Bright interiors and a condo-equivalent price make this $1.5M Kensington townhouse a must-see

May 15, 2018

With a pale Scandinavian vibe and sunlight around every corner, this modestly-sized single-family home at 268 East 9th Street in Kensington has been thoughtfully renovated for modern life. Three exposures, a skylight, a quaint–and rare–front porch and a large fenced backyard add to the country-in-the-city feeling.

On the parlor floor, old-house charms include a vintage wooden door, stripped wood stair rail, bay windows, a decorative fireplace and bleached pine floors.

Pocket doors lead to a full-sized dining room, with a powder room/laundry nearby. There’s plenty of room for entertaining, and in true Scandi style, clever solutions like storage tucked under the staircase keep clutter at bay. A new central air system keeps things cool on the first two floors.

The home’s kitchen is trim and stylish with slate floors, Caesarstone countertops, glossy white cabinets, white subway tiles and a farmhouse sink. Exposed brick and wood shelving add rustic charm. Also charming: A side garden just outside the kitchen door for outdoor summer dining.

Upstairs are three large bedrooms and a smaller room that would make a good home office or nursery.

As expected the shared bath on this floor features gleaming Carrara marble tiles, plus creature comforts like a heated towel rack, and a deep tub.

The home’s lower level is finished and ready to be a mother-in-law or guest suite or a family media room or playroom. A windowed English basement offers still more storage space including a garden utility room. A second full bathroom–with original clawfoot tub, of course–serves the downstairs.
