Why we have a crush on this property

From the street, this 1910 bungalow for sale in Prosser, Washington, looks pretty unassuming—perfectly average, even. But something far louder and brighter awaits on the inside. What you can’t see from a quick glance is that this little white house conceals a psychedelic time capsule.

Step inside to be transported to the 1970s, complete with shag rugs, oversized furniture, and all. The living room is tame enough, even with its gothic pendant lamps, brass accents, and black marbled walls. But it’s the kitchen that takes center stage: bold floral wallpaper in burnt orange and gold, matching burnt orange carpeting, a row of mirrors, and black-and-white cabinets make for a bold combination. The picture window overlooking the Yakima River is the icing on the cake.

Aside from the ultra-groovy kitchen, you’ll want to poke into one of the bedrooms. Decked out in black and purple, the extraordinary space flaunts damask wallpaper, purple velvet light fixtures, a black-tiled ceiling with a chandelier, and purple shag carpet that swirls underfoot.

In terms of psychedelic time machine levels, this bedroom is topped only by the home’s mint-green bathroom. Bright green tiles are juxtaposed with a black floral pattern, a pink tub and toilet, and a leather-padded door. It’s all a far cry from the grass-and-astroturf backyard, where trees and shrubs create a sense of calm.

This home’s retro decor isn’t all it has going for it, either. The property is located in the heart of Washington’s wine country—which is fortunate, considering a glass of cabernet might be just the thing to round out a very special tour.
