Living in Kensington

Kensington is a peaceful and charming town, nestled into the hillside north of Berkeley. It is a haven for families that want to be close to the action, but not in it. And the views from high above the San Francisco Bay are spectacular!

This small community is known for its top-rated elementary school, its quaint boutique store district and one of the most visited public libraries in the entire county. Its curvy tree-lined streets and cul-de-sacs enhance its charm and make it one of the East Bay’s most beautiful places to live.


Curvy streets, tree-lined, charming, community-oriented, nature lovers, intellectual, family-oriented, open-minded, unincorporated, great schools, great library
