June Award Home Will Host Pre-Tour Party

June 6, 2015

June: It’s amazing what replacing old overgrown shrubs with light and color can do.  Annie and Pete Henry are breathing new life into their Hartman home, just in time to host the ARCH Home and Garden Tour’s Pre-Tour party on June 26th*.  The view of their front door was, for years, blocked by 5′ tall yews.  Now the too tall yews are gone and colorful annuals and two young standard trees are in their place AND the house’s entry looks charming and new, inviting instead of hidden.  100% curb appeal improvement without breaking the bank; it’s a very good thing.

Annie, Pete, toddlers Finn & Arden, and dog “Chopper” have lived in their Southwood Park home since 2012.  Before the move, they had lived in larger cities (Chicago, New Orleans) and here in West Central.  Annie says that, after living on busy streets with views only of brick walls and  noisy neighbors, they wanted all the things they hadn’t had elsewhere … a family neighborhood with lots of trees and a home with some land and a great view.  They got it all in Southwood Park.

*Board members will be selling tickets to the party on Garage Sale Day (6/6) at the east end of the Westover esplanade.
