Tickets are now available for the 2009 Gates and Gables House Tour, Saturday, September 26th, 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m. Gates and Gables will treat visitors to an inside look at eight private Andover homes displaying an intriguing diversity of architectural, collecting, and decorating styles. The exciting range of architectural styles and periods add to the charm of this year’s tour.
Houses on the tour date from the mid 1700s through a 20th century contemporary that just received a 21st “green” make-over. This special home features solar panels, wind turbines, and a geothermal heating and cooling system. Another home on the tour is celebrating its 250th birthday this year. Built in 1759 as a small two-room starter home, the property now includes a two-story house with two period-style additions, barns, outbuildings. You won’t want to miss the surprise landscape feature nestled into the beautiful grounds!
