Superb living in the suburbs

suburban home

One of the great things about living in Oklahoma City is the fact that living in the “suburbs” doesn’t necessarily mean living out of the city. The city’s large land area lends itself to all the best aspects of suburbia, while our low commute times and excellent traffic grid management make getting where you need to go easy. OKC makes it possible to get that suburban feel without being far from the action. You can learn more about OKC’s suburban neighborhoods here.

Nichols Hills / Village / Lakeshore
Situated in the northwest quadrant of Oklahoma City near scenic Lake Hefner, the enduring popularity of these neighborhoods surprises no one. A variety of residences can be found, ranging from 30s-platted mansions to 50s-built ranch-style to 70s-developed subdivisions with larger footage. Close to shopping and recreation and sporting easy interstate access, this area is an enclave for those desiring suburban living without the commute.

NW OKC / Edmond
Recent construction and an upscale feel abound in this area, with typically larger square footage and well-manicured landscaping the norm. Some communities are gated and all offer outstanding neighborhood / community involvement. Good highway / turnpike access comes standard, as does excellent public schools!

South Metro / Moore / Norman
South Oklahoma City boasts more room, more new subdivisions, more new retail, more diversity, more value, and more excitement than ever before. Similar to its counterparts in the northwest, newer construction and larger floorplans come standard, as do excellent public schools and interstate access.

Warr Acres/Bethany
Situated west of Oklahoma City, these two suburbs saw growth after World War II as they developed into bedroom communities for Oklahoma City. Near Lake Overholser to the south and west and Lake Hefner to the north and east means that these two suburbs have quick access to the great outdoors.
