Custom-built by Timberline Homes, the fabulous two-story Jenks residence at 224 E. 127th Court was completed in time for the 2009 Parade of Homes.
The property is in the Carlisle at Yorktown neighborhood, which has 44 lots and includes a large pond with fountains. Carlisle is phase one of the Yorktown development, with phase two — Plymouth at Yorktown — to the west.
The owners of this week’s featured home lived near the developing Yorktown neighborhood and were interested in what it would offer. “We love the location,” said the wife. “It is only two miles to Highway 75 and to the Creek Turnpike, which allows you to get around Tulsa quickly. We were able to get in early and purchase one of the premier lots in the initial lot draw.“
The couple worked directly with an architect to design the house based on some plans they liked, taking advantage of the large lot and designing the interior with all the features they desired.
“We love everything about the house. It was designed to entertain both inside and out,” she said. “The kitchen has all the bells and whistles.“
KitchenAid appliances include a built-in 48-inch refrigerator, double ovens, a warming drawer and a commercial-grade gas cooktop with griddle. The cabinets have full-extension pull-out shelves, large drawers for pots and pans, a convenient appliance garage, built-in spice racks, cutting board and cookie sheet storage above the ovens and many more storage options.
“Additionally, all the doors and drawers in the kitchen are soft close, so there are no slamming doors or drawers, and things don’t shift around in the drawers,” the homeowner added.
Upstairs, the home has an impressive game/media room, which includes a full bar embellished with a glass backsplash that looks like brick. The game room has plenty of space for a pool table and other games, and the large media area is perfect for watching sports and movies.
“To tie it all together, the house — indoors and out — is wired for audio, including in-room control pads and remote,” she said.
Outdoor entertaining is easy with a huge wraparound covered porch that includes a built-in grill and fire pit. Not only is there a covered patio for dining furniture but covered space for an outdoor living room as well.
“It is a large house at approximately 4,900 square feet but feels warm and comfortable,” she added. Elegant interior details include hand-scraped hardwoods and designer inlays throughout the main living spaces as well as vaulted ceilings with beams.
The master retreat includes large his and hers closets with built-in dressers and a spa bath with marble top vanities, a Jetta tub and a walk-in shower. In fact, all the bedrooms are spacious with large walk-in closets that have built-in dressers.
The home’s energy saving features include solar board roof decking, Blow-in Blanket System insulation, a tankless water heater with recirculating feature, three heating, ventilation and air conditioning units, a fully insulated garage and a ventless natural gas fireplace with remote.
“The large fenced yard has room for a pool or just a great space to play catch or soccer,” said Alexis Spangler, the Coldwell Banker Select Realtor representing the property. “There also is a neighborhood pool, splash park and walking trails.”
Listed for $535,000, the home will be open 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, contact Spangler at 918-481-8335 or email to email@example.com.
