This house is astounding! Not only is it a pristinely preserved affordable 1970’s time capsule currently listed on the market for $160,000, it has the most extensive collection of colorful shag carpet – quite possibly in the world!
House Crazy Sarah is completely blown away but the sea of colorful shag carpets. Not to mention the funky lines and vintage fixtures in the house.
She would TOTALLY live here! And she most certainly would NOT rip out those fabulous carpets!
Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, this 1975 beauty has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 2,476 square feet.
Here’s what it looks like from the exterior:
This distinctive home was designed by architect James Sherbondy to be his family’s personal residence.
Here’s how the listing agent describes the home:
“You’re traveling through another dimension, into a home of design, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous home whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Sherbondy Zone.”
Imagine entertaining in this groovy house?
House Crazy Sarah loves all the natural light coming in the large windows.
Spiral stairs lead up to the “red carpet level”…
Look at the wonderfully dated bathroom – complete with red shag rug!
Let’s float down these fun stairs to see the bottom level.
What color carpet is down here?
But wait, there’s more!
Wine red shag!
Rainbow shag! Fun!
House Crazy Sarah’s head is spinning in this 70’s time warp.
Some yahoo will probably come along and rip out all the cool carpet and period fixtures.
But at least we will always have these listing photos of a cool house that is just a little off the beat.
