It’s home tour season, when both design aficionados and nosy neighbors can sightsee their way through modern abodes and traditional homes. Here’s how to satisfy your home design cravings without your daily dose of HGTV.

White Rock Home Tour 

Established in 2005 as a fundraiser for Hexter Elementary, the White Rock Home Tour takes attendees through six mid-century modern and contemporary modern houses. The tour is scheduled for April 27-28 from noon-5 p.m. Tickets cost $15 in advance and $20 during the tour. 

Highlights: Besides Cole and Jencey Keeton’s understated, trendy house, two modern homes on Forest Trail should make your must-see list. It’s the first time in the tour’s history that two homes by the same builder — and on the same street — are being featured, tour publicist Alyson Black says.

At 8034 Forest Trail, explore an eco-friendly home with a backyard that boasts a pool, fort and sunken trampoline. 

At 8020 Forest Trail, check out the floating refrigerator, window backsplash and firepit. Homeowners say the property has “Colorado in the front, and California in the back.”

Lake Highlands Home Tour

The Lake Highlands Home Tour benefits the Lake Highlands Area Early Childhood PTA and includes an evening auction at Oak Highlands Brewery. The tour, slated March 30 from 1-5 p.m., highlights seven homes scattered throughout the neighborhood. Tickets cost $20-$45.

Highlights: Attendees can wander through a house that the late Tom Greico designed and built in 2014. Located at 10219 Church Road, the property’s open floor plan, high ceilings and natural light make it one of the tour’s standouts. The homeowners decided to open their home to honor Greico, who died suddenly Jan. 12. 

The home of local interior designer Emily Hewett also is featured this year.
