This year's Heights Holiday Home Tour will feature four beautifully unique Heights homes bedecked for the holidays with musicians, carolers, and special tre ats adding to the festivities.  Our featured homeowners and volunteers are excited to welcome you for the “I’ll Be Home for the Holidays” 2015 tour.

 

Sartor Home
2222 Cortlandt

Owners:  Kathryn Hodge Sartor and Daniel Sartor
Built in 1940

Most recently purchased in 2010, the circa-1940 home has gone through a complete, down-to-the-studs renovation and expansion. Owners Daniel and Kathryn Hodge Sartor describe their home as a modern, midcentury, eclectic-style bungalow.

 

Klaybor Home
1615 Cortlandt

Owners:  Gayle & Michael Klaybor
Built in 1927

Michael and Gayle Klaybor put their mark on the kitchen and baths of this many-times-over lovingly renovated 95-year-old home, which features a beautiful stained-glass window over the master bath and an 18th century fountain from a Japanese Shinto Temple in the backyard.

 

Silkwood and Milnarich Home
706 Mosby Circle
Owners:  Chris Silkwood & Gary Milnarich
Built in 1994

In keeping with the Italianate-style of homes on this reclaimed residential cul-de-sac, Chris Silkwood and Gary Milnarich contracted with Sterling Victorian Homes to build 706 Mosby Circle in 1994 on a 14,000-square-foot lot.

 

Whitfield Home
915 Heights Boulevard

Owners:  Heather & Colby Whitfield
Circa 1919

Newlyweds Colby and Heather Whitfield purchased this circa-1919 Queen Anne-style bungalow in 2009 and fully renovated and right-sized the home for a modern family in 2014. Taking great care to match original features both inside and out resulted in the Whitfield Home’s nomination for an HHA Community Improvement Award.
