7 Highgate, Kensington

There is no mention of it in the listing, but this beautiful Kensington mid-century is another home by local designer Donald Ross. Ross was a photographer by trade, but he designed and built houses as well to supplement his income. He is probably best known for the cluster of four modest glass residences that he built on the lot adjacent to his own home in Kensington.

The home we feature today is a much larger commission, comprising over 4000 square feet of living space on two separate lots. It is an impressive structure that is full of great period embellishment and plenty of Ross’s characteristically thoughtful detailing.
