On the Market: The Spectacular 222 Residence
text and photos by Lynne Rostochil.
It’s not often that a truly significant piece of residential architecture comes on the market, but that happened this week with one of the only glass houses in the Metro, the stunning 222 Residence designed by Elliott + Associates and located in Edmond. The three bedroom, over 3,000 sf home on seven lushly wooded acres in Fossil Creek was built in 2003 for the owners, who are avid art collectors and admirers of modern architecture. Reminiscent of Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House in New Canaan, CT but with an industrial twist, the 222 Residence juxtaposes gritty, weathered steel on the front with an all-glass back that invites tons of light and the outdoors in:
The giant, open plan living and dining/kitchen areas are divided by a spectacular aquarium that adds color and movement to the room and perfectly complements the motion of the trees outside. While the view is spectacular, the owners created the home to show off their impressive art collection that includes these dramatic outdoor sculptures, including this one by David L. Phelps:

The one-of-a-kind 222 Residence is an artwork itself and has been featured in national and international publications:
It’s so exciting to have a home of this caliber and distinction in our area and it’s even more exciting that there’s an open house this Sunday from 2:00-4:00! So, pop by if you want to see this beauty in person.
