This Old Lady’s Home Looks Ordinary…But What She Did Inside? UNBELIEVABLE!

A 96-year-old Toronto resident is selling her two-story home located in the West Toronto neighborhood of Bloor West Village. From the outside, the house doesn’t look like anything out-of-the-ordinary, and even her neighbors had no idea the surprise she kept inside…

Decorated in perfect style circa 1965, the home is intricately and gorgeously decorated in the 1950s and ’60s era — from floor to ceiling. We’re talking metallic wallpaper, modern baroque prints, colorful carpeting, and neo-ornate splendor and much, much more.

The homeowner is a 96-year-old seamstress who has always been passionate interior design, but was never able to make it her profession. Despite her age, she and her family have lovingly maintained the home’s classic beauty and eccentricities for 72 years. The interior remains in absolute pristine condition, and is currently on the market! How much would you love to call this place home?!

So take a tour of the incredible home below, and please SHARE this amazing journey with your friends on Facebook!

No retro home would be complete without a fabulous, spacious basement. It keeps that vintage look, but also has a geniune playroom feel.

No one on the street ever talked about the home, or knew what it looked like inside. But now everyone is well aware of incredible design, and its 96-year-old decorator and keeper. I don’t think this place will stay on the market for long, but I hope whoever owns it next will keep its 1960s look and feel intact!
