Amazing Opportunity to make this “your own” and create an extraordinary residence. Located on a rare landscaped “double” lot with expansive unobstructed views of the Bay. Structurally sound with loads of potential. This sunny & spacious 2 story home with bay views from both levels features, 4 plus bedrooms (includes owner’s suite), 3 baths, large living room with fireplace & open beam ceiling, family room, formal dining room, breakfast nook, laundry area, balcony off 2 of the upper bedrooms, office & utility room. A lovely large brick front entrance patio & upper floor surrounds a private interior courtyard. Once spectacular grounds including a peaceful Zen Garden & a variety of fruit trees are in need of a little “love and nurturing” to recapture their former magic. Centrally located to the nearby amenities of Kensington Village, Solano Avenue, and the Fairmount Avenue. Only 1 mile from BART and shopping at the El Cerrito Plaza. Highly regarded Kensington Elementary.
