Many, many fun hours have been spent on this porch that spans the entire width of the home. Present are original hooks used for sleeping hammocks - used many years ago. This home was built in 1916.

Front door opens to the formal living to the right and formal dining to the left. The fireplace gas valve was capped off, but could easily be re-opened. High ceilings, massive crown molding and baseboards are indicative of the era built.

The kitchen has many original features including the marble counters and ceiling-height cabinets.

The den was probably remodeled in the 1950s and boasts beautiful mahogany paneling and doors. And the beautiful windows overlooking the back yard. Towards the back of the den are the stairs leading to the 2nd story - and a separate room for the washer and dryer.

This Craftsman bungalow built in 1916 is located in the Maple Ridge neighborhood of midtown Tulsa. One of the largest historic areas, Maple Ridge Historic District encompasses many residential subdivisions beginning with the Southside Addition, platted in 1907.

Maple Ridge was the first Tulsa neighborhood to be listed in the Oklahoma Landmarks Inventory. It was placed on the National Register on April 6, 1983.

Maple Ridge boundaries are:
North: Inner Dispersal Loop (IDL)
East: Peoria Avenue
South: Hazel Boulevard
West: Midland Valley Railroad right of way

Located just east of the SoBo (South Boston) business district which includes restaurants, dry cleaners, a convenience store, organic grocery, salons and more. Also just a few blocks from Lee Elementary and less than half a mile to Tulsa River Parks.

A stone's throw to the Midland Valley Trail and Veteran's Park and south of downtown Tulsa, you couldn't ask for a better location. To the east less than a mile is Woodward Park, Swan Lake, Cherry Street and Utica Square Shopping Center.

Midtown Tulsa IS the best little corner of Tulsa. We walk to our farmer's markets and jog and cycle on our many trails. We have the highest concentration of locally-owned businesses and public parks. We sit on our covered porches sipping tea or wine and visit with our neighbors walking their dogs down our sidewalks.

This looks like a beautiful listing. I am sure that with all your marketing and great price it will be gone soon.

Those homes in a generally hot area do benefit from the porch.  When I grew up, central air (and even central heat) wasn't always present.  So, the porch provided a cooling effect for the parts of the home shaded.

Good luck.

Lisa - thank you!  I think I am writing an offer tonight!

Lenn Harley - I spent a few hours there one July afternoon - temps over 100-degrees. We were very comfortable on the porch and throughout the first floor. Thankfully there are wonderful old trees that help keep the home and porch cool!
