2019 Chestnut Hill Great Houses Tour
2019 Great Houses Tour

An Architectural Tour with Designers & Contractors Onsite
Presented by Chestnut Hill Conservancy & Chestnut Hill Community Association

The Great Houses Tour welcomes you to explore FIVE fabulous Chestnut Hill homes, representing many different architectural styles and eras of construction. All of these homes have been adapted for contemporary living while embracing the community’s history and landscape.

Presented jointly by the Chestnut Hill Conservancy (http://chconservancy.org) and the Chestnut Hill Community Association (http://www.chestnuthill.org), the Great Houses Tour is designed to celebrate and share the ways that traditional and contemporary design can coexist in this historic and architecturally extraordinary community. The hosts at each house include their architects, designers, and contractors to connect you to a wealth of information. No number of questions for them is too many!
