Description

Historic Kensington! Significant potential for designation and Mills Act. A part of Kensington's Historic past this Spanish Colonial Revival was once in the hands of former Mexican President General Pasqual Ortiz Rubio. Its colorful past is matched with the incredible artwork of renowned Mexican artist and set designer Ignacio Martinez Rendon in the front enclosed loggia. The layout of this home is grand with a sizable front entry on the other side of the elaborate and unique front door. Upon entering, the family room is off the entry to the right with its corner fireplace, original lighting fixtures and elaborate hand painted ceiling. Ahead through the beveled glass doors is a magnificent step down living room with beamed ceiling, majestic fireplace and ample room to create a few seating areas. Formal dining will hold a table for 12 or more with dual chandeliers. The kitchen with vintage appliances will please any chef and the adjacent nook is extremely charming and inviting. Upstairs, three bedrooms await as well as a hall vintage bath. Up just a few more steps is the grand main bedroom with enough square footage to have a seating area. The vintage bath is off in a separate alcove and again very spacious. The fixtures and tile work all original are amazing! Two bedrooms on the level below the first floor are versatile in their use and a three quarter bath separates them. Nine hundred square feet of patio on the main level all in Spanish pavers and the central fountain sets the stage. Plenty of room to have several tables and chairs, all overlooking the verdant canyon. Under the patio is a series of storage areas as defined by the arched doorways and green doors. The stunning canyon is complete with stone retaining walls throughout. A once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of history and an extraordinary example Spanish Colonial Revival in the great neighborhood of Kensington!
