A Big One
Usually on my Open House Sundays I show historic homes and quaint cottages.
But today I thought I'd pick from one of the most upscale neighborhoods of Oklahoma City.
That neighborhood is Gaillardia on the far northwest side of OKC.
This is where you build if you want a REALLY big house.
This is where you build if you want to impress.
This neighborhood is relatively new...started I believe in the early 2000's.
It is not where I would live ever.
Even if I had all the money in the world, I wouldn't.
But I thought it might be fun to look at one of the mansions on the market today.
built in 2008
I do like the red tile roof.
lots of ornate ironwork
That is quite a view out on to the golf course.
I believe this home is staged and not lived in at the moment.
Really great furniture would make a huge difference in how this house looks.
This furniture looks straight out of a furniture showroom.
None of it right for the house.
the fireplaces are quite something
I had to look several times to be sure this was the kitchen.
Yes, it's open to an eating and sitting area.
The high ceiling and light fixtures dwarf the kitchen below.
Doesn't it look as if it was a church in a previous life?
I do kind of like that huge hood over the stove minus the tile mural.
That is quite an island too.
of course a wine cellar is required
Another pretty view.
complete with outdoor kitchen
This is kind of amazing...an infinity pool that looks out on to the lake of the golf course.
This housing edition was built on what used to be prime farmland.
Quite the view...I'd like it better if there were cows grazing on this land instead of golfers.
Would you live in this house if you could?
Know what? If given the choice between this house or the one I'm in.
I'd choose my little cottage every time.
