Imagine not Changing Your Home for ahh 72 years?



The impeccably maintained ‘time capsule’ home straight out of the 1950s that has been seamstress’s home for last 72 years and the three-bedroom home in Toronto was listed for $699,000 in 2014. I could not find out if it was sold, but I imagine it was snapped up quickly and would probably go for double that now.

The owner first moved at the age of 24, when Canada was in the grip of World War II
The home underwent a major overhaul in 1965, with most of its colours, themes and furnishings inherently 1950’s and 1960’s.


Dining Room


The kitchen even features a classic, 1950s Moffat stove!




Wrought iron chairs and stands there now extremely rare and considered an instant classic.
