Welcome Home to 512 North Kensington Street! This light and airy 1927 Sears catalog home, model Olivia, has been lovingly cared for by the owner for the past 31 years, with many improvements. A second floor addition was added in 2003 providing a spacious master bedroom, open study or nursery, guest room, loads of closet or storage space, and a unique bathroom. The west facing master bedroom enjoys great sun exposure, a skylight on the north side, and the opportunity to add a second floor porch to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets even more. When you enter the front foyer of the house a wall of windows face the street but privacy is protected by an ivy barrier along the front of the fenced in property. The main floor has 1” thick plaster walls that provide great sound insulation, added structural strength, and good insulation against the weather. The built in bookcase in the living room can handle a decent sized library. The main floor bathroom has more storage space than much larger ones, and a vintage medicine cabinet with a slot for disposing of used razor blades. In the dining room you’ll enjoy many warm, memorable dinner parties with a short trip to the kitchen for seconds. The efficient kitchen has significant cabinet space, 2 pantrys, and a large bay window with seating for 4. Perfect to feed the family before heading off to work or school. The finished basement has a natural gas fireplace, a wall of built in cabinets originally designed as an entertainment center, a full bathroom, a small bedroom or storage area, and room for a large screen TV setup for the kids or watching games. The laundry room has lots of shelves for supplies, a utility sink, and a recessed area large enough for a wine rack or cooler. A block away is one of the many bike paths in Arlington for quick access to the Ballston Metro station, and kid and dog parks. The house is centrally located with easy routes out of town in any direction. It may be a .15 acre lot, but it has been well utilized with few needed improvements. A 10’ x 12’ greenhouse with shelving provides ample space for wintering those cherished plants and getting ready for the next growing season. The hardscape was recently upgraded and gravel strips provide lots of room for containers of flowers or produce. The two sheds offer plenty of storage space and room for gardening tools. The large shed can be easily insulated and power run to it for a workshop or he/she shed. This solid, well-built home has everything you could ask for with great living space both inside and out, and a wonderful outside retreat area ready for additional landscape features. This 4 bed, 3 bath rancher is located in the sought after Bluemont neighborhood (originally Bon Air) of Arlington with public transportation and stores within walking distance.
