Ready for some original vintage tile goodness?
I spent the weekend helping a friend with an Estate Sale at this house.
This home was built in 1936. It had the same owner from 1953 to the present.
Which is why it has all it's original tile inside.
Which is just the best. All this house needs is some paint and some love.
This home is for sale currently for $150,000.
I took these photos during the sale...so there are lots of things scattered about but you get
the idea of how great it is.
I love these cabinets so much. This is the first home I have seen in my neighborhood or anywhere
in this city with original subway tile. Usually, you see 4x4.
Comes complete with this great vintage stove. Love that.
I wish my house had it's original cabinets.
I like the original wall faucet.
This tile is pristine. Not a crack anywhere.
Next, the master bath is also full of all the original tile. Don't you adore that sweet little built in vanity?
See the soap dishes in the tile? So many times these have been broken through the years.
Here they are as perfect as the day they were set. Original medicine cabinet too.
The sink has been replaced.
If I bought this house...I'd immediately start looking for either a vintage sink
or a new one that looks from the era.
Of course the wallpaper needs to go.
But that's all this bath needs in my opinion.
I wish I could pluck this bathroom out of this house and put it in mine.

This home is a two story or actually...a three story.
You go up a half flight of stairs to the first bedroom and bath and then up another flight
to two other bedrooms.
This phone area is at the second floor stair landing.
I love those scallops in the woodwork.
On the top floor across from the large bedrooms is this green bath.
Again...that wallpaper needs to go but other than that...it's as cute as can be.
All the towel bars and trim intact.
Not a broken tile anywhere.
Complete with hexagon floor and working gas heater.
The marks in the floor tile are clues that this is not the original sink.
The original sink had legs.

I hope whoever buys this house appreciates all it's original details and enhances them rather
