Homes For The Holidays Part 2

In front of the Arts and Crafts home of Bill and Chris a band of carolers greeted guests....
This home could easily be the best example of this type of architecture in the midwest.... certainly in Kansas City.

Above.... I kept thinking "Antiques' Roadshow, Antiques' Roadshow" but I got caught at the door. :)
Original leaded glass above.... below the home of Joanne.... whose company is in the home restoration business...
This home was built for Mr. Townley... of Townley Hardware fame. Features mixtures of wood throughout including mahogany and various oaks.

Above, Kent Dicus docents away... Kent was chair of Pendleton Heights Home Tour this year.... the neighborhoods are very good about cooperation with each other to stage these great events.

Above... the kitchen remodeling is underway but Joanne says it will be ready for Christmas.
Below, the entryway of Steve and Becky's house... one of the best features of the old homes is the beautiful use of woods throughout... this stairway leads to the second floor... which was also on tour.

The master bedroom above and below beautiful stained glass on the landing.... and all throughout the home.

Breakfast room above which looks out over a water feature and Cliff Drive below.
Tomorrow... two more homes.... 1899 and 1906.
