Eclectic Homes in an Eclectic Neighborhood -- Presented by Cynthia Baer

CANDLER PARK TOUR OF HOMES

OCTOBER 1st 12-6PM

Thanks for choosing to spend your Sunday afternoon with us. We are proud of our community and the things that make us unique. We have gathered a wonderful collection of residences to view that will illustrate several of the values we share as a community.

One of the homes has been rebuilt incorporating several aspects of sustainable living. They recycled many items of the previous structure, installed pecan floors created from a tree which grew in their backyard and included various natural elements in the construction of stone walls, all resulting in a stylish, spacious, comfortable, contemporary living space.

You will get to experience what is possible when one chooses a habitat based on efficient space as you enjoy the condo on the tour. But make no mistake. In no way does this result in small living. A community pool and generous park space are right outside the door along with easy access to the restaurants, shops, theaters and conveniences that we all enjoy.

Many of the homes will display their significant art collections, much created by local artists. Of course, we also consider our gardens part of the art world, so stay alert to the many forms of gardening that have been created. You may even notice that some of us have eliminated grass entirely from our landscapes.

Be alert! Rumor has it that there may be a culinary treat or two at some of your stops. What would a Tour of Homes be without a surprise or two?

We are a diverse community of various ages, sizes, cultures and interests. But we are bonded by the sharing of many common interests and values. We realize the importance of education, which is why Mary Lin school is a linchpin of the community. We are home to several churches including The First Existentialist Church and the new Neighborhood Church which also serve as meeting spaces for various community events. We have a history of collaboration with the Arts and host several art-centric locations. And we enjoy fun and play in our many park areas including Candler, Freedom, Goldsboro and Ferguson Parks. The wealth of our resources, including our residents, is one of the reason so many of us have lived here for 30+ years.

Thank you for your support of our community. All funds raised through sponsorships and ticket sales fund projects to enhance the neighborhood. We are grateful for your contribution. Please, enjoy your time getting to know us and allow yourself to be inspired by at least one thing you see today!

Gratefully,
Lexa King,
2017 Tour Committee Chair
