Property Description

Showings begin September 28. Welcome to 1201 Stratford Avenue, a timeless gem nestled within the leafy neighborhood of Elkins Park. This stately Colonial home, a testament to the elegance of a bygone era, stands proudly with all the grace of its 1900 origins. With over 3,800 square feet of living space, this residence boasts a majestic presence that promises a life of refined comfort and historic charm. Approaching this grand residence, you'll be drawn in by its commanding stone faade, a tribute to its enduring construction and classic architecture. Stepping through the threshold, you'll be greeted by a sprawling center hall, an opulent introduction to the character and sophistication that await within. Original details adorn every corner, but perhaps none as captivating as the ornate stairwell. It spirals upward like a work of art, a mesmerizing display of craftsmanship, illuminated by the large window above its landing. The heart of this home is its updated eat-in kitchen with modern conveniences. The breakfast table bathed in natural light will be the ideal spot for your morning coffee, while a pantry, beverage center and well-placed mobile island cater to your culinary needs. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stovetop, wall oven and microwave, promising endless culinary adventures for the chef. The living room is a sanctuary of light and warmth, with sets of windows on each side that flood the room with sunlight. A gas fireplace adds a touch of coziness and invites you to unwind and relax. Currently serving as an office, the sunroom or den is a versatile space, perfect for work or leisure. It offers a tranquil retreat with views of the surrounding greenery, providing an inspiring environment for your pursuits. Its secret, access to a private corner patio with a hot tub, where you can soak away your cares in blissful seclusion. A powder room, located under the stairs, completes the first level. The upper levels reveal their own treasures, not the least of which is the stunning arch-framed views of the towering center hall and scenery outside the window. The second level offers two bedrooms, a hall bathroom and a primary suite that is a true sanctuary, complete with primary bathroom, walk-in closet, and dressing room. Venture to the third floor, where two additional bedrooms, a storage room, and a full bathroom await. This level is a realm of possibilities, a canvas for your imagination. The basement is partially finished, with a spacious exercise room where you can pursue your wellness goals, a powder room, and a large storage closet with shelves to ensure surplus items are neatly organized. The laundry facilities are also located on this level. Beyond the home's walls, the meticulously landscaped backyard beckons with its brick patio, fenced-in garden, and detached garage. Here, outdoor dreams come true, from al fresco dining and entertaining to gardening to simply basking in nature's beauty. Location, too, is a treasure. The house is within easy reach of the regional rail train, offering direct access to Temple University, Center City, and Philadelphia International Airport. Shops, restaurants and parks are just a leisurely stroll away. Welcome to 1201 Stratford Avenue, where historic charm meets modern luxury in a neighborhood steeped in grace and tradition. Don't miss your chance to own a masterpiece of Elkins Park's rich heritage. Please note. Buyer love letters are discouraged.
