If you adore all things vintage, this Los Angeles home is a dream. It was built in 1957, and not much has changed since — except, we assume, for the $2,995,000 price tag.

This three-bedroom, three-bathroom, former party house is on the market for the first time. Apparently, was the-go to hang-out in its day and has seen approximately 250,000 visitors, between all of the parties and events thrown. The same family has owned it since 1960, but it was originally built as a “field and test laboratory house” for House & Patio and Architectural Products magazines.

Upon entering the 3,000-square-foot house, the first thing you'll notice is the flooring: one part statement green carpeting and another part chevron, which continue into the living room that was originally decorated and furnished by Barker Bros when the home was built. Some of the decor remains intact as well, and the bedrooms and bathrooms still boast the original wallpaper.

The pool, designed in the shape of California, can be seen from the wrap-around balcony, wooden deck, or the outdoor kitchen.
