Virtual Tour Ticket Price: $25
Tickets include an intimate video tour of eight fabulously decorated homes in Greater Akron and a digital tour guide filled with additional photos. Sponsors are also invited to the private Christmas in July Party next summer at an exclusive location.
Due to the overwhelming success of this year's virtual Sugar Plum Tour, we're offering an encore presentation for anyone who may have missed it! If you've already experienced the magic of this year's homes, consider gifting a ticket to someone who would enjoy it as much as you did. The encore tour will be available the entire weekend of Saturday, Dec. 19, and Sunday, Dec. 20, so you can enjoy the homes at your own pace and leisure. Don't miss your chance to tour these spectacular homes:
- A California Tuscan manor in Jackson Township
- A romantic east coast ranch in West Akron
- A Slifko-built eclectic revival in Bath's North Fork Estates
- A Paskevich-designed manor estate in Chagrin Falls
- A center hall Colonial in West Akron
- A large-stone traditional compound in Clinton
- A clean traditional modern home in Hudson's Canterbury Estates
- A hand-hewn rustic 110-acre preserve in Hiram
