Vintage Style

I dragged Mamoo through four properties today. The first one was pretty bad. The second one was better but the location sucked. The third one was really nice, but unfortunately was pending. But oh, the fourth one. The fourth one was wonderful. A pristine, 1968 vintage home that's sitting on a golf course lot. It starts at the front door...

Solid wood, blue side panels and a mail slot.

Original light in the foyer

The view of the golf course out the living room windows, not a great shot I know

The family room with bay window and built in bookshelves. There's a fireplace in a full stone wall behind me.

The pink counter tops in the kitchen. Note the original curtains in the window.

More pink counter top.

From the other end. The counter was at least fifteen feet long.

The base station of the whole house intercom system. I didn't try it out, but I wanted to!

The view of the looooong counter when standing by the patio doors in the living room.

The master bathroom is blue.

The vanity in the jack-and-jill bath is a really pretty light green.

The tub surround in the jack-and-jill bath is the same light green.

The doorknobs throughout the house.

The floor to ceiling, whole wall of cabinets in the laundry room.

All this vintage glory, almost 2800 square feet, sitting on a third of an acre golf course lot can be had for $425,000. Currently, this home looks like it was built yesterday. I didn't see a single cracked tile or discolored anything. The wood paneling is gorgeous and looks like they buffed it regularly. My only hope is that this home gets purchased by someone who really appreciates the vintage style and would love to keep it's beautiful look. It would make me very sad to see this house purchased by someone who wants to "neutralize" the vintage in order to resell it to the masses. Let's hope that doesn't happen.
