"Own a piece of history on a fabulous tree lined street in Sugar House. This 2-story home was built by Claude Richards in 1910 for his family. Claude was the visionary and developer for the esteemed Highland Park Area and this home was the first home in the development. The unique Craftsman Style home boasts a large front porch as it was in 1910 with plenty of room to relax and a porch swing too. Original architecture elements were respected and maintained in the home renovation that began in 1985. The kitchen has quarter-sawn oak cabinetry with a granite countertop, quarter-sawn oak wainscoting and heated tile flooring. The formal dining area is the perfect setting for small or large gatherings, with a built-in classic wooden hutch and a gas fireplace. The home has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Laundry room is on the second floor near the bedrooms. Large family room downstairs has the original 2-sided fireplace. Some original windows have been kept for charm; many have been upgraded to wood Pella windows. The main floor has stunning quarter-sawn oak wood floors with birch and mahogany inlays. Antique wood vanities with marble countertops are in two bathrooms. Drive into the property, through the porte-cochere into a motor courtyard, to the red brick 6-car garage with extra height, width & depth and 9-Foot garage doors. A new Bartile roof was put on the home in 2013. Beautifully lush setting on a rare, private .52 of an acre. Entertain on a spacious covered deck with sunshades, looking out onto a large green space with a playhouse, clubhouse and swing set. The home has a back-up generator and a heated driveway. In the 1930's Hugh B. Brown owned the home and raised eight children in it. The home was featured in the 2003 Heritage Home Tour. The Stratford House has been the location for numerous TV shows (Touched by an Angel, Everwood, 12 Gifts of Christmas), Movies (Just Let Go, Being Charlie) and many commercials (Zions Bank, Lagoon, among others).
