Here is another absolutely charming time capsule house brought to us by Pennsylvania real estate agent Jeffrey Hogue. See the previous one — with the beauty shop basement and totally fantastic bar — here. I sure do love it when I meet real estate agents who are great marketers … who see the value in these homes … who get great photos … and then send me the photos stat! to feature here on the blog. But guess what? I didn’t get these photos up fast enough. Jeffrey sent them to me on Monday … here I am loading the story for Friday … and there is already a pending offer! That is a well-deserved sale, Jeffrey. Above: Jeffrey tells me the gorgeous curved sofa sectional was custom-made for the original owner. My favorite photo, though, is next: A living room with a wallpaper mural, I love wallpaper murals. I neeeed a wallpaper mural. 12 photos in all –>
It is rare to find a one owner home that was built in 1956 but here it is. There have been upgrades to the home but it is relatively the way it was back in the day. The kitchen and appliances have been upgraded. The mechanicals, roof , flooring and fixtures have also been replaced. The large living room has an open beam cathedral ceiling with a fireplace, Phillipine mahogany walls & large glass doors from front to rear. It is also open to the dining area. The eat-in kitchen is quaint and has a door leading to a large covered, screened-in patio with a ceiling fan. The yard is well landscaped with the theme being privacy. Back inside is a master bedroom suite with a full bath that has a tile shower. The other bedrooms are reasonably sized and have good closet space. The family room is located adjacent to the study. Entering from the garage is a laundry/mud room. The home has radiant heated floors throughout and central air. If you are a fan of retro styled homes you will enjoy this!
