This home’s exterior is Clinker brick, and I just have to give you a little background on that material. Clinker bricks are more dense, heavier, and more irregular than standard bricks. Clinkers are water-resistant and durable, but have higher thermal conductivity than more porous red bricks and were salvaged by architects who found them to be usable, distinctive, and charming. Clinker bricks were widely admired by adherents of the Arts and Crafts movement. So, now you know!

As with most homes in Florence Park, the landscaping is lush and pristine. A beautiful wrought-iron railing leads to the front porch.

 

Arched front door

 

The entrance to the home is quite handsome with an arched wooden door including a mail slot, door knocker and leaded glass window to view who is knocking at your door. Other special touches include a vintage-like address plate and porch light. English ivy flanks the front door.

Not found in many homes in Florence Park, there is a separate arched entry with a coat closet! Beyond that is the very spacious living room accented by original crown molding, baseboards and beautiful hardwood flooring. An art-deco type gas fireplace is the focal point of this room.

 

Formal living room

 

 

 

 

An arched opening separates the living room from the formal dining room, which is also accented by original crown molding, baseboards and beautiful hardwood flooring. A lovely chandelier hangs above the table. A glass-paned door separates the hallway leading to the bathrooms and three bedrooms. Another glass-paned door separates the dining room from the kitchen, and two windows to the north bring in much sunlight.

The covered patio is a perfect spot to grill or relax and watch the birds. The back yard is filled with beautiful mature trees.

The detached 2-car garage has a new garage door and is adjacent to a 8 x 16.5 foot storage shed - handy for housing your mower and other yard equipment.

Now that you’ve seen this great home, let me tell you a bit about the area and neighborhood!

Florence Park is one of the nicer historic midtown subdivisions in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Within Florence Park are some of the most beautiful bungalows – architectural wonders, sidewalks, parks and manicured lawns.

Florence Park has always been a special and revered neighborhood within our midtown Tulsa community. The architecture of homes built in the 1920s through mid 1930s is varied and unique – ranging from English style bungalows to adobes to traditional brick. No two homes look the same and you’ll find welcoming sidewalks and beautiful old trees.

Within Florence Park are two actual parks. Pratt Park is on the 1600 block of Florence Avenue, and that’s where the Florence Park Neighborhood Association typically has its seasonal get-togethers. There are grills, picnic tables, drinking fountains and play equipment for the kiddos.

The second park, actually named “Florence Park” borders 21st Street between Gary Avenue and Florence Place. It has a water fountain for the kids to enjoy during the hot summer, jungle gym equipment, picnic tables and a tennis court.

Florence Park has an active Neighborhood Association with voluntary dues among residents. Officers and committees meet regularly and general meetings are held on a quarterly basis. Topics discussed include neighborhood safety, park maintenance, tree restoration and historical preservation. A web site for residents is provided to disseminate information.

Florence Park boundaries are from the Broken Arrow expressway (west) to Harvard (east); Cherry Street (or 15th Street, north) to 21st Street (south). Just five blocks south of the University of Tulsa, Florence Park is minutes away from Utica Square Shopping Centre and the hub of popular restaurants on Cherry Street.  It’s a great little corner of midtown Tulsa!

Florence Park is truly a tight-knit community within our midtown Tulsa community. We visit as we garden and manicure our lawns and as we walk our dogs on the sidewalks. We watch each others’ homes and know when something or someone is out of place in the neighborhood.
