Custom Dallas Home in Purcell, Oklahoma Neighborhood

Custom Built Dallas Style Home in The Christain Heights Addition... Purcell, Oklahoma

1823 Scott, Purcell, Oklahoma is a perfect buy for someone who wants a custom home... but, doesn't want to wait for months of construction and hassle.  This 2750 square foot quality home has "extras" you wont get in a new construction. 

It's a 3 bedroom, 3 full bath home with a 10 X 20 bonus room, a safe room, a large utility room with sink and a 10 X 14 office or study.  Huge diversity could be achieved with this "open" living room and kitchen floor plan!

It's over insulated.  It's foundation is an over built, with a re-enforced 6" concrete pour, and a 225 amp service are just a few of the building amenities any buyer would be impressed with.

Nice Story... during the ice storm in 2009, the power was off for several days.  With no electricity, gas or alternate heat source... the house stayed at 56%.  That's pretty impressive!

Thanks to good jobs and low cost of living, the Oklahoma City metro area ranks as America's Most Affordable City.

In compiling our list, we searched for cities that had a balance of cheap living and economic prosperity--places with solid job markets, but where costs aren't prohibitive
