1970s San Antonio house is frozen in time

By Spencer Peterson, Curbed

Did that "American Hustle" vibe stick with you after the credits rolled? Crave the low-chroma, heavy-on-the-laminate look of the 1970s, all muted tones and wood paneling with the occasional hint of avocado green or harvest gold? Well then, consider this abode in San Antonio, Texas, a time capsule preserved for your viewing pleasure. Built in 1972 and impeccably maintained, the place hardly looks a minute older, with a fireplace flanked by triptychs of narrow mirrors, a sitting room with a wall of hand-painted grasscloth and a hanging rain lamp, even a vintage intercom with a mechanical pencil sharpener (!) installed next to it. The kitchen alone warrants this three-bedroom, 2,922-square-foot home a closer look, just to behold such a washed-out expanse of bleached wood, with burnt-orange countertops that can best be described as groovy to the nth degree. On the whole, the place may not be as flashy as some retro party pads, but it's a steal at $335K, especially considering it avoids the pitfall of the eye-achingly intense wall treatments so prevalent in that decade.
