No HARVEST of HOMES. written by PAT CHECK
THERE’S NO BETTER TIME OF THE YEAR IN ATLANTA’S STYLISH NORTHSIDE to look at beautifully appointed homes than fall. The brilliant colors, clear blue skies and cooler weather provide the perfect backdrop for admiring these unique properties, particularly in Milton. To help celebrate the cooler days and evenings, the popular Milton Tour of Homes will host its second annual event combined with a timely harvest theme, which will showcase five “classically Milton” homes decorated as a reminder of another bountiful season. This year, the event will consist of four individual tours — two on Saturday, and two on Sunday, Oct. 21-22. Each will feature one morning tour and one afternoon tour. The private residences won’t be unveiled until the tour days begin, providing an element of anticipation and surprise for all ticketholders. Tickets will be released for sale mid-September and are priced at $35 each. Access to each of the homes is only available through the luxury bus transportation provided. Tours will depart from Northwestern Middle School, 12805 Birmingham Hwy., Milton. Tour sponsors will receive complimentary tickets and an invitation to the VIP event at a beautiful Milton estate on Oct. 20. Proceeds from the tour benefit the Friends of the Milton Library, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the financial support and program enhancement of the Milton Library. Last year, the Holiday Tour of Homes raised $20,000, which went to a variety of library programs and capital items, including a laptop, STEM program for homeschooled patrons, astronomy club, wildlife program, children’s music program, Lego Club, summer reading programs and more. miltontourofhomes.com
