Heights Holiday Home Tour

Celebrate the holidays with a stroll through one of Houston’s most delightful neighborhoods and take in the 2010 Houston Heights Association Holiday Home Tour. The owners of six distinctive homes will be opening their doors to tour goers on Friday, Dec. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, December 4, 3 to 9 p.m.

This year’s tour includes a 1903 Dutch Colonial-style home on the National Register of Historic Places, a 1897 Queen Anne farmhouse, a 1915 Queen Anne cottage that will be showing off its recently completed makeover and period antiques; and three recently constructed homes, including a stunningly transformed Colonial-style bungalow rescued from neglect.

Tour homes will be dressed in holiday finery, and docents will be on duty to point out the rich history, architecture, distinctive features and decorations of each home.

Advance tickets are $20 and are now available online at www.houstonheights.org and at several Houston Heights locations, including Heights Antiques on Yale, Buchanan’s Native Plants, Bliss on 19th, The Artful Corner, Phil’s Texas Barbecue and Waldo’s Coffee House.

Tickets purchased on tour days are $25 for all six homes or $5 for each individual home and will be available at the Heights Fire Station at 107 W. 12th and Yale Streets, and at each home tour home. Tickets purchased online may be picked up at the will-call booth at the Fire Station during the tour.
