The 8th bi-annual Queen Anne Home Tour and Holiday Boutique is this weekend, and there’s still time to get tickets and enjoy the most beautiful homes on the hill, all while raising money for the Queen Anne Helpline and St. Anne School and Parish.
This year the tour features seven homes – including one recently featured in Sunset Magazine – “highlighting an exclusive combination of noteworthy old-world architecture and stately new construction, with impressive city views, stylish décor and elegant design,” according to the website.
For the ticket price tour goers will get a tour booklet, map of the houses and a route stop at the Holiday Boutique, which features over 40 local vendors – everything from jewelry, clothing, antiques, art and food – and sustenance from Caffe Appassionato, all to benefit St. Anne School and Parish and Queen Anne Helpline, which has been providing social services to Queen Anne and the greater Seattle community since 1982. Patrons will have four hours to view houses on the tour at their own pace and in the order they prefer.
“The St. Anne community and Queen Anne Helpline are compassionate neighborhood groups that work on a variety of assistance programs for those in need. This festive event provides a rare opportunity for the Seattle community to view breathtaking homes and buy unique gifts with purpose,” said Mary Pat Iaci, Development Program Coordinator.
The Holiday Boutique will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 5 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 6 at Banchero Hall at the St. Anne School, located at 101 W Lee St. Admission is included with a Home Tour ticket, or with the donation of a warm blanket or monetary gift for Queen Anne Helpline.
