The striking Cape Cod-style facade alone is eye-catching, but walking inside this 1977-built Torrens Park house is like stepping into a time warp.

The interior of the two-storey home at 30 Barretts Rd has remained the same as the day it was built.

Think floral wallpaper, exposed brick, blue and green bathrooms, a red kitchen, a spiral staircase, timber and cork ceilings and textured carpet.

Selling agent Penny Riggs, of Klemich Real Estate, says the one-owner home has remained virtually untouched in nearly 50 years.

“Most people would have changed the kitchen or renovated a bathroom but here they haven’t,” she says.

“It’s been a family home. It’s in reasonable condition but I’d imagine whoever buys it will embrace the features and bring it to modern standards.”

The interior certainly gets people talking.

“The people that grew up in the seventies love it because it all feels very familiar,” Ms Riggs says.

“It’s been mainly families with young teenagers showing interest and they (the teenagers) get very excited by the upstairs play room, imagining half their class fitting in there, and the spiral staircase.”

Home with the best of both words a real art-starter

Is this Adelaide’s coolest rumpus room?

And while the interior is a step back in time, the spacious floorplan is still functional for modern-day living and features six bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple living areas, including a 13.4m x 9.4m entertainment room upstairs.

The home also has a double garage with a mechanic’s pit, a workshop with plumbing, an attic, a north-facing patio, and a pergola.

Offers on the property, which is being marketed with a price guide of $750,000 to $820,000, close Tuesday, February 25, at noon.
