“Slip on your smoking jacket, turn on the Sinatra and pour yourself a martini… you’re home!” declares the listing for Dallas’ “Smith House”, a mid-century modern home in Dallas, which has hit the market asking for $665,000. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

According to Curbed, the Gordon Nichols-designed house and its neighbors were featured in the 1954 Parade of Homes, a National Association of Home Builders event that aimed to showcase the latest trends in building tech and design. Its looks as thought it hasn’t been touched since.

The 2,240 square foot, four-bedroom home comes with an open-plan living area, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, a central brick fireplace, original kitchen cabinetry, vintage pink appliances and Formica counters, pink and teal bathrooms, a pool, and an awful lot of novelty value.

Unfortunately though, none of the home’s flawless and fitting art or furniture will be included in the sale.
