Want to gape at some truly fantastic houses while making a difference for some truly fantastic kids? The first Northaven Home Tour is for you! The tour runs on April 8, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and benefits the Arthur Kramer Elementary School in Dallas.
“Kramer is such a wonderful school,” said Pete Peabody, school parent and co-chair of the event. “We’re so proud of the community here and the bond we all formed. The school serves a very diverse population and offers amazing International Baccalaureate and dual language programs. Proceeds from the tour will directly benefit some much-needed campus improvements, technology, and crucial programs. Plus, we get to show off some really incredible homes.”
From a classic ranch style to a midcentury modern, the homes on the tour offer a wealth of stunning architectural experiences and an array of artwork that befits a museum exhibit. Whether fit for a family or juuuuust right for a pair of empty-nesters, these homes boast details that offer a little something for everyone.
