Time-warp house on sale for £170k lets you step back in time to 1970s with eye-watering patterned carpets and wallpaper


THIS home might look like your average three-bed terrace from the outside – but it has a surprising secret hidden within.

Frozen in time, the property in Birmingham appears to have been left totally untouched since the 1970s – complete with pattern-clashing wallpaper and carpets.

Now house buyers are being offered the chance to step back in time to an era when Starsky and Hutch dominated TV screens and disco fever ruled the airwaves – by snapping up this nostalgic property which has remained exactly as it was five decades ago.

On the outside it looks no different from neighbouring houses, but
inside potential buyers are being transported back 50 years.

The one-of-a-kind “time capsule” house, on Hillaries Road, Erdington, comes complete with headache-inducing wallpaper, patterned carpets, pink ceilings and floral curtains.

But despite its dated décor and need for improvements, the terraced
house has been put up for sale for a healthy £170,000, reprots BirminghamLive.

Last year, the average price of a terraced house in Birmingham was £198,000.

The home is in need of a total refurbishment, but has potential to be
a good-sized family home.

The dated property, which was put on the market just this week, comes
with a back garden, upstairs bathroom, dining room, kitchen, living
room and three bedrooms.

The house is a short distance from Gravelly Hill train station and
Brookvale Park. Nearby schools include Slade Primary and Spring Hill
High School.

Estate agents Dixons said: “This three bedroom mid terraced property
in need of modernisation is close to local amenities and public
transport links.

“The accommodation on offer includes an entrance hallway, through
lounge, dining room, kitchen, first floor bathroom, three bedrooms and
a rear garden.”
