It was in the dining room of this house that a young Tony Manero told his father: “Would ya just watch the hair. Ya know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it.”

“While much of this home has been restored and renovated, the main floor still remains as intact” as when “Saturday Night Fever,” the 1977 John Travolta hit about an Italian-American dancer from Brooklyn, N.Y., was filmed, according to the listing. The exterior has been completely redone to a Tudor-style finish.
