People Are Going Crazy Over This Untouched Home from the 1960s

Bright colors, shag carpet, and patterns galore.
Comments

Back in the 1960s, homes were filled with bright colors, shag carpet, and patterns galore. That's a stark difference from today's popular neutrals, which is why you might think a home featuring the boldness of the '60s wouldn't interest today's buyers. But if people's response to this time capsule home in Springfield, New Jersey is any indication, that's far from true.

Built in 1963, the home was one of the most popular real estate listings on the Internet last week and got several offers before an open house even took place. According to the listing agent, Lucas Wolf, many people who did get a peek in person said it was the coolest home they've even been inside. Which is a surprise, since this four bedroom and two and a half bath split-level home is relatively tame from the outside (with the exception of the pink garage doors).

But as soon as you walk inside you'll find an entryway that'll make you feel like you walked through a machine that took you back 50 years. Everything from the walls to the front door to the stairs is covered in avocado green. This color is even carried over to the living room and dining room, but with additional touches of pale pink and navy.

Every single bedroom boasts a totally different, but equally vibrant, color palette. And the master has a round bed, which we doubt you could even find at a furniture store today.

Even the furnishings are a blast from the past. The den is nothing if not eccentric and this black and gold dressing room gives us some serious Old Hollywood vibes.

Since the home was well-maintained, whoever snatches up this $499,999 abode will have the option of keeping the retro decor or giving it a modern update. But our fingers are crossed that the new homeowners appreciate the '60s decor as much as we do.
