980 Drewery Street is one of the home’s on this year’s Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes.

After a two-year hiatus, the Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes is back for a one-day event on Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Presented by Horner Homes, the tour will showcase six homes noted for their beautiful architecture and interior design. One of the homes, built in the early 1900s, belongs to an avid Jeep collector and will showcase their collection in their renovated basement garage. Another home was sourced almost exclusively by local Virginia Highland boutique, Urban Cottage. 

This year, the Tour of Homes is launching its brand new website (vahitourofhomes.org/web/) and interactive app (Virginia Highland Home Tour) that allows tour-goers to interact directly with sponsors, save ideas, and vote on their fan favorites of the tour.  

Tickets are on sale now at the website for $30. Walk-up tickets will be available the day of the tour for $35. 

Volunteer positions are still available for all shifts. Each volunteer receives two free tickets as a thank you for their participation.

All proceeds from the tour go to The Virginia-Highland Civic Association, a nonprofit organization supported exclusively through volunteers and fundraising events.
