Inside amazing 1970s time-warp house left untouched for decades

This three-bedroom detached house in Bucknall, Stoke-on-Trent, might look like any other on first glance – but wait ’til you see inside.

The home, on sale for £400,000, has been left untouched for decades, meaning the interiors are a little… dated.

Or, to put it bluntly, the inside of the house is straight out of the 1970s.

You’ll either love it or hate it, depending on your preferences regarding carpets.

Photos show an incredible plaid carpet throughout the kitchen, green carpets in the living area, and floral-patterned floors leading up to the staircase.

If colourful floors aren’t enough for you, have no fear – there’s plenty of colour on the walls, too, which pair well with the classic brown wood ceilings.



The snooker room is pretty special, with pub-esque carpet and dated wallpaper.

And the bathroom is pure 70s: carpeted, wallpapered, and with matching brown bathtub, toilet, and sink.

The house, on Gaskell Road, has been attracting some interest since it was listed on Purple Bricks.

Some have loved the nostalgia of the decor, while others have commented that the asking price might be a bit steep considering how much renovation work may be required.


Personally, we’d vote for keeping it as is. Why destroy such a glorious tribute to the past?

The unique property is being advertised for those with prestigious cars and labelled as the perfect place for ‘having a great time with the boys playing snooker’.

It features a spacious driveway and a large garden including an unusual spiral staircase attached to a roof terrace leading to the rear of the property.


The Purple Bricks advert reads: ‘We are delighted to bring to the market this unique family home which has been carefully designed and built to create the ultimate home for the family who want everything.

‘If you have classic/prestigious cars, then this is the house for you. Ideal if you’d like a place to display your prize possessions.

‘While your cars are safely enjoying their new home, you could be benefiting from the three generous bedrooms, large reception rooms or having a great time with the boys playing snooker on the full sized table in the games room.

‘This home gives you stunning landscaped front and rear gardens and a roof terrace, perfect for entertaining and enjoying quality time together.

‘This home is a must see to truly see its full potential.’
