It is rare to find a Storybook style home in Kensington and when the current owner moved to Kensington in 1986, he & his wife were smitten with the beauty & craftsmanship of this home. This special home exudes character & charm, from the rounded brick fireplace in the living rm, to the beautifully carved stairway railing & built-ins throughout, to the rounded entry hall. The feeling is that of a fairy tale or a romantic English cottage far, far away. Built by P.C. Clausen in 1936, 272 Purdue has 3 levels, a beautiful, level backyard w/ a Dogwood tree, a prolific Meyer lemon tree, a Japanese maple, roses & hydrangea, & is close to Tilden Park & public transit. The main level offers a liv rm w/ vaulted beamed ceiling & random plank floors, a dining rm w/ built-ins, a cheerful kitchen w/ updated stainless appliances, leaded glass cabinetry & a skylight. The upper level has 2 bedrooms, one w/ French doors to the deck & a lovely bathroom. The lower level has a family rm, laundry & full bath.
