Here, you can take a tour of my grandfather and grandmother’s house, which was located in Santa Rosa, California — part of Northern California’s Sonoma County — and built around 1971. – NJP
Front of this 1970s house: Small porch and double front doors
The kitchen of this ’70s suburban house in Northern California
So much nostalgia in one photo — from the daisy motif decor to the super seventies mugs on a rack to the avocado green breadbox.
The eat-in kitchen/small dining area
The real dining room (and the living room) was just through that doorway straight ahead on the right.
ALSO SEE: See 100+ short retro window curtains & cafe curtains that were essential ’70s home decor
Fresh veggies from the garden on the kitchen countertop
Family room with a full wall of bookshelves
The living room, looking toward the front door & foyer
Here’s almost the same angle as above, but this photo was taken during its construction.

Where are the copper Jell-o molds hanging on the wall? Lol! Love it!
This is so awesome. This makes me think of my own Grandparents house that was built in 1975. There are dozens and dozens of photos of it. Nobody documents and photographs their brand new homes from start to finish anymore. . My parents didn’t either. I love the nostalgia here. Brings me back wonderful warm memories.
Hi, I am a huge house nut and ‘specially from the 1970’s. I located this house at 2946 Jason Dr in S. R. It looks almost nothing like it did back in 1972 though, sadly. But thankfully it survived all the fires since. I have family that just survived (very thankfully) the LNU fire in Vacaville.
