The Annual Richmond Hill Tour of Homes will be on Dec. 2, from 1-5 p.m. The self-guided tour features five private homes, the Historical Society Museum and two historic churches. Chairperson Teresa Timmons has recently released the first home in the tour. The tour is the culminating event for the weekend-long hometown celebration that begins with a chili cook-off Friday night, Nov. 30, and the Christmas parade on Saturday, Dec. 1.
The Warren family residence is located at 330 Shadow Moss Circle. The home is located on the cul-de-sac in Buckhead North within Shadow Moss, nestled among glorious live oak trees and natural wetland and wildlife.
Every room reflects the importance of family, emphasizing many antique family heirloom furnishings and paintings which have been placed throughout the home.
The inspiration came long before the home’s actual build, which was completed in March 2004. The design and architecture kept the family in mind, and includes details such as an open floor plan with high ceilings, spacious rooms with arched entryways and a landing overlooking the first floor, which connects both areas of the second floor.
The rooms are inviting, stylish and functional. The kitchen is open, surrounded by a family room and dining room, because the Warrens like to be encircled by family. The home’s main staircase is an unusual hardwood circular, with a wood banister and rod iron spindles; the spindles are a combination of masculine and feminine features, which both homeowners wanted. The master suite includes a coffee bar and sitting area with a fireplace and built in entertainment center.
The Tour of Homes event will also include the St. Anne Catholic Church, which will be providing a tea time during the tour. Maps for all stopovers will be included on the tickets, which are $20 in advance or $25 on Dec. 2, tea is included in the ticket price. Tickets can be purchased at the Historical Society Museum, or via mail by sending a check or money order to the museum at P.O. Box 1067, Richmond Hill, GA 31322 and tickets can be picked up at earliest convenience or the day of the tour. All proceeds from sales are divided by the Richmond Hill Garden Club, Friends of the Library, the Historical Society and the St. Anne Catholic Church.
