Description

This year’s tour will showcase five exquisitely decorated homes in West Akron, Highland Square and Merriman Hills. Sponsors will also be invited to a private party at an exclusive sixth residence in Fairlawn Heights from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. 

Guests will tour a newly constructed home in Merriman Hills with a covered veranda and soaring great room ceilings; a 1925 Italian Renaissance Revival-style house built by Roy Firestone with a renovated kitchen and mid-century modern furnishings; a Tudor Revival-style home featuring a storybook curved stone entry that was originally owned by the CFO of Knight Publications; a completely remodeled, 1970s-era home in the Portage Woods development; and a 1924 Colonial house in Highland Square that has been restored to its original beauty with magnificent plaster crown moldings.

The Patron Party home is a 6,300-square-foot brick stunner in the heart of Fairlawn Heights with a fabulous outdoor entertaining space and unique holiday collectibles from around the world. 

Proceeds from the Sugar Plum Tour support the Gay Community Endowment Fund’s grantmaking to programs that positively impact the LGBTQ+ community, as well as Greater Akron as a whole. 

Tickets are available online at sugarplumtour.org, or at Angel Falls Coffee Company the day of the tour from noon to 2 p.m.
