The charming Tudor at 3405 Stanford Avenue is an optical illusion. From the front, the home looks so petite that it could almost be a playhouse. The façade is decorated with old-school details, like scalloped tiles, faux windows, and a pair of Adirondack chairs on a neatly manicured front lawn. Indeed, at first glance, this University Park home is out of a storybook.
With that in mind, you may be expecting a compact and cozy interior. Not quite. This deceptively spacious home boasts 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 3,500 square feet of living space.
The home was recently renovated both inside and out, including the beautifully executed color change. The bones of the home, however, haven’t changed since 1929. Each cosmetic upgrade was meant to enhance, not erase, the property’s history.
The interior walls are a crisp white, but each room retained its character thanks to the home’s 1920s features. Start exploring, and you’ll notice the shiplap ceilings, dramatic crown molding, well-preserved wood floors, arched doorways, and built-in shelves.
The backyard is accessible through several sets of French doors. Outside, you’ll find a sparkling pool and several sitting areas ideal for basking in the sun.
A final standout is a playroom on the second floor, which embraces the home’s Tudor silhouette. Its sloped ceilings and angular walls form idyllic nooks that invite you to curl up with a book.
