  • Retro ‘60s Property That Hasn’t Been Touched In 50 Years Up For Sale (12 photos)

    With its psychedelic floral wallpaper, dark wooden panels and retro patterned carpets, it’s easy to see why this home was crowned ‘House of the Year’ at the Ideal Home Show in 1967.

Whether the new owners decide to bring it up to date or stick with the vintage style remains to be seen.
