Heritage Homes Of Petaluma Tour Will Feature Mid-Century Home
This is the year for Heritage Homes of Petaluma’s Biennial House Tour and it promises to be an all day affair of fun and architecture. The 2014 Petaluma House Tour will include 6 private homes and 2 historic buildings. What is of special interest to all of us Eichler and Mid-Century Modern fans is the fact that one of this year’s featured homes is a home built in the early 1960s. Other homes open for show will include a charming 1918 cottage, a 1929 Craftsman home, and a Greek revival home built in the 1870s. The two historic buildings in the show are a Mid-Century (built in 1948) “work in progress” live/work space and a 1920s building that is currently home to a French farmhouse antique shop.
The rules for a home to be considered for status as a Petaluma Heritage Home include the requirement that the home be at least 50 years old, which means that MCM homes have gained enough vintage cache to be included – so hopefully we can look forward to more Mid-Century homes in future tours!
The Heritage Homes of Petaluma tour will be this Sunday, September 21, 2014 between 10 am and 5 pm. To purchase tickets or learn more about this self-guided event visit Heritage Homes of Petaluma.
