House of the Week: $2 million to live like it’s 1960 in Edenbridge-Humber Valley
The Place: A perfectly preserved 1960s home by the architecture firm Gardiner Cowan.
Bragging Rights: The only way you could host a more authentic Mad Men party would be to travel back to the 1960s themselves, but then you’d have to watch it on a tiny television—and, you know, find yourself a flux capacitor.
Big Selling Point: This home feels like a well-kept museum, with authentic 1960s touches like LP-sized cubbies, Douglas Fir beams and even built-in fans, perfect for the era when smoking inside wasn’t a social faux-pas.
Possible Deal Breaker: Convincing the owner to part with the gorgeous mid-century furniture may be hard—especially when it comes to that majestic sailfish.
