… and mirrored tiles
This Mt. Washington residence was built in 1963 and retains that period feel. Its original pastel-peach tiled kitchen helps, as does its stone fireplace with a cantilevered hearth. Mirrored tiles appear in more than one room of the house, really driving home the house’s blast-from-the-past theme.
The house’s two full bathrooms are bright but seem to lack the fun, retro pizazz of the rest of the house, and could probably use an update.
The three-bedroom house also has a lovely dining room that affords a good view out into the rear yard, which holds a deck and is bordered by mature trees.
Mt. Washington’s windy, slim streets often leave little room for cars, but this house is set back from the street by way of an ample driveway—a nice perk when friends come to visit.
Last sold in 2007 for $650,000, the house is now listed for $729,000.
