From the Zillow listing:


Extraordinary find! This striking Victorian Tudor in Melrose Park is poised and ready for an elegant update. 1015 Stratford Ave stands out in aesthetic appeal, has great bones and high-value features, such as front and rear porches, 7 comfortably-sized bedrooms, 2 gorgeous fireplaces, multiple sunrooms, and an oversized lot. Many alluring characteristics of this property are intact and have stood the test of time. For instance, the charming retro wallpaper is intact in most of the rooms. When you open the door from the front porch into the front vestibule, the beautiful fireplace in this main room will catch your eye and there’s another beautiful mantel mirrored in the dining room. The formal dining room opens to an east-facing sunroom. Butler pantries are currently trending and there’s a butler’s pantry here situated conveniently between the dining room and eat-in kitchen! There’s also a hidden back stairwell in the kitchen leading to the second floor. Rounding out the first floor is a formal living room and also a cute powder room. Take the main staircase to the second floor and you’ll find 4 spacious bedrooms and two of these bedrooms adjoin with their own additional rooms, for recreation or hobby perhaps. Your main bathroom is clad with retro ceramic tile and a neat MCM style double sink. There’s 3 more bedrooms on the 3rd floor, possibly 4 since one room was used strictly for storage, and another full bath to restore with a tub. There is also an attic and laundry is currently in the basement. Great location! Stroll to nearby shopping and highly-rated establishments like Haven Local, Le Onde, and Roling’s Bakery near the Elkins Park train station. Plus, it’s just 4 blocks to the Melrose Park train station to commute to Center City Philadelphia. Unlock the potential and restore this stately property to its rightful glory! Get the ball rolling and make your appointment today!
