Property Description for 511 E MURDOCH RD, PHILADELPHIA PA 19119

Spectacular 1930's Art Deco home with abundant original features and fixtures. Three large bedrooms, main bedroom with walkout balcony/sun deck, sunroom, formal dining room. Very fun home to live in, great for entertaining on a lovely street in very desirable section of East Mt. Airy. As you walk up the sidewalk to this home designed by Philadelphia architect James A. Nolen Jr., close your eyes and listen. Can you hear the cheers of the crowd as Jesse Owens wins his 4th Gold Medal at the Berlin Olympics? Entering the front door, to your left is a light-filled sun room and living room with an elegant wood burning fireplace, where you sit and read the first edition of Margaret Mitchell's "Gone With The Wind". Getting hungry, you dance your way across the hardwood floors throughout the first floor to the dining room and it's ornate crown molding with the original sunken fixtures that bath it in warm light, as Benny Goodman and his orchestra are playing on the radio. You head to the galley kitchen to fetch canap~s and cocktails and make coffee for your friends. While you wait for the water to boil on the gas cook stove, you open the steel case windows, which are a part of every light filled room, and look out onto the garden on the side of the house. Feeling sleepy, you head up the Art Deco stairs to the second floor, which features a master-suite, with walkout balcony/sun deck, hall bathroom and 2 additional bedrooms. Featured in the April 2007 edition of "Old-House Interiors" magazine, you see the house in its 1936 glory, to which you wish to restore it with a little TLC. **Home is being Sold As-Is**
