Inside the £170k three-bedroom house that hasn't been touched for 50 years

·2 min read
This Erdington house might look like an ordinary three-bed terrace from the outside - but it has a surprising secret hidden within.

Frozen in time, the property appears to have been left totally untouched since the 1970s - a time when Starsky and Hutch dominated TV screens and disco fever ruled the airwaves.

Now house buyers are being offered the chance to step back in time by snapping up the nostalgic property which has remained exactly as it was five decades ago.

Because behind the door, there is an interior that hasn’t been touched for 50 years.

House buyers are being offered the chance to step back in time by snapping up the nostalgic property, which has remained exactly as it was five decades ago.

On the outside, it looks no different from neighbouring houses, but things are very different inside.

The time capsule house, on Hillaries Road, also has pink ceilings and floral curtains.

The average price of a terraced house in Birmingham last year was £198,000, so this one is very competitively priced at £170,000.
