It looks a bit like some of the furniture and details are from the late70’s/80’s, but I can still dig it. My favorite detail has to be the orange banquet in the kitchen, what is yours?

    This is the groovy pad I dreamed of living in as a kid; instead, we always had that darn green Herculon faux-lonial sofa from Sears. Sigh. Especially like the brown tile bath, and is that cork or terrazzo flooring I see?

    Its a great house, but the kitchen would probably be the deal breaker. I just don’t think I could deal with that narrow, dark,and seemingly windowless kitchen.

      I believe the windows are above the orange tile. It appears that they have blinds on them. I would prefer them to be uncovered.

    There was an estate sale in this house a few weeks ago and most of the furniture in the photos was bring sold. There was a good amount of interest in it.

    Unfortunately those high windows in the kitchen and dining room would make me feel claustrophobic. I like to be able to see outside.
