This cute little single-family home for sale in Somerville has been in the same family for more than 50 years—and it shows. While its listing notes the place is “in need of some updating,” we’re inclined to disagree.

The yellow cottage’s unassuming exterior conceals some exceedingly charming retro vibes on the interior. The wood paneling in the living room is in excellent shape, not to mention that pristine, decades-old scalloped trim. Captain’s chairs in the dining room, though not included in the sale, heighten the early ’70s vibes, and the linoleum floors in the kitchen are as vintage as they come.

A true delightfully dated home is not complete without carpeting or wallpaper and thankfully, this house checks all the boxes. One of the home’s three bedrooms has both wallpaper and carpeting, so keep your eyes peeled for the floral wallpaper and mustard carpet combo.

Peek inside this cottage from yesteryear below, and see the listing here.
