‘Time capsule’ home up for sale in Missouri. See why it transports you back decades

A house that could render even the idea of a time machine moot has landed on the Lee’s Summit, Missouri, real estate market for a crisp $375,000.


And why? Because of its amazing throwback to the 1970s, the photos show.

“Rare opportunity! Immaculate and incredibly spacious, custom, one owner, all brick, 1.5 story reverse ranch home in a quiet Lee’s Summit neighborhood,” the listing on says.

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home looks as if it has stepped of the set of a period piece television show with its shag carpet, wood-paneled walls, funky wallpaper, grandma’s dining room set, and china cabinets.

Other features of the 3,527-square-foot residence include:

  • High ceilings

  • Eat-in kitchen

  • Mud room

  • Huge primary suite

  • Patio room

  • Oversized garage

  • Storage

The residence was featured on Zillow Gone Wild and people went gaga over it.
