This $1.1M Utica Home Is ’70s Time Warp Complete With Retro Grotto
The 1970s called, and they want you back.
Imagine stepping through your front door and being instantly transported back to that iconic era of far-out fashion and ornate decor symbolizing status. Some homes turn nostalgia into reality by bringing back the essence of the '70s right into your living space.
Currently on the market in Utica, Michigan is a home that will have you slipping into your bell-bottoms, and channeling your inner disco diva in pure retro elegant style. At almost 10,000 square feet, this place is already a standout property in the neighborhood. Although pretty humble on the outside, what lies inside is a whole other story.
Yes, there have been a few updates throughout, but mostly the 6-bedroom and 9-bedroom house is a time capsule for the 70s from the extravagant chandeliers, bathrooms, and wallpaper. The large great room boasts a wet bar area that has sure to have seen a few "shakin', not stirred" parties. Even the master suite offers a glimpse into the days when a regal bathroom with one-of-a-kind bathtubs signified fine living.,
There are a few aspects of this time-warp home that are pretty cool, such as the second-floor living room, complete with a fireplace, but the lower level is where the action is or was. There you'll find a second kitchen and a spacious entertainment room, complete with a full bar made for entertaining, but that's not the real highlight.
You're going to love the extra accent that was so "in vogue" back when the home was built. Let's just say it's an element of a little Playboy Mansion famous grotto vibe just waiting to enjoy. Yes, there is a unique indoor/ outdoor pool that will allow you to enjoy aquatic fun all year long. The stone wall and glass block are all just part of the time travel experience the entire home offers.
So, how much to grab yourself this little bit of 70's nostalgia? The home is priced at $1,100,000 and is being offered by Dan A. Gutfreund of Signature Sotheby's International Realty Bham (248-644-7000), and Janine E Grillo (586-531-5038), of KW Domain.
