In celebration of its 35th anniversary and commitment to conserving the beautiful Turtle Creek corridor, the Turtle Creek Association (TCA) is excited to announce a virtual experience for the 19th Tour of Homes. After postponing the original event in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TCA is moving the Tour of Homes to an online experience in order to provide a safe viewing environment for everyone.
The 2020 Tour of Homes is the primary fundraiser for the non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing, preserving and protecting Dallas’ 87 acres of greenways and park land along the Turtle Creek Corridor. In recent months, Dallas residents have flocked to the corridor for exercise, fresh air and breathtaking scenery amid quarantine. The importance of preserving the wildlife and greenery along the corridor is now more important than ever.
A Virtual Experience – TV personality Jocelyn White will navigate virtual attendees behind the doors of luxurious homes located on Turtle Creek Boulevard, one of Dallas’ most scenic and prestigious addresses.
Not only will you learn about the creative process from the architects and designers during this event, but Jocelyn's interviews with the homeowners will dive deep into an emotional connection as the owners share personal stories about their art, antiques, heirlooms and other cherished collections. This additional acumen is what makes the Turtle Creek Association's Tour of Homes such an intimate experience.
You will also hear from homebuilder Mark Molthan and interior designer, George Bass, who are both well known for their unique custom styles that seamlessly balance luxury with livability as seen in the Regency Row Home.
“The virtual experience we have curated will highlight the beautifully designed homes along the Turtle Creek corridor and most importantly keep everyone safe,” said JD Trueblood, CEO of Turtle Creek Association. “Funds raised from the tour will be used to continue our efforts to re-landscape the medians along the Turtle Creek corridor. Our focus is on reducing our environmental footprint through the installation of a new drip line irrigation system that we estimate will save 5.5 million gallons of water per year. We believe this investment is a critical step forward in creating a sustainable use of natural resources while balancing the beautiful aesthetic of the Turtle Creek Corridor. That’s why our goal is to raise $300,000 by the end of 2020 to complete the sustainability transformation of this iconic city owned area.”
