Time Capsules: Forest Glen Home with Checkered Past and Present Seeks $599K

October 09, 2014


On the outside, this 3,175 square foot suburban home is a very nice old vintage brick house, however once you step foot inside, it’s like an immediate time warp to the ’80s. Checkered finishes are literally everywhere you look. The kitchen and dining room are just one continuous checker pattern. How about the master bathroom? Yup. Purple checkered tile. It kind of looks like a home Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Neilsen would have designed. The home certainly has a lot of potential, but an interior rehab could be quite costly. Clearly, it has had a checkered past and present – but what about the future? With three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a single car garage, this home can be had for $599,900.
