This Groovy Cali Condo is a 1970s Time Capsule, and It’s VERY Green

Somewhere in California, there’s a condo for sale that looks like the equivalent of living inside an avocado. Which is fitting, if you think about how many avocados they eat in the Golden State.

But this condo was clearly decked out during the groovy 70s, and it is… something. I mean, imagine sitting down with an interior decorator in 1974 and just picking out everything in the same color, from the shag carpet throughout, to the cabinets in the bathroom. Even the railing on the floating spiral staircase sports a green hue.

Now, imagine keeping this monochromatic avocado scheme for the next 45 years or so.

Someone in Ramona, California did just that, and this active listing on MLS is the proof. And according to agent Nancy Maranan, “Everything is vintage–even the magazine on the coffee table is 30 years old.”

Bring on the Green

As soon as you walk through the front door, your eyes are assaulted with the grassy shades that continue from floor to ceiling. The green shag carpet even covers the floating spiral stairs, which are accented with the green railing that swirls around.

The condo has both a living room and a den/family room. This one is decidedly less green, which is hard to believe considering just how green it actually is.

The 1970’s Saw a Lot of Carpeted Bathrooms

The green plaid wallpaper continues into the first bathroom, and so does the green carpet. Yep, there’s carpet in the bathroom.

To be fair, from this angle, the condo looks kind of cool, in a retro way. According to the MLS listing, this condo is located on a golf course with views, so you’ll even see plenty of green when you look out the window.

Green as Far as the Eye Can See

The condo is pretty large. MLS lists it at 1,847 sq. ft. That’s 1,847 sq. ft. of monochromatic bliss.

I’m actually very surprised that the kitchen appliances aren’t also green.

The Carpet Matches the Drapes… and the Rest of the Condo

In the master bedroom, the drapes, bedding, and wallpaper match perfectly.

The green floral motif continues into the master bath, where it is accompanied by green towels, and green cabinets topped with green countertops.

The Blue Room

If you’ve made it this far, you’ll notice that this is the only room in the entire condo that introduces a large amount of anything other than lime and avocado hues. I guess the owner decided to take it easy in the guest room!
