About the Community of Kensington
On April 9, 1910 a map was filed, and one of three mid-city urban neighborhoods was born. Tucked away from the inner city hubbub, Kensington, a quaint upscale neighborhood known for homes that exude architectural style including such classics as The Craftsman and the distinct California Spanish Style home, Kensington holds a uniqueness of its own. Pristine and full of character it mixes old world charm with village flair! This little hidden gem is highly sought after, desired by many who want to call it home. Overlooking Mission Valley is the 115 acre subdivision famous for its distinctive California architectural themes. Designed by local architect Richard Requa, who brought in Mediterranean influences with The Davis Baker Company of Pasadena. With picturesque palm lined streets, locals stroll through the tiny business district along the single main artery, Adams Ave, fine and casual dining, a visit to a coffee house or two, a quick stop at the new health food store, or even a visit to the local library!
About the Community of Talmadge
Known as one of the Mission Valley Rim communities, Talmadge, was named after three silent film star sisters, Norma, Natalie and Constance. These prominent women promoted the Talmadge Park community in the 20’s. This cozy neighborhood full of eclectic charm, extends the ambiance of its neighbor, Kensington. During the 1920’s stretching into the 1950’s the Lichty Brothers developed Talmadge Park and Talmadge Estates. Standing the test of time, these homes are still admired for their quality and custom construction. Once you discover this lovely little Niche, you may want to tell all your friends!!
