Behind its relatively normal facade, this three-bedroom terraced house hides a big secret.

The property in Erdington, Birmingham, is up for sale for £170,000, and a potential buyer could have the time of their life if they go through with the purchase.

Or the time of someone else’s life.

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

It comes complete with busy floral wallpaper from the 1970s and patterned carpets that haven’t been in fashion for quite some time.

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.

The vintage property, which was put on the market this week, comes with a back garden, upstairs bathroom, dining room, kitchen, living room and three bedrooms.

It is a short distance from a nearby train station and a number of schools.

Estate agent Dixons said: “This three bedroom mid-terraced property in need of modernisation is close to local amenities and public transport links.

“The accommodation on offer includes an entrance hallway, through lounge, dining room, kitchen, first floor bathroom, three bedrooms and a rear garden.”
