This year’s tour which will happen on Saturday, March 7th will feature extended hours of 3 to 9 PM.  The event will include the home tour plus a Festival at Coronado Park (12th St & Palm) and come dinner time, tour goers will be able to check out all the cool restaurants & coffee houses on 7th st and 12th St, including the Coronado Cafe, Lisa G’s Wine Bar, The Tuck Shop, The Drip, plus many more.

One of the Home Tour’s Highlights will be a modernist compound, re-created and occupied by local Interior Designer, Georgia Bates.  This amazing property was formerly an old grocery store, beat-up bungalow and a junk yard.
