Traditional and contemporary homes stand side by side nestled amongst the lush mature landscape of Kickingbird Estates. This established community is one of my very favorite Edmond neighborhoods. I think the variety of architectural stylings and tree lined streets are what appeals to me the most. If you’re new here, you should know I find the unique pretty charming. It would be difficult to find two matching houses. No cookie cutters were used in the building of these homes. Isn’t that refreshing?
Construction in Kickingbird Estates began in the early 1970’s. By now many of the homes have undergone complete renovations but a couple time capsules still exist. Most homes are on about a half acre lot and have just above 3000 square feet of living space with four large bedrooms and at least two bathrooms. Formal living and dining rooms are common features. Many also have a true mother in law floorplan (a large fourth or fifth bedroom with it’s own full bathroom, usually on the lower level near the kitchen). Because most homes are on large lots, in ground pools are in many backyards. I’ve even seen an indoor pool in the neighborhood. At present (spring 2013) homes in Kickingbird Estates are priced around $82 per square foot.
Part of the appeal of Kickingbird Estates is the location. The neighborhood can be found on the northeast corner of Bryant and Danforth in Edmond. That’s just a couple miles from access to I-35. For fun, you could easily walk to a movie and dinner at the nearby Kickingbird Square or if you prefer something more sporting, tennis and golf are just across the street at the City of Edmond’s golf and tennis center. After a short one or two mile drive, you can shop for almost anything you could need at Target, Lowes, Old Navy and of course the fab shops at Spring Creek. Students living here currently attend class at Northern Hills Elementary, Sequoyah Middle School and Edmond North High School.
