Get Inspired At The 2016 “Come Home To Lakewood” House And Garden Tour
Ready to begin a home renovation project but lack vision and a master plan? Then don’t miss the 2016 “Come Home to Lakewood” House and Garden Tour, Sunday, September 11, from 1 to 6pm and discover all the inspiration and idea generation you could possibly need to ignite your creativity.
The eagerly-anticipated tour features eight residences, a stunning perennial garden, one of Lakewood’s last remaining carriage houses and the Nicholson House, Lakewood’s oldest frame residence. Each structure has a unique story to tell of preservation and restoration. Showcasing Lakewood’s diverse housing population, this year’s tour presents outstanding examples of Tudor, Colonial Revival, Arts and Crafts, Queen Anne Victorian, Prairie and Craftsman architectural styles, each with contemporary upgrades that honor the integrity of the original architectural design.
Begin your House Tour weekend at the Patron Party Saturday, September 10, 6-9:00 p.m. The Patron Party house, not on Sunday’s tour, is a grand Colonial Revival featuring three gabled dormers. Enjoy food, beverage, entertainment, and the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of silent auction items and enter the Instant Wine Cellar raffle.
