The Kenwick Neighborhood Association presents the 2017 Kenwick Bungalow Tour on Sunday, June 4th, 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.

We will have 7 homes on the tour within the Kenwick neighborhood. Jay and Amy Christian's home on Richmond Avenue have a newly expanded kitchen and family room in the back. Deborah Holloway and Eric Engebretsen's home on Richmond Avenue was previously on the Bungalow Tour but now has a new kitchen and bathroom renovation. Dawn Paluch and Joel Kohler moved to their home from Boulder, Colorado last year. Their home on Preston Avenue was built 1932 and research indicates it was owned by the Clay family. They are in progress with a full restoration of their home from refinishing the floors to re-plastering the walls. Oscar and Wendy Thornton are veteran house renovators and have renovated several homes in the neighborhood, including their own home on Bassett Avenue which will be on the tour. Their house was built in 1920. It was empty for a few years before Oscar and Wendy bought it, so they worked on it for 8 months before they could move in. It is one of the few houses in Kenwick with an in-ground pool.

This tour is a great way to get inspiration for your own homes and gardens, whether you are looking to freshen up a color scheme or embark on starting a new addition to your home. One of the most frequent questions is "what is that paint color and where did you get it?" Many tour goers ask homeowners about their experience with recent renovations and their experience in the Kenwick neighborhood. At $7 per ticket, the tour is also more affordable than other home and garden tours in Lexington.

Free homemade cookies and refreshments will be provided on the front lawn of Pat and Chris Donahoe's house on Lincoln Avenue.

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.
