107 Peter Street, Perth A beautifully rendered sign gracing the front exterior near the elegant portico of this older Perth home and says "Pres du parc" in French and means "Near the parc" in English and presents an aura of sophistication that beckons “Come inside!” The interior aesthetic is fit for the pages of French Country Living. Inside a beautiful cranberry glass collection adds sparkle to the pieces of furniture lovingly refinished by the homeowner. Visitors will marvel at the collection of hand-painted historical memorabilia which adds an element of surprise, executed perfectly with a true flair for the eclectic. Photo submitted.

The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Perth & District is celebrating its 13th Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour on the weekend of December 1st and 2nd this year from 10:00 – 3:30 each day.  It’s time to mark your calendars again and get ready to join in another weekend that celebrates beautiful architecture, historic buildings, restoration, remodelling, beautiful home décor and furnishings, and seasonal decorating.  This year’s House Tour like all others will surely not disappoint.

The tour attracted close to 900 visitors last year, often from hundreds of miles away.  It even attracts American visitors who make an annual trip to Eastern Ontario to enjoy this event and its local attractions.  Recognized as one of the “Prettiest Towns in Canada”, Perth and the surrounding area has so much to offer in terms of places of historical interest, wonderful local-flavour restaurants, unique local crafts, recreational opportunities and excellent accommodation – whether it be at a trendy Bed and Breakfast or a 5-star hotel.  Perth is where you want to be this special December weekend. The town will be turned out in full grandeur, offering many added attractions to round out the season and Christmas celebrations.

This year’s tour will again offer 8 exceptionally interesting and celebrated homes all transformed for holidays with inspiring seasonal décor presented by talented local designers and florists.  

Not only is the House Tour great fun, it also provides an opportunity for our CFUW organization to invest in the local community.  Proceeds from the event are used to support local women in their pursuit of advanced education and contributes to literacy and other educational initiatives in local schools and libraries.  Since the tours began, close to $225,000 in proceeds have been distributed throughout the Lanark County area.

House Tour tickets are priced at $30 again this year and are available at various locations throughout the area.  More details and ticket locations can be found on the CFUW website at: https://cfuwperthanddistrict.wordpress.com/2018-house-tour/ and Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/CFUWPerthON/

Hope to see you there!
