This custom built home sits on 10 acres about 10 minutes from town. Your private drive winds down to the landscaped yard with mature trees and shrubs in a natural setting. The home has 2600 sq. ft. of living area with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.
This home's 1986 addition and 1999 remodel (kitchen, utility room, north bathroom, and den) were designed and built by Ron Walker (architect and owner, Ron Walker Construction), custom home builder in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Walker's exceptional design concepts and construction quality are evident throughout the home.
An airlock entry opens to the cathedral ceiling living room. A covered deck to the East encourages evening entertaining or watching the sunrise. The dining area with built-in cabinets is right inside so meals may be served “hot off the grill.”
Overlooking the living room is a loft for an office/study with enough privacy for guest accommodations. Built-in adjustable book shelves offer space for the library of your dreams.
The L-shaped kitchen features a custom-designed curved island and bar with 4 barstools.
