The 44th Dunwoody Home Tour sponsored by GFWC Dunwoody Woman’s Club (www.dunwoodywomansclub.com) will take place on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
This year’s tour will feature four outstanding homes representing a variety of architectural styles and vintages ranging from historic to new construction. The historic home, the Mills B. Lane, Jr. summer home, was built in 1938. The house is now home to a discerning collector of paintings, sculpture, antiques and automobiles -- both full-sized and miniature -- who calls the home his art gallery. A 1978 home in the Georgian Colonial Revival style, that mainstay of Dunwoody architecture, has undergone three years of renovation including a new kitchen and a newly finished terrace level, resulting in a comfortable, classic update. Two homes in the Greek Revival style, one built in 1978 and recently renovated, the other brand-new custom construction, represent two different approaches to achieving gracious, family friendly homes within timeless, classic exteriors.
This year’s tour will also feature a raffle of a handsome wooden bowl handcrafted by local artisan David Dalrymple. Raffle tickets will be sold on the tour (Nesbit Ferry Home).
