Distinctive Tulsa Hilltop Home

This afternoon we dropped by an open house at one of Tulsa's most distinctive modern houses. Perched atop Reservoir Hill just north of downtown, this glass and steel abode is easily visible from the Tisdale Parkway. And the dramatic lighting of the roof makes the view at night nothing short of inspirational.

Designed by Tulsa architect Patrick Fox this home was built in 1987. A steel framework supports the two-story home and an aerial crossing that connects to the parking area. Redwood siding softens the hard edge for a ski resort feel that blends nicely with the steep topography. Large windows accentuate an open floorplan that spills out on to large wide decks along the back of the home. This is where you'll find that dramatic view of Tulsa's skyline.

Below the elevated walkway is a secluded courtyard. The main bedrooms open on to this private deck area. Follow the perimeter around and you'll be in the stepped backyard.

The house is just over 3200 square feet with 3 bedrooms and two baths. The home is listed with McGraw Realtors for $575,000. MLS# 1027245

The "Reservoir Hill" area is truly one of the most architecturally interesting areas in Tulsa, yet most residents don't even know it exists. Every time I drive through that area, I can almost imagine my self touring different parts of Europe. I hope more people rediscover this remarkable area.
