37 Beverly Road is situated at an ideal viewpoint halfway up the Kensington Hill, just a short trip to the Kensington Circle shops and more. Its simplistically special character is unassuming from the street, but what a treat when you enter and are greeted with delicate continuous lines, display niches, and custom woodwork details. The home offers oversized steel sash windows that frame the San Francisco Bay views, rear gardens, and surrounding landscape. The living room is bright with sunlight from the corner windows and warmly decorated with a wood-burning fireplace and solid wood custom valances.
The kitchen features custom Danish-style cherry wood cabinetry, stone countertops, and a storage peninsula that divides the kitchen from the dining nook. There are 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom with a shower stall and separate tub, and light flowing into every room. The garden spaces are primed with fruit trees, flowering vines, and fragrant rosemary. Multiple patios and plots of mature plants allow for outdoor dining, lounging, and indulging the green thumb without being overly complicated. There is no shortage of storage in this home with a large laundry room equipped with built-in cabinetry, as well as a spacious garage and adjoining storage room.
Kensington, and this address in particular, offer the luxury of San Francisco views while still maintaining a desirable proximity to local amenities, parks, and shops.

Thanks to its proximity to the University of California, Berkeley campus, Kensington may boast the largest number of Nobel Prize winners of any community in the world. But one look at this neighborhood of large homes in the hilly streets above Berkeley, its commanding views of the Bay Area, and sunny terraced yards will explain why this community is one of the most sought after in the East Bay.
Famed architect Bernard Maybeck had a home on Purdue Street. The homes he designed here at the turn of last century have become an informal blueprint for the signature home in Berkeley. These well-proportioned homes are designed for family life and dinner parties. Shingle siding, rustic construction, and bright expansive vistas are the hallmark of the homes in Kensington.
Tilden Park provides the boundary to the east. Miles of biking and hiking trails, a miniature steam train, an exhibition farm, merry-go-round, and the naturally landscaped swimming hole at Lake Anza make Tilden a popular destination for families.
Transportation via Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is convenient. Heading on Colusa Avenue leads to the El Cerrito Plaza BART station and a short drive down Arlington Avenue takes you to North Berkeley BART and North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood. There are two distinct shopping districts in Kensington.
