July 28, 2011Retro Ranch House
By Sara In AZ
Well, Mike and I are still on the house hunt here in AZ. The following house is one we went through awhile back. This was not the house for us, but it did have some really great, original features.
This house was built in 1956 and has 3378 sq feet.
Here is the front of the house. It was a sweet little ranch house!
I thought the original front door was so cool, I just love that color on the top and bottom!
This is the dining room where they had this awesome built-in hutch. Love!
These are the cool wooden beamed ceilings in the dining room. So pretty!
Here is the family room. I really liked this room because it felt so warm and cozy. This room had knotty pine wooden ceilings and the whole area where the TV is was knotty pine too. Super sweet!
This is one of the original lights in the family room.
Gold fleck counter alert!!!
And yes, they DID have a pink bathroom! Oh gosh, I hope it still lives to this day!
Pink tile counter and sink!
I love these old floors with the gold flecks embedded in them.
This was a pocket door that partitioned off the bedrooms from the formal living room. It was original and had little plants and glitter embedded in it. It was really cool.
The formal living room. Love that fireplace and the little shelving unit which has the same plastic backing as the pocket door above.
Unfortunately, the kitchen had been remodeled. The original owners daughter, who walked us through the house, said the kitchen had also been all knotty pine but had been remodeled sometime in the 1980s. Bummer. It still has the awesome copper hood though!
So, even though this was not the house for us it was still cool to go through anyway!
I hope y’all enjoyed the tour.
