      Lancaster, PA, PA

      Beautiful solid-looking home from the peak (in my opinion) of quality residential construction in the USA. I would keep almost all the decor. Bradford is home of Zippo lighters and semi-famous in Pennsylvania for consistently being the coldest spot in the state in winter weather reports.

    Fantastic! While I might not choose to decorate a house from scratch in this style, I certainly wouldn’t change a thing about this house were I so lucky as to buy it.

    Great looking home with nice details that this home has in spades. It looks well taken care of. Just bring my toothbrush!

    Fantastic, quality, SOLID house: but for my nickel, the fabulous, vintage interiors steal the show. Wow – what a look! These were rooms well chosen and executed when they were done; and I don’t blame them a bit for never bothering to change them. Mostly not my look; but I certainly appreciate. I would WITHOUT QUESTION, personally retain the blue service pantry turned bar – as is. That blue leather detail is soooo frickin rad set off by the peak white Formica. OMG I frickin love that. That ceiling border lighting is SO cool: though I’d go from fluorescent to incandescent so it could be dimable.
    Reminds me in spirit of another great, vintage service pantry / bar from years ago.

    I want to see more, more, MORE!

    That turquoise butler’s pantry is dynamite. Gotta love the yellow wall phone too!

  6. My normal decorating style is very minimalist, letting the architecture shine. But I would definitely preserve the interiors on this house if it were mine! That kitchen is awesome! Wallpaper and all!
