‘Time capsule’ home frozen in the 1970s could be yours for just £170k

This house might look like an ordinary three-bed terrace from the outside – but it has a surprising secret hidden within.

Frozen in time, the property in Erdington, Birmingham appears to have been left totally untouched since the 1970s – a time when Starsky and Hutch dominated TV screens and disco fever ruled the airwaves.

Now, Birmingham Live reports that buyers are being offered the chance to step back in time by snapping up the nostalgic property which has remained exactly as it was five decades ago.

On the outside, it looks no different from neighbouring houses, but inside potential buyers are being transported back 50 years.

The one-of-a-kind 'time capsule' house, on Hillaries Road, comes complete with headache-inducing wallpaper, patterned carpets, pink ceilings and floral curtains.

But despite its dated décor and need for improvements, the terraced house has been put up for sale for a healthy £170,000.

Last year, the average price of a terraced house in Birmingham was £198,000.

The home is in need of a total refurbishment but has the potential to be a good-sized family home. Those who like a bit of nostalgia might even want to leave parts as it is.

The dated property, which was put on the market just this week, comes with a back garden, upstairs bathroom, dining room, kitchen, living room and three bedrooms.

The house is a short distance from Gravelly Hill train station and Brookvale Park. Nearby schools include Slade Primary and Spring Hill High School.

Estate agent Dixons said: "This three bedroom mid-terraced property in need of modernisation is close to local amenities and public transport links.

"The accommodation on offer includes an entrance hallway, through lounge, dining room, kitchen, first-floor bathroom, three bedrooms and a rear garden."
