The Modern Home Tour attracts thousands of people and neighborhood street parking is very limited. We strongly suggest carpooling and enjoying the experience with friends.
We ask that you follow the rules at each home. Some properties have surfaces that won’t mind you wearing shoes. Other properties will ask you to remove your shoes or put booties over them. Just in case, we recommend you wear something you can easily slip on and off and with socks.
Yes. Children under 12 are free. We want to introduce outstanding architecture to everyone. Parents, please just be aware of where your children are and what they’re touching at all times. Also, babies in strollers can be tough — most properties have stairs and most will be somewhat crowded — getting strollers through could be challenging. We recommend a backpack instead of a stroller for the really little ones.
No pets please.
Please don’t sit on the furniture or use the bathrooms. Respect that each home is the pride and joy of the homeowner. They are opening their doors for all of us to take a peek inside.
No. The bathrooms in most of the tour properties are showpieces. They are meant to be viewed on the tour and not used. If you need to use a facility please do it between stops on the tour.
Some of the homes will have snacks or drinks provided. In that case, you are welcome to have them in the house. However, please leave any other food or beverages in your car.
We believe that great Modern architecture is great whether the home happens to be for sale or not. While we do limit the number of “for sale” homes on tours, if the architecture is unique enough, we will include a few. Typically, these are homes where a Real Estate Agent will not hold an “open house,” but are only opened for serious potential buyers.
