Edit: The real house has sold, so I must remove the link. Rest assured, the interior is quite similar to the real thing, and you'll probably still have an idea of why I really had to re-create this one.

In my day job I had the great fortune to visit an immaculate (actually mid-1960s) 1970s time capsule house. It was all original and everything was in flawless condition. I just had to recreate it and share it here. While the exterior is not too similar (I wanted to go for a more stylish and period-correct appearance outside) the shape of the house, interior floor plans, and styling are very similar to the real thing. If the real estate listing was live, I'd love to have shared it here because it's definitely a sight worth beholding. The real house was also quite large, nearly 2,000 square feet - just on the main floor!

The first thing you'll see when entering is the grand entryway featuring a large open to above/below space. I think it invites you to explore the place. Upstairs, the house features a large living room overtop the garage which is a couple steps up from the rest of the main floor. It's got a fireplace with brick flooring and backing, as well as an overhanging balcony that wraps around the left side of the house. You've also got a dining room by the enclosed kitchen, a laundry/mudroom attached to the kitchen, one five piece bathroom, two secondary bedrooms and a master bedroom.

The basement features a foyer with a fountain (a feature the real house actually has!), a den, furnace room, a four piece bathroom, bar, flexible room with built-in shelving, and an empty room for whatever you may want. The basement is also where the attached garage is accessed, in addition to the walk-out linked to the backyard.
