A warm fire crackles in the fireplace, ceramic floors shine, and a gourmet kitchen awaits you. Just across the manicured lawn is a 24-hour fitness center featuring brand new equipment. Sounds more like a luxury resort than an apartment home, and that’s just the feeling you’ll experience at Preston Lakes.
Owasso’s phenomenal growth has created a need for high quality apartments, and Case & Associates has stepped up in a luxurious way with its newest property. A sister complex to the Villas at Bailey Ranch, the newly constructed Preston Lakes is located on the east side of Owasso, near Hodson Elementary. The location is at once secluded and convenient, on the northeast side of the intersection of 86th St. and 145th E. Ave. This location makes for a quick commute to Catoosa and Claremore, and it is in close proximity to local schools, shopping and restaurants.
“The east side of town is an up-and-coming area. There are professional offices, shopping, salons, churches and schools right within walking distance of Preston Lakes. It’s an ideal spot,” said Malinda Hendrix, property manager.
Preston Lakes offers ceiling fans in each bedroom, roomy walk-in closets, washer and dryer connections in each unit, self-cleaning ovens, and large side-by-side refrigerators with icemakers. There are a variety of unique amenities in select apartments, including private balconies, outside storage, vaulted ceilings and oversized garages. “The garages really set the property apart; they are a very popular option with our residents,” mentioned Hendrix. “The wood-burning fireplaces are fabulous as well, and we are the only ones in town to offer this feature.”
The gorgeous clubhouse offers residents a business center featuring computers equipped with high-speed internet service, in addition to copy and fax services. The leasing office is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the phone is answered 24 hours a day for residents. Leasing consultants Robyn Sloan and Kelley Langford will be happy to show you the beautifully furnished and decorated model units and help you choose the best floor plan for your needs. Preston Lakes offers three 1-bedroom floor plans and three 2-bedroom floor plans, ranging from approximately 789 square feet to the largest units that are approximately 1,110 square feet.
Assistant property manager Michele Bizzell is excited about a new floor plan that is unique to Case & Associates. It offers an enclosed sunroom in a one or two bedroom option and really lights up the space with its additional windows. “We are the first complex to offer this plan and it’s just beautiful. It makes a wonderful sitting area, or it can be used for a home office or a children’s playroom. The space is very open and airy,” said Bizzell.
If you like being out of doors, you’ll love Preston Lakes. The landscaped grounds and plentiful sidewalks let you tour the complex easily, and the sparkling pool and sundeck are a beautiful place to spend a summer afternoon. Picnic areas with barbeque grills add to the park-like setting. The Preston Lakes staff welcomes pets in any of the units. “We want our residents to feel that this is home, and for many people, it wouldn’t be home without their pets,” said Hendrix.
Customer service is key at Preston Lakes, and part of its commitment to great service is the variety of leasing lengths offered. Residents can arrange leases for any number of months from six to 12. This is convenient for executives using Owasso as a second home during business projects, students who need housing during the school year, as well as those who are building a home in the area.
Seeing is believing, and you can’t fully appreciate the beauty and indulgence of Preston Lakes until you see it for yourself. Stop by the leasing office at 14700 E. 88th Pl. N. to take a tour soon.
