A restored Kensington home from 1875 blends new tile and paint with old, 19th-century details for $400,000.
The three-bed, 1.5-bath home just came on the market and offers both a cheery and romantic vibe, with bright white and blue tiles, chandeliers, and skylights.
The first floor has a living room with a decorative fireplace, and original woodwork and crown molding. A dining room, kitchen, and breakfast nook also sit on this floor—each with tons of light.
A big draw of the space is the wood staircase, which has intricate detailing in the railing.
Upstairs you’ll find the three bedrooms, along with skylights, bay windows, and more decorative fireplaces.
The house has seen a slight price jump since it last went on the market in 2009 and sold for $265,000. If you’re eager to check it out there are two open houses from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
