Pendleton Heights Holiday Homes Tour 2011 Part 2

Above, Erika and Randy Withers live in this 1887 Queen Anne home. Originally built for Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Curtis and their daughter Nellie, it went through many modifications before finally being restored in 2008. Below, the interior is much more open now than originally... but tastefully done...

Built in 1884 this Queen Anne was one of the first homes built in the suburb of Pendleton Heights. George H. Edwards, secretary of Edwards and Sloan Jewelry Company, was its first owner. Mr. Edwards was also Mayor of Kansas City from 1916 to 1917. Jamila Pree and Jeffrey Parker are the current owners and just exchanged marriage vows in their home in October.

Virginia Collura calls this 1907 Bungalow home. It was built for $3,250 and the living room is trimmed in mahogany with a large fireplace on the south wall. John and Virginia purchased the home in 1949 from Jerry and Rose Garafolo. It's a wonderfully warm and inviting residence..

As with the other set of photos all these images were taken with the Nikon D3, 14 to 24mm lens usually at F5.6 to F8 at 1000 to 6400 ASA.
