I'm excited to share with you 114 Saint Albans Road. It is one of a very few MacGregor homes built in Kensington. There have only been 2 owners. This home was originally built for Charles MacGregor's nephew John. It is one of the larger homes in Kensington, with 5 bedrooms, 4 baths and just over 3500 sq feet of living space. Generous sized living and dining rooms with access to a deck w/Bay views. On its own private level, you will find a spectacular master bedroom suite which includes an office, cathedral ceiling, a private deck and unobstructed views of the entire Bay, SF and the Golden Gate Bridge. On the lower level you will find a completely renovated downstairs with new bath, laundry room, a large family room and John MacGregor's original large workshop. The home is 2 blocks from the highly regarded Kensington Hilltop Elementary School, which in May 2018 was designated a Distinguished School by the California Department of Education.

At-a-Glance

Once an undeveloped grassy hillside that was home to dairy farms and pastures, primary residential development in Kensington didn’t begin until the turn of the twentieth century. That’s when droves of families, driven by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the Berkeley Fire of 1923 would come to lay down roots.

Named for the London borough of South Kensington, birthplace to one of the city’s original surveyors, Kensington would experience slow but steady development over the decades that followed. Today, it is a tight-knit, affluent community that possesses a deep sense of hometown pride.

In a Word

Living Here

Just minutes from North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, Kensington is home to its own fine and casual dining establishments (standouts include the Kensington Circus Pub and The Arlington) as well as two quaint shopping districts, the Colusa Circle and the Arlington Shops. There’s also a not-to-be-missed farmer’s market that takes place each Sunday.

Good-to-Know

For a weekend stroll with the family or quiet time with a book, don’t miss Blake Garden, a 10.6-acre public garden located four miles north of the Berkeley campus that boasts stunning views of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate.

Why Kensington?

Residents are drawn to Kensington for its sense of community, quiet charm, and magnificent views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay.
