Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are a family of four who love to travel the world. We bought this 1959 house and after living in a couple of years, remodeled and added 2000 square feet. We wrapped the structure in an embrace around the patio to create ultimate privacy for times when you want to shoot some hoops or sit around the fire pit. Lots of love has been imbued into the walls of this home as our family has laughed and played. We are sure this will be reflected in your stay here.
Why the Owner Chose Kensington, San Diego, CA, USA:
When we moved to San Diego, we first lived a year on Wind 'N Sea beach, then a couple years in Bay Park before we discovered this historic neighborhood of Kensington where the streets are flat so kids can ride bikes, neighbors are kind, restaurants and services and even church are all within a few blocks walking distance. This makes a great place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather San Diego has to offer and yet be close to everything.
