Have you ever driven by a charming old house, perhaps an historic or luxury property, and said, “Wow, I’d LOVE to see what it looks like inside!”? I know I have, many times. To be able to see inside quaint, luxurious, or historic homes is a rare opportunity, and this year that opportunity can be yours.
On Saturday, December 7th, the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce will hold their 2nd Annual Holiday House Tour from 10AM to 4PM at several amazing Wallingford homes. The event is sponsored by Fish Window Cleaning, and the houses are sponsored and will be decorated and manned by several area businesses, including Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Calcagni Real Estate, H. Pearce Real Estate, Keller Williams Realty, Attorney Lars Edeen, Boardman Silversmiths, Inc., Ferguson & McGuire, First World Mortgage, Marchetti, Brown & Bishop, North Haven Tile Carpet One Floor & Home, Right At Home, and Wells Fargo. The real estate agencies will also have the assistance of home stagers/interior designers, including Diane Hall (Interiors by Diane), Lisa Kegley (LRK Decor), Gwendolyn Rossi, Jennifer Napolitano (JN Design), and Rosemarie Preneta.
Here are the five homes that will be featured on the tour:
- 21 Turnberry Road
- 40 Cooke Road
- 215 South Main Street
- 50 Williams Road
- 560 North Main Street
Tickets for this amazing event are $20 per person and are available at the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce office located at 100 So. Turnpike Road in Wallingford. Tickets will also be available for purchase from the participating real estate agencies.
On the day of the tour, you can start at any one of the homes (a list of addresses will accompany your tickets). When you get to your first home, you will be greeted by a representative of the sponsoring real estate agency and receive a program for the event. The Wallingford Historical Society will be open that day as a respite stop and will be serving refreshments. In case of inclement weather, the tour will take place on December 8th.
Last year, this event was a fantastic way to usher in the holiday season, and I’m sure this year will be no different, so mark your calendars and get your tickets early. These homes are treasured by their owners, and we are grateful to them for sharing their homes with us. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce at (203) 269-9891 or email email@example.com.
