This Family Home Is A Time Capsule From The 1960s

If you're in the market for a 3-bedroom home in Toronto, and your biggest decorating inspiration is reruns of The Brady Bunch, you're in luck.

Tucked away in the city's Bloor West Village neighborhood, this home only had one owner between 1942 and 2014. During that time the house went through a few renovations, but the last big update was in 1965.

So when the owner moved into a retirement community a few years ago and put her family home on the market, people were shocked to see what the inside of this house looked like.

Looking at these photos it's hard to believe they were taken this decade. The owner did such a great job preserving her home that you could convince someone these are snapshots from the 50s.

The home is full of fantastic little decorating touches, like the glass-topped wrought-iron table in the breakfast nook.

Even the light fixtures have a funky, art-deco charm.

While men might not like the pastel colors and flower-print wallpaper, the wood-paneled basement with a full bar definitely makes up for it.

Notice the card table and folding chairs tucked underneath the staircase.

Sadly, the owner and her family took some of their "most cherished pieces" when they moved, including the wood-topped dining room table and matching chairs.

But the 1950s Moffat stove (which still works just fine) is included.

If you want to buy this home the next time it goes on the market, start saving now. In 2014 the asking price was $699,000.

That may seem a bit steep but let's be honest: this house is one of a kind!
