling, two large walk-in closets and three large windows offering stunning vistas of the rear yard. The luxury owner’s bath features a double vanity, tub and oversized shower with marble walls and floors. Two additional bedrooms share a full bath, while the fourth bedroom has one ensuite. All bedrooms have walk-in closets. For added convenience, there is a large laundry room on this level with built-in shelving, a clothing rod and sink.
With additional space for work, play and guests, the daylight lower level includes a large rec room, an office/workout room and a guest bedroom with walk-in closet and full bath. Two expansive utility rooms have abundant space for storage.
This special home is just steps to Antique Row, the Marc train, the Farmer’s Market, and a short drive to the vibrant new shops and restaurants along Summit and Knowles. A detached garage and driveway provide parking for four cars. Enjoy traditional charm, modern amenities, great space, and a glorious lot – all just minutes to every place you want or need to be. Welcome home.
