Lots of people loved the ‘time capsule’ property – with one fan joking: “I’d buy it for the kitchen! Maybe remove the carpet. The bathroom though. Joan Collins meets Dellboy!”

Another commented: “It’s kind of brilliant isn’t?

“The kitchen reminds me of a range of Sindy furniture, & the bathroom is crying out for some Badedas bubbles.”

A third joked: “The 60s called – they want their Formica and orange walls back.”

A fourth added: “A time capsule! Love the bathroom.”

Outside, the house looks like a normal property – but photos of the kitchen really give an insight into the unusual decoration.

Orange Formica cabinets and wooden panelling in the kitchen make it look like it’s from a 1970s catalogue, with a chequered carpet finishing it off.

There’s a huge amount of space – including a breakfast bar.

Useful while pubs are closed…

The reception room has been transformed into a bar – complete with hooks for hanging glasses and space for lots of booze.

Meanwhile, the utility room is decorated with patterned wallpaper and matching orange flooring.

The main bedrooms upstairs includes another patterned carpet, and built-in wardrobes, with a huge window.

Meanwhile, the bathroom features a red corner bath, along with a matching toilet and sink, and another patterned carpet.

People were divided over the house on Twitter, with one man tweeting: “Ghastly! Looks like a composite house with rooms from different eras, designers and styles.
