This Will Make You Nostalgic

The strangest things can bring back the most powerful memories. Sometimes, it’s the smell of cinnamon or peppermint or cookies baking. Sometimes, it’s a song from your childhood. And sometimes, it’s the tile in one of your new listing’s bathrooms.

The lower-level full bath in our new listing on Burtonwood Drive takes you back in time. The house was built in 1956, and this bathroom is representative of the décor trends of the era in which it was built. As people flocked to the suburbs with more income than the decade before, there was nothing more emblematic and illustrative of the American dream than moving into their suburban home and making it their own.

The original owner did just that with this bathroom: when asked what color tile she wanted, she couldn’t decide, so she told the builders to use them all. The result? This masterpiece of a bathroom that has ALL OF the color has held up unbelievably well and is still immaculate in 2018.

7114 Burtonwood Drive just went active this week. It features three bedrooms, two and a half baths, convenient one-level living plus a waterproofed full basement with a huge rec room, expansive storage, a work room, and a cedar closet, combined living and dining rooms, a family room off of the eat-in kitchen, a back porch overlooking the treed and fully fenced backyard, and a level, 0.37-acre lot in Marlan Heights.

We also love the mint in the attached master bath!
