November 21, 2013Super Sweet 1950s Time Capsule House For Sale In Phoenix
By Sara In AZ
I recently came across this really adorable time capsule ranch for sale here in Phoenix. It is in a very popular area close to central Phoenix…so I fear this house may be renovated to the hilt after it is sold. Mike and I considered this house, but ultimately it was both out of our price range and a bit farther away from our target area that we’d like to stay in. Also, we REALLY need those 4 bedrooms and this one only has three.
This house is already under contract, but I thought y’all would enjoy a look-see anyways.
This house was built in 1958 and has 1,972 sq. feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It is for sale for $484,900, and is located at 1928 E. Rose Lane in Phoenix Arizona.
From the listing description:
First time on market in 50+ years. Almost half acre (0.46) level irrigated lot in ideal Central Phoenix/Biltmore location. The 1950s buff will move right in; those in need of space will expand; the most ambitious will scrape and start anew. With recent sales up to $1.0M, this neighborhood supports each option. The home on this great lot is the treasure under the big ”W”. A pristine example of mid-century style w/ push button light controls, immaculate 1950s bath tile (hall bath – pink, master -green) and many other 50’s touches. A unique property: Only 3% of North Central Phoenix lots are larger than 20,000sf, and less than a quarter of those enjoy the benefits of flood irrigation. Equidistant from Sprouts, Trader Joes and Whole Foods. No HOA!
I sure hope whoever buys this house does not “scrape and start anew” that would just be sad. On with the tour!
A lovely ranch house!
I love all the stone work on the outside.
The backyard…so awesomely HUGE!
The formal living/dining area.
The family room – adore those built-ins and that fireplace!
This house still has the original Honeywell ‘Tap Light’ wall switches….SO cool!
One of the bedrooms.
I am K-RAZY for this ceiling light!!! *swoon*
This kitchen has to be one of the most adorable and well kept I have ever seen…..AND it looks like it still retains the original Skylark/Boomerang yellow laminate! While I am not crazy about the newer tile flooring in many parts of the house, that could easily be remedied.
Wheeeeeee….the kitchen even has a cool vintage built-in blender and………………………….
………a FAB built-in clock/radio/intercom! Neat-O!
Here is the master bath…………..
…………..and here is the master bath shower. Love the green tile!
And here is the hall bath….yay!!! for pink!
And here is the lovely pink tile bath.
What do you all think about this house? Could you see yourselves living here? I’d totally go for it if it had just one more bedroom…..or a basement…..and the price was a bit lower!
