The current owners told that they had a passion for the 1960s.

They worked hard to retain the original character of the home during renovations, even installing period-correct furniture.

“By trade I’m a hairdresser and I always wanted to do up a shop or salon, it was just a dream and it all fell into place,” owner Jane Farrell told

“Friends of my husband have said it’s like a museum.”

Ms Farrell and husband Mark purchased the property in 2013 for $320,000.

The current price guide calls for offers of between $670,000 and $735,000.
