1917–1920, Muhleman and Kayhoe, builders. 3000 block Kensington Ave.

On opposite sides of Kensington Avenue are two groups of residences built by one of Richmond's most prolific construction firms of the period 1910–1950. Muhleman and Kayhoe apparently had their own in-house designers who followed the broader national trends in housing and style. The row on the south side of the street is a mix of three-bay Renaissance Revival and Arts and Crafts houses unified by columned porches. On the north side the style is Tudor Revival, expressed in a profusion of differently shaped, steeply pitched roofs and some half timbering.
