Looks like a hobbit that won the lottery and decided to stay in Oklahoma and build a bigger Hobbit hole.

Almost a million dollars?  You should get half of Oklahoma for that.

I bet it was pretty cool before somebody epoxied random rocks all over it like an 8 year old girl's barbi dream house.

I feel that way about most fireplaces now.  It's all crappy facing made out of Lee Press On Rocks.

Step 1: Oklahoma

There are no steps 2 & 3.

$332 per square foot to live in Tulsa?  Sorry, I'll just take a newly built McMansion for less than half of that if I'm settling there.

I like holes.
 
2022-08-05 1:23:35 PM  
Definitely not my taste or style. I don't really like anything about the place except for the pool.
 
2022-08-05 2:04:45 PM  
Sold twice in the last 6 years? Did gay people own it and then realize they were in Oklahoma?
 
2022-08-05 2:06:11 PM  
Do want but not in Oklahoma.
 
2022-08-05 2:06:41 PM  
But you'd have to live in Tulsa.
Even worse, you'd have to live in Oklahoma.

do you think that the previous owners were into rock climbing/bouldering?
 
2022-08-05 2:09:29 PM  
For $925k I do not want to see neighbors.
 
2022-08-05 2:09:46 PM  
That's...actually quite amazing for a <1m price tag...

Might have been better if they were arranged like a climbing wall.  But now looks like it was built by someone with rocks in their head.

And sorry, OK no to Oklahoma.

I am so farking sick of mid century design. I hated it in the design books my mom had from college and I hate it now.

Which member of Flaming Lips lived there?
 
2022-08-05 2:18:20 PM  
1. Weird design all around, with weird rocks on some of the walls, very cheap cabinetry, strange colors, etc.
2. Pools are a pain in the ass to deal with, and almost nobody really uses a pool
3. Massively overpriced for Oklahoma, for what seems like a mediocre 3 bedroom house
3a. Sold 6 years ago for less than half the price
4. It's in Oklahoma - not even OKC where stuff is, but Tulsa one of the most Republican cities

Conclusion: fark no.

"That looks like a boarding house for 6 year old pimps"

Somaticasual: That's...actually quite amazing for a <1m price tag...


Amazingly good or amazingly bad?
Because it's amazingly not good.
It was $440k six years ago, which itself is a little overpriced.
You can get a massive normal house in Tulsa with 5bed/6bath for less than this weird place.
Or just a normal 3 bedroom house for 150-400k.
 
2022-08-05 2:23:29 PM  
I'll bet that was cool as heck when it was built.
Still has a great retro vibe; you have to go with that.
Probably had all the tile repaired and replaced.
I'd want to have the roof checked out, there are a lot of angles and joints to leak.
For the right person. You would definitely have fun shopping for mid-century modern stuff to fill it.

Amazing in the sense that you don't tend to get anything that architecturally interesting in the price bracket...
 
2022-08-05 2:26:15 PM  
I would take out the rocks, repaint the interior and replace the blue toilets. Then I would furnish it it with mid century modern. Of course, I would need to then move the house to civilization.
 
2022-08-05 2:26:50 PM  
honestly, its weird but well-done weird.  i would own it and not change a thing.  Has far more character than your typical 1 million dollar home.
 
2022-08-05 2:28:05 PM  
I can see what you see in it subby. That house kinda rocks.
 
2022-08-05 2:32:15 PM  
It's the Venture Bros compound.

It's not bad. But not in Oklahoma for a million bucks.
 
2022-08-05 2:32:18 PM  
Does it snow in Tulsa, Oklahoma? Yes, Tulsa Oklahoma gets snow. Tulsa is located in the northeastern part of Oklahoma - which is right, smack-dab in the middle of the U.S. This means that Tulsa gets all the different kinds of weather - snow, ice, tornadoes, heat, rain, wind, and everything in between.Jul 13, 2021

I suppose so, if you find it interesting enough to buy.
Because you're right that there are very few houses like this - for a reason.
But again, you missed out because even 1 year ago you could have been the one to buy it for only $700k.
These people must not like it that much, since they are flipping it for a $300k profit.
But beauty is in the eye and everyone has their own opinion. My opinion is that it's ass.

Yeah but either way you're still in Oklahoma

That was my bet.

It'd be a fun place to rent because of that. Not a great look though.

I lived there.
Whether it snows or not, it gets very cold in the winter.
It is also very windy. So what you might not consider "that cold" in the northern states, feels much colder with the constant wind chill.
It's windy all the time.
 
2022-08-05 2:34:48 PM  
Good luck keeping the upper reaches of each room dusted. You'll need a boom lift to get to some of those nooks and crannies.

I actually thought it was a climbing wall at first. But, sadly, no.
 
2022-08-05 2:35:33 PM  
I like it , but would take down those rocks and the cow skull , but it's out of my price range and there is no way I would move to tornado alley even if I could afford it.
 
2022-08-05 2:36:20 PM  
"Jesus Christ.  If I lived in that place, I'd be climbing the walls!"

That was my assumption as well. "Okay, which "famous" boulderer is selling?"
 
2022-08-05 2:39:07 PM  
Live in OK? Where they take away right over everyone not a well-off white male Oklahoman? Hell, no.

I agree. I love mid-century modern, but that living room was a disaster. Also, yep...no Oklahoma for me. I'll take my heat, humidity, and hurricanes hear in Orlando any day.
