Walking through this Florence Park full brick bungalow built in 1929 will stir your appreciation for the detailed and quality craftsmanship of that time.

Between the formal dining room and kitchen is the butler’s pantry and breakfast nook. Beautiful built-in cabinetry provides shelving for storage and glass-front cabinets for display; also a counter for food preparation or buffet.
The kitchen includes a dishwasher, stainless steel sink and cabinet for microwave placement. New ceramic tile flooring is throughout the kitchen, breakfast nook and inside utility.
The inside utility is off the kitchen and includes cabinetry for storage of detergents and cleaning supplies. Should you want to move the utilities to the partial basement, there are hook-ups there as well.

Also difficult to find in Florence Park, this home has two FULL baths – one Pullman bath with a vanity shared by the back two bedrooms.
Throughout the first floor, hardwoods have been refinished by Gil DeLozier and there’s fresh paint in each room – some new light fixtures blend well with vintage fixtures.
Most every inch of the attic space has been transformed into a huge area to be used as a gameroom, office, studio, 4th bedroom or storage – it includes a closet and several attic storage entries.
The back yard is level with several perennials and trees, ready for your personal landscaping touch. The detached 2-car garage in back has a new garage door.

Florence Park is one of the nicer, yet still affordable 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 side-walks 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 Florence Place and Florence Avenue. 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.
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.
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. We watch each other’s homes and know when something or someone is out of place in the neighborhood. It’s a great corner of midtown to call home!
