On the Market: Five Stratford Road

No. 5 Stratford Road, designed by Edward L. Palmer, is a brick colonial revival house designed in the most classic style. The house was featured in a full page ad in the Roland Park Homes, Gardens and People magazine in 1927. 
It is now on the market, and here is what the real estate listing has to say:
A stunning example of Edward L. Palmer’s fine architectural detail, 5 Stratford spares no expense in grandeur and grace. 
Established wisteria greets you upon arrival as you enter the black and white, marble checked foyer.
The first floor features a formal dining room adjacent to the kitchen.Expansive family room includes a wood burning fireplace with an attached sunroom and backyard access.  
Light-filled breakfast room opens to an expanded bluestone patio and lush backyard.
A grand staircase leads you to the second floor which includes an updated Master suite with 2 vanities and glass shower. A second full bath on this level serves the remaining 2 bedrooms.  3rd floor boasts an additional 2 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Basement  finished with polished concrete floors, wet bar, and half bath. Finished basement also includes an area for a gym or playroom. 

Large grass backyard, meticulously landscaped and 2 car garage. 
Thoughtful updates throughout including full HVAC system with hospital-grade filter system, updated and new bathrooms, custom storm windows, new electrical panel, new sewer, water lines and much more. 
Another great P&L house!

  1. I LOVE this website! Found it as I live just down the road from the Biltmore Forest Country Club and asked the manager which architect designed it. So funny it was a guy from Baltimore. I'm a traditional residential architect and work on a lot of old houses. Some of my new work can be seen on my website: I'm wondering if you might be able to help me lay out a little tour of Palmer's work in and around Guilford. Planning to be in Balto in late September. Again, great website!
