After 37 years in the business, Kirk Holt is no stranger to creating beautiful spaces for his clients. He might as well make one for himself, too.

When Holt purchased the 1938 Maple Ridge bungalow in 2011, he was familiar with the property. He had helped the previous homeowners, who happened to be two of his best friends, with its interior design.

“It’s deceiving from the street,” says Holt, who recently sold the 2,266-square-foot residence where he not only lived, but also where he ran his business, Cisar-Holt. Holt is moving to Guthrie and his office to Edmond, but will still work with clients in Tulsa and across the country. He recently sold the home with the help of Justin Ross of Coldwell Banker Select.

The first thing Holt did after taking possession of the property was to have Trebilcock Construction open up the formal living and dining room spaces to the family and breakfast rooms, creating an open space that allows for easy flow and plenty of light. “I didn’t have to change a lot — just opening it up,” he says, adding the home is now perfect for entertaining.

In 1982, previous owners reconfigured the kitchen and added a family room and laundry room. A second floor also was added, which includes a master bedroom and guest bedroom, both with their own en-suites and walk-in closets.

When he’s not working from his first-floor office or work room, Holt says most of his time is spent in the family room or the backyard spaces. Holt’s green thumb is evident in the beautifully manicured backyard full of bountiful hydrangeas, blushing roses and other flora. A pool and spa add to the ambiance.

With the help of A-Plus Remodeling, his 2016 exterior renovation included a new roof by Accurate Roofing and paint colors to go with his overall aesthetics, along with restyling of the carport with added architectural details.
