So much going on with this home. The foot shot is just the
trip tip of the iceberg.
The listing agent does a pretty good job of describing this place:
Wildly creative spaces are throughout this masterpiece of a home built in 2013. “Bright textiles, eclectic styles mixed with tastefully neutral tones” describes this house to a tee. A mix of industrial, modern and classic – all under one roof that makes the most refreshing elegant and comfortable living. There is not another one like it!
Okay well I’m not sure about that “tastefully neutral tones” part… I mean, I guess the walls themselves are relatively “neutral.” But everything on and inside the walls…
Torsos for the win.
The really crazy thing about this place is that it’s not in Los Angeles, or San Francisco, or even Las Vegas…
It’s in Oklahoma City.
Even the outside is multi-color:
Just $2.8 million and all 8,122 square feet can be yours.
In other news, today is the three-year anniversary of the launch of Looney Listing!
My how time flies!
Happy birthday LL!
As for this listing:
A) The windows are kinda cool, but I wouldn’t want to clean them.
B) I feel like I’m looking at a giant youth room outfitted with donated furniture.
@Marty E.: WooHoo! Happy Birthaversary, Looney Listing!!
“Don’t go trippin’…” Ironic choice of words, since a lot of the decor looks like someone really did go trippin’, trippin on acid, maybe.
For the most part, the exterior is nice. It looks more like mid-century modern than 2013, but a nicely done retro look. However, the front doors are just wrong. They belong on a mansard-roofed French provincial house, not a modern place of any sort.
The interior spaces are OK, too, even kind of interesting. It’s the surface treatments movable objects that are, well, let’s be kind and say “strange.” (Where did they come up with the giant hairdryer bonnet to double as a hanging lamp?) Luckily, switching out decor is much easier and less costly than changing the spaces themselves if they didn’t work. I wonder why someone would go to the trouble of so much decorating (such as it is) and then sell only 2 years down the road?
The one weirdness exception shown is the kitchen. It’s well done, though I’d never put a dining table in the middle of the work space traffic pattern. Sharp knives and hot-from-the-oven dishes don’t mix well with over-populated, tight spaces. There are a few furniture choices that show promise – the table and chairs in Pic 5, the red sofa in Pic 11, and the out-of-place kitchen dining table itself, so long as it’s repositioned (but they can keep the dining chairs).
As for it being in OKC, there are weird and/or creative people everywhere. Maybe not in as high (no pun intended) a concentration as in some spots (I’m talkin’ about you, Austin), but they’re there, trust me. — A Kansas Correspondent
Happy birthday, Looney Listing!
I wouldn’t even be able to tour that house, let alone live in it. I have no depth perception & wouldn’t be able to use either of those staircases!
@MsWildhack: I’m not sure if my depth perceptions is really good or really awful. All I know is open stairs like that, where there are no risers and you can see between the treads while you’re going up, have always freaked me out. I keep feeling like I’m going to slip and fall between the treads. Plus the main one here has only one stringer, the support feature running up the middle of the stairs’ underside. Most staircases have two. So all the more space for some unknown force to reach out from and grab my ankle. AAAGH!!!
Not conducive to climbing assuredly, eh?
Me too! Add to that, the havoc that movement on the edges of my field of vision when ascending/descending open stairs — well, I just don’t even try anymore. Terrifying doesn’t even begin to describe it.
@MsWildhack: You know, I was just as terrified of escalators when I was a kid, but I got over that. Not open stairs. Nope. Nope, nope, nope…
