This Rochester Bungalow Has Holiday Spirit (Just Ask the Elves!)

Here's a sneak preview of one of five homes participating in today's Holiday Homes Tour around Rochester.

A roll-top desk converted into a bar. Exotic woodworking and cabinetry. A 1940s kitchen with a red and white Gibson stove.

You'll see those unique features and more on Sunday during the annual Holiday Home Tour sponsored by the Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library. 

(For a sneak peek at a 1927 bungalow that's part of the tour, scroll through the photos that accompany this story.) 

The home tour is from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday and features five homes (you'll receive a map to the homes when you purchase your ticket for the tour).

According to the Friends organization, which plans the home tour each holiday season, the homes will be lavishly decorated for the holidays. Homes include an in-town bungalow, a French Country home, a Victorian, a traditional home, and a historic inn.

Musical entertainment will be featured at each home.

Homes may be visited in any sequence, but visitors are encouraged to plan their day by using the map printed on their ticket. Bringing slippers along is suggested, as all will be asked to remove footwear as a courtesy to homeowners.

Tickets for the home tour are $25 and may be purchased at the Friends Store in the library or at Dillman & Upton; Lytle Pharmacy; and Sharon’s Hallmark. Pay be cash or check only; guests are asked to bring slippers along and remove their shoes when visiting the homes.

For more information, contact the Friends at 248-650-7176.

I attended this house on the Garden Walk in June. Let me tell you that his yard is as amazing as the inside of his home. Bill Cotcher is an artist!

This house was darling and homey! "Holiday Home Tour" was a huge success! AAUW ladies were the tour guides for this home and we were busy! Thanks to the Rochester community for being so supportive of this event and the Rochester Hills Library.
