This house was built in 1956, but was never occupied until 2010 when he decided to move in. The reason it was vacant for so long is still a mystery. But the homeowner said that when he moved in, all of the appliances that used to be state of the art, were still in their brand new, original condition. They even had the original owner’s manuals taped to the sides.
