It's no secret we are big fans of weird homes in the suburbs (like this and this). This 1,794 square-foot three-bedroom, located in uncool Metairie, was built in 1961 and has a fun retro vibe. Described by the listing agent as "post-modern funk with a hint of yacht," the kitchen's characterized by wavy details and stained concrete counters and flooring. Pastel bathrooms and a back patio contribute to the retro vibe. There also is a 312 square-foot guest house. The asking price for this mod Metairie pad? $299,000.
