Another day, another glorious "time capsule" home to tell you about. This time, it's in Australia. This two-bedroom Victorian was owned and inhabited by multiple generations of a Melbourne family; hitting the market only after final owner and WWII veteran Eric Worsley died recently at the age of 102. Come see more, it's fascinating.

Before Mr. Worsley spent his century-long life living here, his mother Mary—who also lived to be well over 100—owned this home. As you can see, there are elements from many eras, as rather than redecorating, the family seems to have just added new technology (that TV!) and styles as they became available. It makes for quite a mish-mash, but think about all the interesting, relics one could uncover here. That wallpaper alone is pretty priceless.

Perhaps you noticed there's no bathroom? That's because the only loo is in a separate structure in the backyard, added much later than anything in the original house.

Mr. Worsley left the house to his longtime caretaker Maria. Here's hoping she finds a buyer willing to give this historic home the careful and respectful upgrade it needs to restore it to its former glory.
