Have you ever driven by a charming old house, perhaps an historic property, or a stately mansion and said, “Wow, I’d LOVE to see what it looks like inside!”? 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 1st, the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce will hold their Holiday House Tour from 10AM to 4PM at several amazing homes in Wallingford and North Haven. The event is sponsored by Fish Window Cleaning, and the houses are sponsored and will be decorated and hosted by several area businesses, including Prudential Connecticut Realty, Quinnipiac Bank, Calcagni Realty/Attorney Lars Edeen, H. Pearce Real Estate, Keller Williams Realty, Harriman Real Estate, Patti Stern of PJ & Company Home Styling, LLC, and Boardman Silversmiths to name a few. Some agencies will also have the assistance of home stagers/interior designers. Wallingford Flower Shoppe and Forget Me Not Flowers in North Haven will be providing floral arrangements and Home Depot, Lowes and Kinamor Manufacturing will also be donating items. Art students from Lyman Hall, Sheehan and North Haven High School and Choate Rosemary Hall will be donating paintings and sketching’s of the houses to be displayed in each home and in the Wallingford library.
The six incredible homes that will be decorated for the holidays are located at:
24 Academy St, Wallingford (The Samuel Lewis Home), 6 Stoney Brook Rd, Wallingford, 1 Wheatfield Rd, Wallingford, 777 Mount Carmel Rd, North Haven, 1 Old Tavern Rd, North Haven (The Rising Sun Tavern) and 410 Williams Road, Wallingford
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. At each home, you will receive a stamp on your program and at the end of the day if you have visited all homes you will be entered into a drawing for a weekend away in New England (place TBD)!
This event will be a fantastic way to usher in the holiday season, so mark your calendars and get your tickets early. These homes are treasured by their owners, and we are grateful for them sharing their homes with us. For more information, contact the Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce at (203) 269-9891
