about this home's










Bright, Charming, Fantastic Location!!

Welcome to 145 Colusa Avenue, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom, level-in home on the El Cerrito and Kensington border, just a block from Kensington Circus. This sweet, sunny house has been thoughtfully upgraded and is ready for you to move in; and with multiple plus spaces, this property has loads of potential for updating catering to the new owners’ wants and needs.

The previous owner lovingly maintained and updated her home, installing dual-paned windows, re-roofing, seismic, and a drainage system. Her efforts on that front allowed Mary Cronin’s team at the Design Shop to focus their prep-for-sale work on fun additions like the new bathroom floor tile and light fixtures.

The choice was made to only lightly refresh the kitchen and dining area. We’ve left the vintage (and collectable) Frigidaire Flair roll-out stove. It’s easy to imagine opening the walls to the living and or dining spaces*. (Both doors leading to the kitchen were removed and are stored in the laundry area.) Could the dining room become a 3rd bedroom? The house next door, which is a mirror image of this one, has had a 2nd ensuite bathroom created out of closets and the shower. While this house is wonderful and ready to live in now, the future possibilities are inspiring! (and what’s the view from the roof?)

However you choose to live in this home, you’re going to love the location. A block away is the famous Kensington Circus with its classic Pub, Semifreddi’s original bakery, and a fantastic weekend farmers’ market. The dining and shopping of Solano Avenue are close by, the WalkScore® is 82, and BART is less than a mile away. We hope that you enjoy this rare property – a stellar, level-in home with a view that can be lived in as is and also holds enough potential to fulfill all your dreams.
