Kensington Real Estate
Kensington real estate provides its inhabitants the opportunity to live in a tranquil part of New York City. Kensington is located just a little south of Prospect Park in the western section of Brooklyn. The neighborhood is more specifically bounded by Greenwood Cemetery and Caton Avenue on the north, 18th Avenue on the south, Coney Island Avenue on the east and by both McDonald Avenue and 36th Street on the west, which separates the neighborhood from Borough Park. Being located on the eastern side of Brooklyn, Kensington offers its residents a fairly simple commute into downtown Manhattan with the option of taking a 30-minute subway ride or a 15-minute trip on the express bus.
Real estate in Kensington is fairly consistent throughout the neighborhood. Residents can typically find single- to three-family red-brick homes, along with a selection of condos and coops. Prices of the various housing options are average for Brooklyn; however, monthly rents and home values in Kensington are fairly cheaper than in bordering neighborhoods, such as Windsor Terrace and Park Slope. Moreover, a small section of houses located along tree-lined streets in the northern part of the neighborhood, typically sell the quickest for the highest prices.
Although Kensington’s commercial district is fairly small, only offering a couple restaurants and very small shops, the neighborhood makes up for it in almost every other category. Being located at the southern border of Prospect Park, residents have full access to numerous ball fields, jogging paths and picnic areas. The neighborhood is also home to Kensington Stables, which offers horse riding lessons to people of all ages.
