Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go back in time – even if it was just for a day? For most of us that’s just day dreaming but when this 96-year-old Toronto resident but “ordinary house” on the market everybody was shocked.
The house has been preserved as a virtual time capsule which has not been re-decorated since the 1960’s.
The house is a perfect encapsulation of 1960’s suburban design and has all the features of the time. What’s absolutely gob-smacking about the house is that everything is still in pristine condition.
The original carpets, the vinyl flooring, the wallpaper and even the chandeliers are all still in their original condition.
Seeing this hidden time piece leaves the new owners in a real predicament. What do you do with this house? It feels almost wrong to strip it all away and renovate the house. For most families a renovation is a must when you consider the fact that the kitchen is about 7 decades out of fashion. Nevertheless its an amazingly interesting thing to see…
Step through the front door and its 60 years back in time..
Its amazing to think that the lime green walls and pink sofa survived for that long
Most of the furniture is still in mint condition and is worth a lot in itself
Wallpaper has been in and out of fashion twice since this was done
The stove dates from the 1950’s and is still in perfect working order
This breakfast nook will take you right back in time…complete with pink upholstery
Wrought-iron furniture is definitely fashionable again, but this is the real thing
Yes, that is a purple carpet, with matching lavender color walls
The built in wardrobes are still in immaculate condition
Compare this to most teenagers’ rooms today…
A perfect example of sixties elegance with gold and brass in the bathroom
The basement bar complete with wood paneling and lazy-boy
The days when a laundry was still a proper room
