Time Warp

This house is for sale across the street from Curry and Melissa... it boarders the city cemetery and the woman who lived in the house died in the house about 4 weeks ago. The current asking price for this house it 369,000 (outrageously high). We walked into this house and walked into another era. Here are some pictures that we took.


There were several of these beauties throughout the house

Um... yes this is red shag carpet... no its not throughout the house... every room has its own color!

This is an original padded toilet seat... this one is extra fancy because of the detail work. Curry jumped out at me from around the corner and scared me half to death... I seriously was just considering what room the old lady died in when he did it... not funny...

Here is the parlor... this carpet looked like it was never stepped on with shoes and you can only imagine what it looked like with plastic covered furniture. This room also sports just a hint of wood paneling... they just couldn't have a house in the 70's without just a little paneling.

So when they went to pick out appliances they forked over extra to upgrade to avocado green. Well worth every penny!

Curry estimated that to bring this place up to date it would run around 250 thousand dollars but the ghost of the woman that lived here comes free!
