We were very excited to have the opportunity to build this grand custom home in the city we live in....new builds are rarely found in Kensington due to the lack of vacant parcels.
The design is a contemporary take on traditional architecture. The setting is beautiful with inspiring Bay views. Stately outside and comfortably chic inside....a fantastic combination.
Complete with five bedrooms and three and one half baths, this home was built to Bee Renovated's highest standards and exemplifies refined taste and quality. Featuring an enviable level-in floor plan, with a tastefully restrained palette, emulating a sophisticated yet casual elegance. Impressive scale and volume define the many spaces created for relaxing, playing, and entertaining.
The grand entry hall, anchored with a stunning capiz fixture, features an gracious and wide staircase with custom designed white dramatic white oak and ebony slatted screening walls to add dimension and depth to the space. The dramatic living room has soaring vaulted ceilings, a stunning yet simple rift cut oak fireplace and a grand scale open dining room. The state of the art kitchen showcases Viking and Monogram series stainless appliances, including wine refrigerator, stone counters and hand selected rustic tile. Most rooms have access to a new Larch wood decks with steps to the grand garden and sprawling property.
Double doors open to the West side decks, looking out to the Golden gate Bridge and inspiring bay views. The home sits directly above the famed and the picturesque Carmelite Convent grounds. The landscaped rear garden has a sweeping lawn and a beautifully terraced garden with a variety of newly planted fruit trees.
The entry level features primary public rooms and a luxe principal suite with walk in closet and custom bath. A sexy powder room, dark and dramatic, is convenient to the homes public spaces.
The lower family level boasts four additional bedrooms (One presented as an office) and a second luxe principal suite. A large family room with wet bar and refrigeration, offers the perfect space for wind down, homework or movie time.
