Pack in the shoulder pads and put down the perm — Savvy + Co. Real Estate has some rad homes in the 1970s and ’80s architectural style you are going to love more than your neon leg warmers.

This one is taken, but we have more!
Savvy + Co. Expert: Heather Claxton
Asking Price: $215,000
Why you’ll spazz out: This groovy home is a great example of the 70’s and 80’s contemporary style, it’s also under contract and another reason to seize the moment if one of these homes catches your eye. Check out the vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, updated bathrooms with new flooring, true oak hardwood floors, sunken den with french doors and open shelving and the flexible living space. This home is full of zen with a beautiful back deck, spacious flat yard with mature trees and urban garden with plenty of room for friends of all shapes, sizes and breeds to run and play. Totally bad to the bone and totally under contract, but Savvy + Co. Real Estate like, totally have more for you to see.
