Kensington is an unincorporated area of Contra Costa County that borders Alameda County . It’s an intimate community with small town feel, big city sophistication and good real estate values. It rests in the hills above El Cerrito and north of Berkeley and on either side of Arlington Avenue. That’s where the SF express and local buses stop and it’s the main drag through Kensington taking you almost everywhere you’d want to go.
The library and community park, with neighborhood tennis and basketball courts, is open to all. Other outdoor activities are just over the ridge at the magnificent Charles Lee Tilden Park and Lake Anza. The many attractions of Berkeley city and the University of California are ten minutes away by car. The highly rated Kensington Hilltop Elementary School is right up the hill surrounded by the parks, open space and one of the most beautiful views in the East Bay.
In short, Kensington is beautiful and welcoming, the eateries are fun and first-rate, and both kids and adults have lots of places to play. It’s suburban living in an urban environment with a view, and the best-kept secret in the East Bay!
