Description for 4538 Kensington Drive, San Diego, CA 92116
BOM! A beautiful classic Spanish-style home with an investment opportunity to add one additional unit to the property because of RS-1-7 zoning. The home is light & airy with many original features that include the original front door with a beveled glass oval window, beautiful fireplace with fabulous Batchelder tile & warm gumwood book shelves including a vintage drop down secretary desk. These beautiful cabinets and glass doors flank each side of the fireplace. Both the living and dining rooms feature coved ceilings. The dining room has the original beveled mirror and a custom made cherry wood built-in buffet. This classic home features original hardwood floors and moldings and window frames. The living room windows still have the original glass and looks out at a classic Kensington street view. Some of the interior doors and floor moldings have been refinished and stained to match the living room built-ins. Glass knobs adorn the interior doors throughout this home which adds to the charm and authenticity of this property. The home has larger size bedrooms for its 1924 age. There is a remodeled bathroom with extensive tile, a large pedestal sink and tub/shower. Gleaming hardwood floors and freshly painted interior and exterior makes this home ready to move in! Newer FAG and A/C are other desired features of this property. The kitchen has been updated with an urban edgy feel that includes trendy green concrete countertops , upgraded S.S. 6 burner gas stove/oven, S.S. refrigerator, S.S. dishwasher and cherry wood cabinets. The original swinging wood door between kitchen and dining room is still present. The exterior architecture of this home is exquisite. The original arches that flank each side of this home have great curb appeal as well as the newly installed trendy drought tolerant front yard. The driveway has a newly poured tinted concrete, and is over 83 feet long so it can accommodate ample off-street parking. The classic red front porch is quite large...
