Have you ever heard of the Bexley Bubble?
Most of my family lives in Bexley and they joke about it a lot. But in all seriousness, I think I’ve found the epicenter of said bubble. This incredible house, located at 251 Stanbery Ave. is clearly generating some sort of warp in the time-space continuum.
The house was built in 1958 and has had the same owner for forty years. It’s been perfectly preserved, like a little slice of days gone by. From exciting flooring to a dining room fit for an old-school sit com, this time capsule could be your new home.
It boasts 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and 3,837 square feet, and it’s currently listed by David Powers, Street Sotheby’s International Realty for $819,900. Let’s take a closer look.
There’s no better place to start than the foyer. Have you ever seen such a grand staircase with such lime green carpet? I bet you haven’t, and I unironically love it.
Don’t worry, folks. That green carpet isn’t going anywhere. You’ll find it throughout the entire house, including in the living room.
And in the dining room.
The kitchen has some iconic parquet flooring, some epic floral wallpaper, and of course, lime green counters to complement the carpet.
If you were thinking, “The only thing this house is missing is wood paneling”, think again. Because they’ve got it in the breakfast nook and it’s fabulous.
Another type of wood paneling is on display in the den, as well as more beautiful parquet floors and a midcentury modern fireplace.
This room may have a lot of wood going on, but that doesn’t mean it’s dark. The gorgeous floor-to-ceiling doors and windows let a ton of light in.
Upstairs, the theme of green continues in the master suite.
Overall, it’s the kind of place where you can imagine listening to old records while sipping on an Old Fashioned.
Even the bathrooms are retro. I don’t know who’s going to buy this house, but I do know that they better keep this level of charm.
