Property Description

Wind your way along the Alder Dr. loop to this single story, Cape Cod Colonial Revival home, a good candidate for historical designation, in Kensington. Remodeled kitchen with tumbled stone backsplash, garden window views & direct access to the beautiful backyard. Warm hardwood flooring, wood panel wainscoting & plenty of natural light grace this home’s abundant architectural features. Brick paver patio features outdoor kitchen space, wood-fired pizza oven & pergola with adjustable overhead shade canvas. Both the recently updated kitchen and palatial master bathroom, with separate garden tub & shower, are inviting and generously proportioned relative to the overall home size. Once home to the first American woman to receive a doctorate in oceanography (Easter Ellen Cupp from UCSD) and designed by Chris A. Cosgrove, this home is steeped in history with so many original details and yet so many upgrades. Includes several smart home features like the Ecobee thermostat for the central heating & A/C, weather station controlled irrigation and “smart” garage door opener. Plenty of storage in the finished garage with built-in cabinetry, laundry area and large attic with pull-down ladder access. If you're looking to "right-size" and long to embrace the walk-around, village lifestyle, you've just found home in Kensington (and the original house blueprints to go with it)!
