Junior Ocieleta Club of Claremore 29th annual Christmas Home Tour scheduled



This house is warm and inviting and will get you in the spirit for the holiday season.  Be sure to visit the JO website after the tour for links to many of the projects adorning the Snyder home.
• Nate & Lisa Saylor, 14828 East Glenwood Drive
As you wind along the tree-lined streets of the Glenwood Addition, you come across a big surprise.  Perched on a beautiful tree lot, right in the middle of a row of traditional homes, you find a little piece of Santa Fe.  
Nate and Lisa Saylor spent a couple of years in New Mexico before returning to their native Oklahoma roots.  They so loved the Southwestern architecture, they decided to bring a little of it with them.  They designed and built their family home of 4,200 ft_ with the idea of creating a homestead for their four daughters.  
The stucco home features hand-stripped beams, hand-cut corbels and authentic carved vigas, inside and out.  Upon entering their carved front door, you are struck by the continued uniqueness of this home.  A plaster lit niche, faux finish and hand-painted wall art greet you in the foyer.  The 28-foot vaulted ceiling and unusual windows welcome you to the great room and the 400 ft_ kitchen says “come in and stay awhile.”  The kitchen features a commercial stove, island vegetable sink and a baking center.  The dining room, as well as many other rooms, is highlighted with custom-made, hand-thrown pottery lights and sconces.  Custom draperies and florals are featured throughout the house.  The master suite mimics a grand spa retreat with its sunk-in bedroom, French doors to outside, whirlpool tub with beamed surround and stone and tile walk-in shower.  The unusual style is carried upstairs to the children’s bedrooms and bathrooms as well as two sitting areas, a hobby room and a well-used upstairs laundry.
