Houston Heights Association's largest annual fundraising event, the Spring Home & Garden Tour, showcases a variety of traditional and contemporary homes. Houston Heights, known for its shady tree-lined boulevards, historic structures, art galleries, antique and vintage clothing shops, eclectic boutiques and coffee shops, is also home to numerous world-class restaurants. But you already knew that — so we hope.

The three-day event kicks off with the 20th Annual Candlelight Dinner and Auction on April 4 and continues on April 5 and 6, featuring six homes that display a diverse mix of architectural styles and charming gardens.

Homes on tour this year include:

  • 401 W. 9th St. – old storefront converted into a single-family home
  • 409 W. 8th St. – modernist energy-independent family home
  • 718 E. 9th St. – remodeled bungalow with a great addition
  • 1005 Oxford St. – vernacular cottage built in 1896
  • 1448 Heights Blvd. – historic two-story home with a fabulous wrap-around porch
  • 1648 Columbia St. – custom-built home that fits into the historic neighborhood

Advance tickets will be available online and at various Houston Heights locations, including Buchanan's Native Plants, Another Place in Time and Jubilee, beginning on March 1. Tickets on the day of the tours will be available at the neighborhood locations as well as at the Houston Heights Fire Station, where one can board a luxury shuttle bus that will tour the homes. No individual home tickets will be sold this year — it's an all or nothing kind of thing.
