The Kenwick Neighborhood Association presents the 2013 Kenwick Bungalow Tour on Sunday, June 2, 1-5 p.m. The tour is a perfect illustration of this near-downtown neighborhood that blends traditional and modernized homes and gardens, and the diverse blend of Lexingtonians who call it home.
Eight homes and gardens, plus the new Kenwick Community Garden and Victory Christian Church will be stops on the tour. After rebuilding her home that was devastated by a fire last year, Tomi Ross has also graciously agreed to have her home on this year’s tour. Homemade refreshments will be served on the lawn of the neighborhood’s oldest house, located at 116 Lincoln Avenue. Streets represented on the tour are Aurora Avenue, Richmond Avenue, Richmond Road, Owsley Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, Bassett Avvenue, and Preston Avenue. While every house may not be a bungalow, each one will show a different aspect of Kenwick’s unique personality.
Tickets are $5 and are available on the day of the tour at Victory Christian Church, located at the corner of Owsley and Cramer Avenues. Parking and restrooms will also be located at the church. This event helps the Kenwick Neighborhood Association raise money for projects such as the Kenwick Victory Christian Church Community Garden and helps fund events at the Kenwick Community Center. There will also be a raffle to help support the Community Garden with prizes including a lawn mower tune up from Chevy Chase Hardware, a gift certificate to a wine shop, and two paintings. Raffle tickets will be $5. The Church will also be holding a silent auction during the tour to help support repairs to the Church building.
