Kensington is a residential subdivision very conveniently located 3.2 miles East of Downtown Bentonville, Arkansas. It can be accessed from HWY 72 E approximatley 1 mile East of I-540, and is only 4.5 miles from the Wal-Mart Home Office. All the conveniences of town are within a couple miles. There are elementary schools, middle schools, junior highs, dance studios, gymnastics studios, walking and biking trails, grocery stores, fast food, etc, etc, all very close by. The new Crystal Bridges Museum scheduled to be completed 11-11-11 is a just a couple miles away
Kensington has 97 single family homes. The lots are sizeable and mostly around .3 acres. The first homes started hitting the market in 2002. In the last 12months homes have sold from a low of $284,500 to as high as $449,900. The homes are mostly custom homes, but some Builder’s built some homes as investments called spec homes or speculative investment homes. I would estimate that 75% were custom homes while 25% were Builder spec homes.
The terrain is varied from flat lots with concrete slab foundations to hillside lots with walkout basements or crawlspaces. Some of the streets are on a simple grid pattern while others follow the top of a ridge and the lots slope away from either side of the street. A walk down the quiet streets shows an eclectic mix of custom home styles from Traditional to Ranch to French provincial.
