In the 1950s, Lafayette Parker "Pick" Temple's children's show was all the rage in the Washington, D.C. Metro area. Temple would play his guitar, sing, and wear a trademark cowboy suit while joined by animals who would play along. In 1952, the local celebrity built this five-bedroom, five-bathroom single-family home, and now it's on the market for $979,000.
The Washington Post reported that despite the many renovations and updates throughout the years, the listing still has traces of Temple's influence. The train tiles around the fireplace in the kitchen, the image of a train in the linoleum flooring in the basement, and the train wallpaper in one of the bathrooms all call back to his love for trains.
With the renovations came dimmable LED lighting and modern bathrooms with spa accents. In the kitchen, there are granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a 10-foot-long custom island. Take a look at what the home has to offer with the above photo gallery or see what made Temple so famous with the below video.
