Classic Design With a Modern Twist
This sunny Saratoga Springs house blends a classic and modern elements using custom designs and distinctive touches all throughout the space.
The asymmetrical exterior design of this home in Saratoga Springs adds a unique look while still appealing to the surrounding homes in a historic neighborhood. Construction of the house was a bit tricky for the builders, due to its close vicinity to the Oklahoma Training Track. Between April 1 and October 31, a noise ordinance prevented construction work from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., adding some challenges to the project.
The house features prefinished cedar shingles with a final solid stain upon completion. The exterior millwork utilized a mix of PVC and composite for longevity and lower overall maintenance. The roof is a blend of asphalt fiberglass-reinforced shingles with standing-seam metal accents and copper half-round gutters.
On the interior, the millwork consists of custom-milled paint-grade poplar profiles. The hardwood flooring is 6-in. select white oak. The kitchen and bath vanities are both from Signature Custom Cabinets and the site-built mudroom features built-in cabinets and millwork crafted by Teakwood Builders.
The basement family room is a rough-sawn pine finished to replicate a reclaimed gray barn wood with custom barn-style sliding doors. Nelson Reeds Lighting Designer selected and designed all the lighting fixtures, and the interior finish designs are by Elizabeth Tanny Design.
