The Historic Sundial is possibly the most significantly historic home in Oklahoma City. Built by the John and Peter Sinopolous who were the developers of Delmar Garden Park in 1902. The native Greek immigrants were also the most important theatre developers and owners in the early 1900's in Oklahoma City. The architect John Eberson designed the Sundial along with the Midwest Theatre which was razed in the Urban Renewal. Eberson is probably the most famous atmospheric theatre architect in the US. In the main room, you will notice the details of his design which I believe are sound resonators for theatres. The acoustics in this room would be perfect for a small theatre. I was told by the niece and her husband that the tiles, lighting, gates, stained glass, and marble were imported from Europe during the First World War.
This property is filled with historic features along with lush grounds which include three ponds and a foot bridge built of coral rock shipped to Oklahoma City during construction between 1915-1919. The carriage house and the home construction began in 1915 and the home was completed in 1919. Originally the home was on 40 acres where now sits the Sundial, Mt. Olive Baptist Church, and the senior cottages that Mt. Olive and Urban League built for the community elders.
The versatile use of this property is waiting for the perfect future it will be. The niece and her husband added on in the 70s an indoor pool ( which is now an outdoor pool ), garage, and third living area. This would be the most flexible space for ADA compliance.
This property would make a great Venue for Weddings and Events, Bed and Breakfast, Spa, Wellness Center, Mental Health Practitioner offices, Executive Offices such as designers, architects, attorneys, street front development, multi-family neighborhood, and much more.
