Come check out Zachary Taylor homes to find a friendly community, just five miles north of downtown Oklahoma City. Just hop in the car and take I-235 to downtown, a 10 minute drive. Zachary Taylor real estate was developed in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Most of the homes are built in the New Traditional style, with charming brick exteriors. Many have original hardwood floors, along with lots of built in storage, and original colorful tile work in the bathrooms. Well made cabinets with decorative woodwork are in the kitchen. Thoughtful upgrades like a dishwasher, stainless steel appliances, and quartz or granite countertops bring the kitchen into the 21st century.
The living and dining rooms are nice and large, with plenty of space to entertain family and friends. The bedrooms are also spacious, with large or walk-in closets. Some also have ensuite bathrooms. Homesites in Zachary Taylor are extra large and great for entertaining. Families with kids can put in a swing set or trampoline for kids to burn off some energy.
Speaking of kids, there are several excellent public and charter schools. They earn top marks on state testing as well as glowing reviews from parents for attentive teachers and strong academics. Parents can also choose from a large variety of private schools, from parochial institutions of several faiths to rigorous college prep schools.
Zachary Taylor Park lends its name to the area and is in the center of the community. It has a playground for kids, complete with swings, slides, and a climbing structure. There’s also a picnic pavilion.
