    Spectacular! Of course the carpets would go, and I’d update the flooring in the kitchen to coordinate better, but WOW! That staircase hallway wallpaper is Technicolor extravaganza galore. :^)

    This is one of the most legit time capsules I’ve ever seen, and I wouldn’t even change the carpet if it was in good enough condition because it’s part of the original look. Just sooooooooooo cool!

    The mint original condition of this time capsule is truly shocking. It is almost as if no one has ever lived there. I have never seen one so large and so intact. A joy to look at.

    Thanks’ so much for sharing this one with us StevenF! Steven is always finding these really great inter-war and early post war, super solid, quality, u.m.c., houses with many if not all original, and quality vintage features in tact. This one, with its AMAZING, top-shelf, Vitrolite and Crane baths, superb St. Charles enameled steel kitchen, AND uber +++ boom boom basement still perfectly preserved and ready to PARTY, is NO slacker. Heheheh. It’s not often at all that you see those Vitrolite room installations with the tiles on the ceilings as well. That kitchen is super MOLTO RAD. Love and keep, or hate and change the decor otherwise: it would be a mortal SIN to in the least little bit alter the kitchen and baths. HGTV stay away! 😉

      I second that; HGTV could only destroy – not improve or enhance – this amazingly intact gem. It needs to be loved, not tortured.

        What bothers me about some of the HGTV hosts is how they make fun of the previous or currents owners decorating choices.

    The vitrolite bathrooms are spectacular. This is probably the only quasi-Colonial house I have ever lusted after… I do love a good time capsule!

    This house is only about 25 minutes away from me! I have to watch to see if they schedule an open house! My mouth dropped when I saw that kitchen and then the bath. If I owned this house, there would be dance parties every weekend! First song: Love Shack by the B52s!!!

    This is SO like the home I grew up in. I would expect my parents to come into the room any minute. Takes me waaaay back. The colored floor tile looks like what my mother called “rubber tile”. It wasn’t noisy to walk on and was actually more resilient than thin, hard tiles. Loved to see this beauty. Enjoy this time capsule while you can.

    My tenants can have the first and second floors. I’ll be down cellar enjoying the knotty pine.

    My grandmother’s house had the inlaid linoleum “carpet’ and the knotty pine paneling- and vitrolite bathrooms. We all loved spending time in her charming little “doll house”. That said- I’m sure some folks here would’ve been really upset about the changes from whatever the place had looked like before (I think it was a circa 1900 carriage house). Good to keep perspective about the relativity of “good” renovation!

      That is a built-in banquette and I agree it is fantastic. Appears to be original and not a rip, tear, or stain including the formica-topped table.

    So adorable! It seems like a very reasonable price for such a large home with so many amenities. I hope the new owner will keep it intact unlike most of the HGTV programs where they take down walls and change everything.

    It looks like every surface is original as well as many of the furnishings, lamps, etc. It’s almost like everything was covered in plastic until these photos were taken. Amazing. My family would have this place scratched and dented in six months lol.

    How is this house possible? The only explanation I can think of is that this is not a time capsule but is instead a painstakingly made re-creation. I would be very interested to hear what the owners would say, and I’m sad this isn’t an “owner shared” listing.

    Everything is so pristine. It’s all perfect, down to the ashtray on the table in the boom boom room.

    Amazing house! The T on the shower door is for the Tito family, for whom the house was built and remains in the family. The family was responsible for Latrobe’s largest and most famous industry as the creators and longtime owners of Rolling Rock Beer, produced at their Latrobe Brewing Co. The brand was sold in the 1980’s and production left town in 2006. I imagine there are old party photos in the basement rec room with little green bottles here and there.

      Thanks’ Jim. The death of Rolling Rock in Latrobe is as sad as the probable fate of this great house. It’s a damn shame.
