Purchase a Home in Oklahoma
Salt Box-design home patterned after Richardson Home of 1735
Built in 1988 in Owasso, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa
Featured in a 1991 10-page photo and story in Country Home magazine, December 1991, “Faithful in Every Season,” pages 110-120, and also placed in the hard-back annual book.
In gated community with a 9- to 10-acre park and a 9- to 10-acre lake - very strict covenants and restrictions. Development has concrete streets—88 lots (all of which are over one acre)—heavily wooded area.
As authentic as possible with 1 x 10 pine floors (square nails), thumb latches, Katy bars on exterior doors.
Home exterior is redwood lap siding, Arkansas river rock, aluminum shake shingles by Manor House (insulated with styrofoam).
Windows are 12 over 12 panes, wood frames, and float glass (not smooth—old method of fabrication). Bull’s-eye panes above front door.
Four fireplaces, one a walk-in size, made from an old design. All with separate flues. Fake post/beam pieces on inside to simulate that type of structure. Dual air conditioners and gas furnaces.
2700-square-foot living space with storage above the Arkansas river rock 3-car garage. 170 trees in front yard. Storage building added 7 years ago - size 24' x 20', duplicating salt box shape, siding, Arkansas River rock, shingles, windows (2), bull’s-eye glass with 48" door. Attic floored for storage. Heated, air conditioned, and insulated.
Home is filled with antiques, which are from ‘the period’ and are available for purchase.
