Swamplot Sponsor: This 1956 Glenbrook Valley Time Capsule

Today, Swamplot’s sponsor is the 5-bedroom home at 8122 Colgate St. in Glenbrook Valley. Thanks for supporting Swamplot!

At 4,211 sq. ft., this 1956 home on the corner of Colgate and De Leon St. ranks as one of the Glenbrook Valley Historic District’s largest homes — and possibly one of its best-preserved ones too. The 5-bedroom, 3-and-a-half-bath property last went on the market more than 50 years ago, and when you browse through the extensive photo tour in the new listing, you’ll believe it. Inside, it’s not hard to imagine how the home might have appeared back then, because . . . well, just look through the photos!

The entry view at top only hints at the time-capsule-like scenes laid out inside the living room (to the left) with its wall moldings and street-facing picture window and family room (to the right) with its original flagstone flooring, pecky cypress beams, and ash paneling. Similar set pieces are to be found in the main house’s dining room, kitchen, and ground-floor master bedroom. Also found with the home: a distinct private living quarters (also on the ground floor) with its own kitchen and separate entrance. The lot measures 11,700 sq. ft.

Did we mention you can see more photos of the home on the property website? Or arrange for a tour if you’d like to see it in person. This property is offered for sale by Robert Searcy of Robert Searcy Properties.
