This house is in Mesta Park, a neighborhood listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its Craftsman homes dating to the early 20th century. It is within walking distance of a park and a stretch of NW 23rd Street with several Vietnamese restaurants; doughnut, ice cream and coffee shops; and Tower Theatre, a 1937 theater that is now a venue for live entertainment and film screenings.

Driving to downtown and the parks along the Oklahoma River takes about 10 minutes. Tulsa is 90 minutes away; Dallas is a three-and-a-half-hour drive.

Price per square foot: $216

Indoors: The entrance to the home is at the end of a long concrete path that cuts across the front lawn and steps up to a wide, covered porch. The front door opens into a foyer with unpainted original woodwork, something of a rarity in Craftsman homes of this era.

Straight ahead is a staircase to the second floor. To the right is a living area with a fireplace, used by the sellers as a dining room. From there, original wood pocket doors open to a den with a bay of windows facing the side of the property. This room is open to an updated kitchen with open shelving and a center island that seats four.

A mudroom and a full bathroom with a walk-in shower are behind the kitchen.

All three bedrooms are on the second floor, off a landing lined with built-in bookshelves. The primary bedroom, at the front of the house, has pocket doors that open to a bonus space that could be used as an office or a nursery. A spacious guest room with another bay window is next door, and a smaller guest room faces the backyard. At the far end of the hall is a bathroom with a soaking tub and a glass-walled shower.

Outdoor space: The fenced backyard is flat, with ample space for a garden or patio. The detached garage holds two cars.

Taxes: $5,172 (estimated)

All of the bedrooms share a bathroom with a combined tub and shower and another stained-glass window.

A side-by-side washer and dryer and an open space used as a home gym are on the basement level.
