Holiday Home Tours Showcase Neighborhoods

Are you as big a fan of home tours as we are? If so, you’ll want to check out one or more of the home tours scheduled in the coming weeks throughout metro Atlanta. Here’s a small sample:

Buckhead:

Home for the Holidays continues through Dec. 13 at Millwood Manor, located at 1150 Garmon Road. The tour benefits the Southeastern Horticultural Society’s Children’s Learning Garden and Farms.

Perfectly suited for entertaining, the house boasts plentiful windows, which afford views to both the front and rear of the property. The private master suite features an office, vestibule, and sitting space. The lower level has ample casual entertaining areas as well as a private guest or teen suite.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.

Virginia-Highland, one of Atlanta’s most charming neighborhoods, will welcome visitors Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 5-6) to its 21st Annual Tour of Homes. Local restaurants will provide food tastings at each tour house.

Six beautiful properties will be featured. Although different in style and design, they are all equally representative of the Neighborhood’s character.

Tickets are $25.

Funds raised by the tour will go to support various projects around Virginia-Highland, including park improvements, safety, sidewalk and traffic concerns, planning and preservation, and other community efforts.

dartmouthAvondale Estates:

The Avondale Estates Tour of Homes & Holiday Market will take place Sunday, Dec. 13. The tour features homes that have been sensitively restored or renovated to preserve the character of the historic city.

This year’s tour spans almost 90 years beginning with an Avondale “original” built when the city was established in 1926, a recently renovated 1950s bungalow, three of the newest homes in town, and a new “Back Porch” that was added to one of the 1940s bungalows.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 on the day of the tour.
