The weather was just frightful,
But Saturday will be delightful,
The homes are all aglow,
Let us go. Let us go. Let us go!
to the Alameda Family Services League Holiday Home Tour.
This year’s homes span 75 years of architecture and showcase the beauty and diversity of island living. There’s a mid-century home remodeled into a Millennial Beach House to take advantage of its spectacular views. Two homes are on Alameda’s lagoons, one a traditional serene family home, and the other a former entertainment house for a historic home. Completing the circle are an early 20th century Craftsman with many original architectural elements intact, and a charming late Victorian cottage.
Tickets include a Holiday Dessert Tea and are $35 in advance, availble online at alamedaholidayhometour.info, or $40 day of the Tour at the Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Avenue.
