The Paseo Arts District is the hub of art and culture in Oklahoma City, making Paseo homes the best choice for anyone who wants to be involved in the arts. It’s just a little north of downtown, so the neighborhood is also a great place to live if you want a short drive to work. Paseo real estate offers many examples of classic architectural styles. Craftsman and Bungalow houses are the most plentiful, though there are Tudor Revival, National Folk, Colonial Revival, and Spanish/Mission Revival homes as well.
Homes in Paseo have been lovingly maintained. Details like crown molding, hardwood floors, original doors with crystal door knobs, and original tile work in the bathrooms have all been preserved. At the same time, many owners have extensively updated kitchens, bathrooms, and wiring to bring these older homes into the 21st century.
Families with kids will be happy with the local public schools, many of which are in the top tier of the state. There are also some great private schools, to round out the choices.
People living in Paseo homes look forward to the First Friday Gallery Walk every month. The galleries stay open later than usual and host receptions showcasing the work of local artists. Lots of local musicians also come to play, and the whole atmosphere is fun and festive. The area abounds in great food, from the Picasso Cafe to the Mayan Taqueria and Cantina.
The Paseo Arts Festival is held each year on Memorial Day. Artists display and sell their work in a variety of media--everything from painting and drawing to ceramics, glass, photography, jewelry and sculpture. There’s a full line up of live music, too. Relax with great food and drinks. Kids can have a blast, too, at the arts and crafts stations set up just for them.
