House tours are my secret passion. I can't resist the opportunity to walk through someones gorgeous, beautifully decorated home and be inspired by its classical architecture and design. If you're like me, you won't want to miss The Southampton Historical Museum's 4th Annual Tour of Southampton Homes: An Insider's View, on May 11th. The house tour takes you behind Southampton's lush privet hedges and inside six classic village estates, from a picturesque Queen Anne home, circa 1894 to "Bon Acre" a quintessential Southampton estate featuring beautiful design elements like a double-gabled porte-cochere, round turreted tower and dramatic widows walk. Finish your day of touring and exploring in style with a glass of bubbly at the Champagne Reception and Art Show at the Rogers Mansion.
