Arts & Crafts Heritage

  • Secluded green location, yet still close to everything
  • Bikeable to new Google campus

Inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement that defined California architecture in the early 20th century, Kensington Place combines classic Craftsman details with modern functionality. Just as ever-present as our nod to California’s past, is a landscape designed for living and recharging in the best possible way. Kensington Place’s lush grounds, as well as our name, were inspired by one of the most renowned urban sanctuaries in the world—Kensington Gardens in the center of London. You can have the best of both worlds on the upper edge of Sunnyvale.

Close to Everything, But a World Away
Step out the front door and you’re just a quick walk to the VTA’s Sunnyvale Station. Hop on the 101 or 237 for easy access to Google, Facebook, Apple, or just about any Bay Area employer. Or, keep it close to home. We’re a quick walk from Baylands Park and a range of green spaces and great outdoors to explore. Not to be outdone, the grounds at Kensington Place boast a grove-like setting surrounded by trees and verdant landscaping. Almost as spacious?Our apartment homes with large living rooms and ample indoor/outdoor space.

Plenty to Do with Plenty of Reasons to Do Nothing At All
A vaulted ceiling, wood-burning fireplace, stainless steel appliances, and an oversized closet wonderland of coziness welcome you home. And, because this is California after all, there are abundant windows and open terraces to make the most of the best weather in the world. When you want to get out, there are rolling gardens surrounding the all-year saltwater lap pool (chlorine? c’mon). When you want to get it all out, there’s the 24/7 fitness center. And when you need to stretch it out, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better spot than our newly renovated, all-amenities-included, California Craftsman-inspired clubhouse that we call The Guild.

Everything to Make Your Place All Yours
Past the vine-covered trellises and landscaped pathways, beyond the architectural and design nods to the California Craftsman style, you’ll discover a world of spaces to live your best life. With oversized floor plans (up to 3-bedrooms), top-floor townhouse-style homes, and little-coder treats like our tactile tic-tac-toe playground, we have space to grow and grow into. Our onsite Think Tank makes old-school business centers look like a hacker basement. The outdoor barbecue bar, with a built-in cooler, is right next to the saltwater pool. And then there’s our clubhouse, The Guild. Whip up a feast in the chef’s kitchen, or chill with one of the books from the in-house library. The Guild is designed from the ground up for everything from your next big bash to comfortable co-working. All with handcrafted local art and modern California style, all open 24/7. All reservable, too, free of charge.

We’re In It Together
Everyone who works at Kensington Place (and at Prometheus) gives back on the company dime. Porch (Promethean Outreach and Community Help) is a program created to help the communities we serve. That’s why we’re proud to support Second Harvest Food Bank, adding 30,000 meals to the tables of those in need in our neighborhood and beyond.
