Tour, Eat, and Shop in Virginia-Highland on December 8th and 9th!

Looking for a great way to welcome in the holidays this year? Virginia-Highland’s 18th Annual Tour of Homes would be an excellent choice.

Enjoy a festive weekend of beautiful architecture and interior design in one of Atlanta’s most charming neighborhoods. Known for its historic residences, unique shops and fabulous local restaurants, the Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes is the perfect way to spend the day and spread holiday cheer.

Presented by Muffley & Associates Real Estate and the Virginia-Highland Civic Association, this year’s event  takes place on Saturday, December 8th from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday, December 9th from noon to 4pm.

This year’s tour features eight inspiring homes including several turn-of-the-century bungalows expertly renovated in designer style; a 1920s Tudor Cottage reinvented for relaxed, luxe living; a contemporary masterpiece reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s signature prairie style; and a fully-restored, historic Bed & Breakfast.

In keeping with tradition, local restaurants will provide food tastings in each of the eight homes. Tour guests will enjoy savory samples from neighbor favorites La Tavola, Atkins Park, DBA Barbecue, Murphy's, Genki, Osteria, Pozole’, and Noche.

Tickets go on sale in November and are $25 in advance and $30 weekend of the tour. To purchase tickets online, please visit http://vahitourofhomes.org/.  All tickets will be available for pick up the mornings of the tour at the YWCA located at 957 N. Highland Ave. Parking is also available at the Y.

All money raised by the Tour of Homes will go to support various projects around Virginia-Highland including parks improvements, safety, sidewalk and traffic concerns, planning and preservation efforts, and more.
