Take a step back in time before flat screen TVs, WiFi and Ikea.
You won’t find any flat pack at this 1950’s Ipswich house that has just hit the market.
The property looks like it’s been untouched for over 60 years, and the selling agents have chosen to embrace its retro charm.
‘Have a seat in the spacious lounge and imagine stripping back the gracious wallpaper, it won’t be difficult, it’s been happening slowly over the last 67 years anyway,’ the property listing reads.
The bright red 1950’s upholstery remains intact with many other vintage features including cute yellow curtains giving off an American diner theme in the dated property
The kitchen is a real blast from the past and appears untouched in 60 years, something which the estate agent has embraced
A somewhat modest exterior shows no signs of the delights inside, with a neatly kept lawn blending the property in with the other surrounding suburban homes
Yet once inside, the vibrant finishings are a sight to behold and run right throughout the dated property
The bathroom is no exception, with ‘European-style wall tiles still in fashion today’ as the tongue-in-cheek listing really sells the property
The three bedroom, one bathroom home is on at 86 Brisbane Road, East Ipswich is on the market for $329,000- probably a little more than what was paid for it 60 years ago.
‘Peel back the veil- look under the worn carpet that was once the height of fashion- and find dark hardwood flooring that has never felt a woman’s high heel or the splash of a wine glass tipped near the end of a fabulous dinner party with friends,’ the listing continues.
‘Look upwards and see how ceilings used to be crafted before the age of boring cornices and plasterboard panels.
‘Stroll past the stunning bathroom with gorgeous terrazzo flooring and European-style wall tiles still in fashion today.
‘The amazing retro fluoro light fittings will make the plainest man look handsome.’
Stunning images of the property show perfectly intact retro tables and kitchen tops- the type you would search hours for in a second hand store.
A padded leather booth, and cute yellow curtains really tie the 1950’s diner theme together.
The carpet and wallpaper will really make you think you’ve stepped back in time.
The property is open for inspection from noon to 12.30pm on Saturday.
The bedrooms are filled with vintage wooden units that wouldn’t look out of place in a trendy hipster haunt in Melbourne
The property has three bedrooms that all retain their original features, and although the estate agent has expressed a strong level of optimism with the property, potential buyers may not share the same enthusiasm
The Ipswich property is on the market for $329,000 and with spacious grounds surrounding the bungalow, potential suitors will surely be able to see beyond the dated interior
The property does have a number of strong selling points including this spacious covered patio area, perfect for escaping the dated designs inside
