This $600K house in Barrie is like a time warp to the 1970s

A home for sale in Barrie might make you think you have just taken a time machine back to the 1970s.

It may not be an ultra-modern home, a castle in Hamilton, a restored school house or church, but this property has unique features at a much lower price.

The two-storey home at 128 Letitia Street in Barrie is listed for just under $600,000.

The home at 128 Letitia Street in Barrie.

According to the listing, from Matthew Philip Kindou of Sutton Group Incentive Realty, the home has had only one owner and by the looks of it, that owner had a certain taste that could be called dated but it could also be considered nostalgic.

The stairs are carpeted and the metal and wood railings look like a relic from the past.

While the listing calls for investors and renovators, it would be a shame to lose this look into the past.

The living room is more muted than the rest of the house.

Stepping inside, the carpet and staircase at the entrance give a hint of how the home has nearly been untouched by time.

The carpet is bright and colourful but the wall colour is more neutral.

But the dining room and living room in the front of the home look like they have seen some upgrades, at least with wall colours.

The kitchen and living room take you back in time with wood panelling.

The kitchen has a green dishwasher and wood cabinets that seem to come from the 1970s or 80s.

Green appliances were a trend in the 1970s.

The brick wall with fireplace and wood panelling in the living room are paired with a vibrant carpet.

The wallpaper in this bedroom looks like it is from the 1970s.

The home comes with four bedrooms. One of the larger rooms has a very busy wallpaper design.

Pink is the theme for this bathroom.

The bathrooms, of which there are three in total, also come with dated cabinets. One has a pink theme, while another is decked out in powder blue.

Downstairs is where the home gets really interesting.

The downstairs family room comes with wood panelling and rust-coloured wallpaper. 

Here you will find a family room complete with wood paneling, rust-coloured wallpaper and pink carpeting. The television doesn't come with the place but it fits in well with this room.

The wet bar has a mirror shelving unit on the wall.

The best feature is the wet bar with vintage chairs and a mirror shelving unit.

The home has a huge backyard, which you would never get in Toronto for this price.

The entrance to the home.

While it may look dated to some, the home looks to be in excellent shape. The carpets and furnishings barely look worn.

There is tons of space in this backyard.

If you are looking for something vintage, and don't mind a commute from Barrie, this could be a fun choice.
