March 21, 2013Sweet Vintage 1950s Time Capsule For Sale In Phoenix
By Sara In AZ
Well, I should say “Was for sale”, as this house just sold for $460,000. Yes, you read that right THIS unassuming ranch house sold for $460,000. ugh. I would have been SO all over this house if it would have been in a realistic price range…..you’ll see why it’s SO cool in a minute…..but yeah, this place was WAY out of our range. Unfortunately this house is located in the dreaded Arcadia area of Phoenix, the same area where they wanted to tear down the Frank Lloyd Wright house (but the FLW house was eventually saved thanks to an anonymous benefactor) so sadly this house will more than likely be torn down to build a McMansion.
This house is a 3 bedroom 2 bath house and is 2059 sq feet. It was built in 1958.
This is the front of the house…..I know, you are asking yourself “What is SO great about this house Sara?”………………..I know it looks plain on the outside but just you wait!
The is the formal living room right off the entry.
I adore that built-in bookcase…………that scalloped edging……….awesome!!!!!
Here is the family room area where you can see the gorgeous fireplace and check out the FAB beamed ceilings!
Another view of the family room.
And wait……………….OMG!!! A !!!!!PINK!!!!! kitchen!!! I think part of me just died from the awesomeness of this kitchen. LOVE IT!!!!
And check out that fabulous original light!
I completely adore the desk area off the kitchen and would love for my next house to have a desk area too so that we can keep all the clutter off of the kitchen counters.
That dining table set is amazing…..could it be an Erik Buck set???? And look at that pink stovetop…eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All the cabinets still have the original copper hinges and pulls.
The first bath………all original…….and all aqua. LOVE that floor!
Here is one of the bedrooms, don’t you just love those twin beds!
And the pièce de résistance………………the pink bathroom with the ORIGINAL fish wallpaper! I die!!!!!!!!! I literally die from the awesomeness of this bathroom!
It’s SO perfect isn’t it?!?
I can only hope that the house we eventually buy is as amazing as this time capsule ranch is!
