Willow Glen Lifestyles Home Tour celebrates 40th year – The Mercury News


The Willow Glen Lifestyles Home Tour is celebrating its 40th year on May 4-5. As ever, the event benefits the San Jose Day Nursery (SJDN), a nonprofit early learning center founded in 1916 in downtown San Jose. Funds raised from the tour will enhance SJDN programs and provide scholarships for children of low-income working parents.

Each of the five homes on the self-guided tour is no more than a five-minute drive from the next. Docents will be on site at each home to answer questions.

Featured homes this year include the historic 110-plus-year-old former Wilcox Manor on Pine Avenue with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Just across the street is a lovely Carmel -style contemporary five-bedroom, 4.5-bath home.

A renovated cottage, a modern farmhouse and a two-bedroom, two-story Spanish-influenced home in downtown Willow Glen round out the tour this year.

One of the homes on Pine Avenue has been designated this year’s “garden home,” where attendees will be able to enjoy beverages and refreshments in a garden setting, mingle over complimentary wine tasting and purchase snacks and gift items from local vendors and artisans.

Tickets for the tour, set for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on both days, are $50 in advance at willowglenhometour.com or in person at D’Anna’s Florist, 1712 Meridian Ave., and Bella James, 1371 Lincoln Ave. Home addresses will be revealed after purchase of a ticket. No pets or children under 12.
