A gorgeous 1920s Spanish retreat located on a beautiful quiet canyon in Kensington, one of San Diego’s most exclusive neighborhoods. Four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in almost 2900 sq ft.

The space
This is a NEW listing! Longer stays are welcome.

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to make yourself at home in our gorgeous 1929 Spanish retreat, located on a quiet palm tree-lined cul-de-sac in historic Kensington. Full of charm and character, and decorated with an eclectic flair, the home is immediately warm and welcoming to you and your guests.

Enter through a large entry and foyer with a grand circular staircase and take in the living room with original rough-hewn stenciled open beams, a beautiful travertine fireplace, an office with an enormous picture window to the fountain and canyon, and the TV den with coved ceilings and crowned windows.

The gourmet kitchen includes a large Wolf range, and exotic granite counters with rich cabinetry, a breakfast table, and lots of old-world charm. The dining room is uniquely finished with sumptuous paint and rich tile. The dining table seats 10 when fully extended. The fold-away doors on both the dining room and kitchen open to the beautiful terrace and canyon and allow a free flow of guests and views, when entertaining, or at home alone. Bring the outside in!

In the backyard, enjoy the spacious clay-tiled 1500 sq ft terrace with a large pergola built with oversized lumber, a trickling fountain, as well as a clay fireplace and a built-in outdoor grill, perfect for entertaining your family and friends.

Upstairs are 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master room has french doors to take in the green, quiet canyon, a large walk-in closet, and a master bathroom with rich cabinetry, a jacuzzi tub, and separate walk-in shower. For your morning coffee or evening wine, enjoy the cozy upstairs terrace with a charming view of the surrounding neighborhood, and the amazing succulent garden.

The Kensington commercial district is only a 15-minute walk away, where you will find some of San Diego's best restaurants with Mexican, Italian, French, and Japanese cuisines - as well as great cafes featuring breakfast, burgers, pizzas, wine, and microbreweries - and of course, Starbucks!

Kensington is known for its meandering streets of architecturally interesting homes, pleasant strolls, and friendly neighbors!

The charming Kensington commercial "main street" is only a short (15 min) walk away, where you will find some of San Diego's best restaurants with Mexican, Italian, French, and Japanese cuisines - as well as multiple cafes featuring breakfast, burgers, pizzas, wine, and microbreweries - and of course, Starbucks !

 Ponce's for authentic Mexican food and a tequila bar featuring delicious margaritas is a neighborhood staple and highly recommended!
