Annual Home Tour
Sunday, September 11, 2011 from 10am to 4pm
They're switching up the home tour in 2011! The 7th annual home tour is taking you outside the city to visit some outstanding homes in South Headingley.
The Tour will include 5 homes: (map your route)
- 33 Hermitage Road
- 2 Kuypers Lane
- 4 Hermitage Road
- 6 Prado Cove
- 8951 Roblin Boulevard
These are outstanding designer homes with open concept designs and huge windows to perfectly frame the the rolling countryside which surrounds them. Many of the homes on this tour have customcrafted details like a dining room table made of reclaimed wood from Manitoba grain elevators and stained-glass doors. They boast central computer panels that control temperature, audio and electronic devices. One home features marble fireplaces salvaged from an old Tuxedo mansion. They use environmentally friendly materials like bamboo and slate. Cedar decks and sunrooms offer spectacular views of the lavish gardens—and the deer that come to nibble!
You're sure to get some ideas for your next home renovation, and enjoy seeing what is possible in contemporary architecture and interior design.
Tickets for this self-guided tour are $30. They will be available in August at the Garden Room, McNally Robinson Booksellers, Envy Paint and Design, Shelmerdines or the WAG. The tour booklet features photos of each home and a description of its history and/or architectural significance.
The annual home tour is a project of the Volunteer Associates of the Winnipeg Art Gallery with proceeds going to the WAG to support future acquisitions, exhibitons, education programs, and children's art classes.
