This home in Staten Island, NY might look like your typical house from the outsite. But inside, it’s an explosion of soft pinks and retro style. Built in 1970, the property has only had one owner in the past 50 years, who definitely isn’t too shy about what their favorite color is—and has kept the home in immaculate condition. Now, this blush-colored residency has hit the market and it’s a bona fide time capsule.
Located at 820 West Fingerboard Road in the Grasmere neighborhood, the four-bedroom home pays homage to the days of foil wallpaper, floating staircases, exposed brick, and furniture that we’d classify as patio being used in inside. It offers 2,600 square feet of living space and is located near public transportation outlets allowing easy access to Brooklyn and Manhattan. The home is sure to transport you back to much simpler and more groovier times. Shall we take a look?
Welcome to the pink pad, where many things are pink, flamboyance is key, and textures are of the essence.
Need to fix a flyaway? There’s a whole gold flecked mirror tile wall inside the living room.
For a New York home, it sure does have a tropical feel. Anyone else getting major Golden Girls vibes from all of these palm trees?
Looking for a spot to enjoy some cheese fondue? The home offers many seating options. There’s a full family table as well as a dining room for more special occassions.
There are also tables in both kitchens. Spoiler alert: While these rooms may not be pink, they are quite impressive.
While this bathroom is devoid of pink, it’s still pretty grand. Check out the orange toilet and sunken tub, as well as the chandelier.
Getting back to business, all four bedrooms contain some level of pink. Here, this spacious rosey bedroom features a massive antique dresser for clothing.
Meanwhile this bedroom (which is slightly less pink) is equipped with a huge TV, dark wooden colonial furniture, and blue funky foil wallpaper that really nod to the time.
Last but not least — the patio! The idea of a patio was still pretty new at the time, but luckily this home hopped on the trend. There’s even a basketball hoop.
