From the outside, this house in Philadelphia, USA looks quite ordinary.
But inside is any vintage lover’s dream.
The 1950s house has been left untouched for 63 years, meaning its delightful vintage interior has been impeccably preserved.
There’s a buttery bathroom, vintage-style furniture, and original 50’s appliances.
And now the house is on the market – for $270,000 (£196,500). A bargain, we think.
Step through the front door and you’re instantly transported back in time, with plush green carpets, floral prints and a vintage television in the lounge.
This leads to the dining area, which has a wooden table and chairs, along with a tall cabinet for all your auto boot crockery.
The kitchen is as colorful as you’d hope – all canary yellow tiles, orange wallpaper and pink cabinets – and has an antique oven and stove.
There’s even an old landline phone on the wall – in the shade of a brilliant peach tree.
Slightly less interesting are the dolls that are guarding the area, but perhaps the end buyer will find these statues cute rather than scary.
There’s another seating area downstairs in the basement, complete with wood paneled walls, red fur rugs and a tape recorder.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with retro wallpaper and conflicting prints.
For us, the bathroom was the star of the show.
Yes, it’s a classic buttery suite with a green tub, matching toilet and sink, and patterned tile floors. Dreamy.
Daniel Hoban, real estate agent introducing the property, said: “The property has remained in the possession of the original owner since 1959 – everything has been superbly maintained.
Anyone in the US with cash to spare, we highly recommend buying this place.
Just promise us you won’t gut the interior and it’s all modern.
