DESCRIPTION:

31 Franciscan Way just went through a complete remodel. The home was modified to showcase the views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay from the living room, familyroom, kitchen and two bedrooms. The backyard was leveled to create an outdoor space perfect for children or entertaining and the detached artist studio can easily be converted back into a garage.

Franciscan Way is a quiet tree lined street in Kensington, a town just over one square
mile in size with a population just over 5,000. Kensington is known for its proximity to
Tilden and Wildcat Canyon Regional Parks, Kensington Hilltop Elementary School (K-6)
& charming shopping districts. This house is located just 1.5 miles from El Cerrito Plaza
BART and shopping center, which includes Trader Joe’s & Starbuck’s.
