“The annual Logan Circle Holiday House Tour is Sunday, December 4, 2016, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
Plan to join in a tour of traditional and contemporary architecture and interior design, and the always warming Wassail Reception at Studio Theatre.
Imagine yourself inside a giant organ. No, not that kind of organ. A pipe organ. Now hold on to that thought. Each year neighbors and visitors have come away delighted by the stunning architecture, unique interior design, world-class art, and the wonderful company of fellow house enthusiasts. And this year won’t be any different. Well, it’s going to be a little different. As part of this year’s tour, The Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes on Massachusetts Avenue at 12th Street NW, a Gothic Revival brick structure completed enough to use by December 1844, will be inviting guests into their new organ loft, and, even into the organ itself. It’s the perfect place to hear the story of how the new organ came to be, after its predecessor fell – thankfully not on a Sunday – into the pews below.
We can’t forget about the houses, of course. The self-guided tour includes eleven properties at nine locations, and yes, as always a Wassail Reception with refreshments, and raffle at the Studio Theatre located at 14th and P Streets NW.
There will be wandering singers, harpists, pianists, and of course the wonderful organ music. One home, especially, featured this year will challenge your sensibilities and ignite your imagination. The owner has painted the walls in vibrant, dramatic hues, selected inviting and contrasting fabrics for the furniture and window coverings, and commissioned several pieces of exotic wood furniture that have been hand-crafted into works of art.
LCCA has sponsored the house tour since 1978 and relies on the proceeds to continue its philanthropic and community building efforts throughout the neighborhood. Thank you to the neighbors, volunteers, homeowners, sponsors of this year’s tour and tour-goers for supporting LCCA’s efforts to promote a vibrant and diverse Logan Circle: CityPaws Animal Hospital, DCRE Residential, Legation of Korea, Room & , La-Z-Boy, DC Councilmember Jack Evans, Washington Fine Properties, Whole Foods , BodySmith Gym & Studio , Flowers on Fourteenth, Bussolati Associates, AllenBuilt, N Street Village , and Fathom Creative.
