The Community House will host its 25th annual Birmingham House Tour on Thursday, September 20. Proceeds from the House Tour are used to fund TCH wellness, leadership and art outreach programs for children in need in Pontiac and Detroit.
The event, presented by Hall & Hunter Realtors, runs from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The cost per person is $35, in advance or $45 the day of the tour. Advance reservations are recommended as the event does sell out.
This year’s tour presents eight spectacular homes which showcase the best of Birmingham and Bloomfield. The homes range in style from traditional to contemporary.
"The 2012 Birmingham House Tour marks the 25th consecutive year that this popular event has served to raise funds for The Community House,” said Michelle Schwab, co-chair of the Birmingham House Tour. “To celebrate this milestone we are featuring eight beautiful and one-of-a-kind homes ranging from a charming and cheerful, pre civil-war, historically registered in-town home to a mid-century contemporary set in a spectacular wooded setting to a cool gallery-like Rail District Loft. We think our guests are really going to enjoy this rare opportunity to look inside some of the area's most distinctive homes, knowing they are also helping to raise money for TCH children’s outreach programs.”
In addition, a salad buffet luncheon will be offered from 11 a.m. -1:30 p.m. on the Van Dusen Terrace of The Community House. Purchased in advance, the cost to attend the tour and luncheon is $50.
Other sponsors for the event include Gorman’s, Robertson Brothers, Detroit Home Magazine and HGTV.
