I've been kicking myself for NOT taking pix of this for nearly 20 years now.

The really sad part is some normie probably bought the house because the upper level was "all up to date" and probably demolished
the glorious basement bar and rumpus room.

It's now probably a theater room and an extra bedroom with a 'walk-out' window (to keep up with housing code).

In all of our house viewing before we bought, this basement was the best.

There was another house that was MCM time-capsule perfection, but it was in a mega-expensive part of town and it needed EVERYTHING to be
either fixed or replaced. The property tax alone was nearly $15k a year, and that was back in 2002. It's probably $22-24k a year at this point.

Also the yard was like .17 of an acre and you were staring from your bedroom into the neighbor's kitchen, and the next neighbor down was getting the same
treatment from this houses kitchen.

Fantastic space, awful situation. :(
