$2,150,000 28 Kerr Ave., Kensington, CA 94707
Truly a romantic home! 1st time on the market, offered for sale by the second long term owners. Designed by 'Mrs. Katherine Murphy' as her ideal residence. c.1940. Mrs. Murphy's plans and notes are detailed and meticulous down to the minute details. The blue prints list her husbands name-Elwood, but it was her design. Surprisingly modern, with clean lines and spacious proportions. An architecturally inspiring design, built around a private interior court yard. This residence has an elegant private feel. An abundance of windows surround the public rooms and principal retreat, taking advantage of the natural light, Bay view and the outlook to an extraordinary expansive garden. Garden level is a workshop/artists studio. Meander through the garden to the stone surround with a sweet camp fire area. Fabulous location, near parks, awarded Hilltop School and blocks to public transportation. Kensington is a sophisticated small community, minutes to San Francisco and neighboring Berkeley.
