Don’t forget to look up while touring the striking model home in The Boulevard, a new gated community northwest of 51st Street and 177th East Avenue (Lynn Lane). Located at 17610 E. 49th St., the home’s grand interior reveals elegant features at every turn, but compelling elements are overhead as well.
“We wanted this home to make a statement and have a wow factor from the moment you walk in the door,” said Builder Ralph Sandmeyer with Southern Homes. The expansive entryway showcases a 20-foot ceiling with three groin vaults. A dazzling metallic finish enhances the beautiful architecture.
The grand entry flows into the great room, which is just as breathtaking. Another 20-foot ceiling displays crisscross beams with a chandelier at the center. Custom ivory cabinetry flanks a unique cast-stone fireplace, which has delightful gothic details. A bank of windows provides plenty of natural light and a wonderful view of the backyard and oversized covered patio, which includes a dining area, a wood-burning fireplace and pre-wiring for a flat panel TV.
At the back of the great room is the gourmet kitchen, which has matching cabinetry with rope detailing and soft-close drawers and doors. Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances add to the kitchens charm.
A wet bar, adjacent to the kitchen and great room, connects to a travertine and wrought iron wine cellar with a wine refrigerator and beverage center. For easy entertaining a bar window opens to the entry near the great room.
“One of the things we wanted to do is keep an old-world feel in this home because a lot of people enjoy the warmth of that, but we also made it more updated with clean lines,” said Gunta Sandmeyer, the Realtor with Boulevard Realty Group who represents the properties.
The home combines elaborate details with comfortable features, making it is as welcoming for entertaining as it is for family living.
The dining room, located just off the kitchen, includes yet another groin vault ceiling and windows overlooking the patio. Tucked beyond it is a guest suite as well as a media room and powder bath.
“The downstairs media room is a unique feature to this house,” Gunta said. Equipped with surround sound, the media room is pre-wired for all theater equipment.
In addition to central vac with a foot sweep in the kitchen, the home has a FamilySAFE storm shelter next to the kitchen pantry. Beyond that is the utility room, which has granite countertops, a sink and custom cabinetry. Next to it is a mudroom with lockers near a second entrance to the house.
Also on the main level is the master suite, which features pale blue walls and lots of windows in the bedroom. The master bath is spacious and elegant with a groin vault ceiling, travertine flooring and shower, a jetted tub and separate dressing area. The large closet has custom shelving and seasonal storage.
Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, each with a private bath. One bedroom has a turret ceiling and a playroom. Nearby is a large game room with a wet bar.
The beautiful two-story residence has a Tulsa address, but it’s in the Broken Arrow school district.
The Boulevard is close to restaurants, shopping venues and the new St. John Broken Arrow hospital. Houses in this development range from the $350,000s to $800,000s.
Listed for $654,900, the home will be open 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, contact Sandmeyer at 918-504-7256 or email to gunta@The BoulevardTulsa.com.
