101 Kenyon, Kensington

We have an interesting home to share today. The original house was built in 1939, but almost no vestiges are left of it today. The entire structure was reimagined sometime in the late seventies by Bruce Chisholm of Metamorphosis Architecture and Construction. The home is a wonderful example of late mid-century bay region modernism. It is full of wood paneling and lofts, large glazed openings and skylights. There is even rumored to be a secret door somewhere. All of this contained in a footprint that though relatively modest feels quite grand because of the ample light and thoughtful use of space.
