January 12, 2014Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Pastel and Pretty in Auburn, ME
By Eartha Kitsch
This week’s home is a pastel dream. It has it all: original kitchen and baths and even a knotty pine basement with built-in bar and vintage linoleum. It’s a multi-level home and the color combos are to die for, let me tell you! From exterior to interior it reminds me of one of those beautiful vintage Marx dollhouses. Thanks to Larry for sending this one in for us!
This home is located at 210 Gamage Avenue in Auburn, Maine. It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and 2,025 square feet. The home was built in 1958 and is offered by Keller Williams. From the listing:
You simply must make an appointment to see this quality built multi-level home located in a lovely area of Auburn. The home offers a front brick facade, covered front entry and walk-in entry to the garage. The spacious front living room displays a beautiful wall of brick fireplace and a large window to the front of the home. The kitchen offers oodles of cabinets and an eating area.
The 2nd level consists of 4 good sized bedrooms and 2 full baths (1 which is located in the master bedroom).They all have beautiful hardwood floors and painted walls. There is also access to the attic space through one of the front bedrooms. As you travel down to the lower level you will find a separate space which would make a great computer area and a separate laundry room.
The basement family room is knotty pine paneled with a “fun” bar area and a walk-out door to the back circled patio area which overlooks the private backyard. There is also a 1/2 bath located in this space. The 2 car garage is a bonus!
Let’s take a look inside!
Do you see a life-sized Marx dollhouse like I do? I swear, I’d buy this house and match the paint colors exactly and just apply new coats to freshen things up. The current color combos are SO perfect. This house is about as fifties as you can get! I can’t decide if I love the kitchen or the bathrooms more. Or wait…maybe it’s the flooring in the basement.
Dish! What do you all think of this pastel and pretty home?
