March 6, 2014Sweet Little 1960s Cottage/Colonial Time Capsule House Up For Sale
By Sara In AZ
Well, I should say this house WAS up for sale. This was one Mike and I went through a while back and I did like the house…..but the layout was just all wrong for us…..plus I REALLY want a ranch! I thought y’all might like to see this house anyways – it has some great original features!
Don’t you all think this house looks like it came right off the set of ‘Leave It To Beaver’ or something!? SO adorable!
This is the entry, I am not sure if that wallpaper is original.
I think this was the original entry light?
These were the ‘formal’ living and dining areas right off the entry.
Here is the FAB kitchen!
I seriously loved that scalloped trim…and the cabinets looked like they were brand spanking new!
The eat-in kitchen area….love those beams!
Here is the family room…..it’s SO cozy looking!
This was the master bath.
As a bonus the family selling the house showed off this copy of The American Home magazine from July 1960. The story goes that the original family that built this house were quite smitten with the cottage/colonial look….. they took one look at the house in this magazine, decided it was their dream home and ordered the plans straight away! SO cool!!!
I think they did a pretty fabulous job of replicating the house!
I’d say it was a pretty sweet house!
