Kensington Place HOA



The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) in order to create and maintain a community of high quality and visual harmony has established these Design Standards. Design Standards govern the architectural control requests made by residents and are not arbitrary. In the event of a conflict between the Declaration of Protective Covenants for your community and the Design Standards, the Covenants shall prevail.


Any addition, alteration or change of any kind to the exterior of your home or lot requires written approval, in advance. Requests for all projects must be made in writing to the ARC on an Architectural Control Committee (ACC) form in care of:
Kensington Place HOA
P.O. Box 484
Lithia Springs, GA 30122

All ARC requests must include the following:
1) A site plan of your property (received a closing) showing the location of you addition or alteration.
2) A full description of your project, including dimensions, colors, and materials used.

The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) will respond to your request within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt by the committee.


No exterior addition or alteration may be commenced on any lot without written approval from the ARC prior to the start of the project. If approval was not granted, a completed project will be label as a violation.

The following Design Standards have been adopted for your community:


Fencing must originate from within the rear third of the house. Exceptions to this guideline may be granted at the sole discretion of the ARC. Every effort must be made on fence installations to follow the finished grade of the land along the fence line. The following fence types are acceptable: split rail, solid cedar, shadow box or picket. Maximum fence height is six (6) feet. In no event will a chain link, wire or barbed wire fence be approved. Dog pens and runs are prohibited. Picket fence must stay natural color or painted white, (6) feet fence must stay a nature color.


Any addition or alteration to a lot which makes a noticeable change from the street, or which might cause erosion, requires approval in advance, including retaining walls, landscape timbers, railroad ties, etc. Landscaping should relate to the existing terrain and natural features of the lot. Borders may not exceed four (4) inches above the ground and the material used must be of earth tones.


No artificial or plastic decorations shall be permitted on the exterior of any property. Exterior sculpture, birdbaths, birdhouses, fountains, flags, etc., must be approved in advance.


No colored lights shall be used on any portion of a lot except that decorative, ornamental and holiday lighting that will be permitted during the holiday season from the week of Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day. Landscape lighting must be approved in advance.


Vegetable gardens, hammocks and play equipment must be located between the rear of the dwelling and the rear lot line. Where play equipment is installed on a corner lot and is visible from the street, it must be constructed of natural unpainted wood. Basketball goals must be mounted on a standard black post with a white or clear glass backboard. Location of basketball goals must be approved in advance.


Any owner desiring to install an antenna or satellite dish must notify the ARC. Exterior antennae and satellite dishes may be no larger than one meter in diameter and no higher than twelve feet above the roofline. Transmission-only antennae are prohibited. Antennae and dishes shall be located in a place shielded from view from the street and from other lots to the maximum extent possible.


All mailbox structures will be standardized and must be repainted and/or replaced with the same color and style as the original installation.


As the exteriors of homes need repairing, any change from the original color scheme must be approved in advance. The request submittal should include color chips for ARC review. Repainting in the same color does not require ARC approval.


All sheds must be approved in advance. The following guidelines must be followed:
No larger than 8’ by 12’
No higher than 8’
Color must be the same (or a close match) as the house
Roof shingles must match the house
Metal sheds are prohibited
