Home Tours Help Programs Bring Music to Pupils

May 13, 2000

The Festival of Homes and Gardens series this week will feature tours of five South County homes today and four homes in Lemon Heights and Cowan Heights on Thursday.

The tours of custom landscapes and home interiors are sponsored by the Philharmonic Society of Orange County, in cooperation with the American Society of Interior Designers/Orange County.

Proceeds will benefit the society's youth music programs, which offer more than 1,500 free presentations for public and private schools.

Tickets are $40 a day.

Here are the tour dates:

Today: Five South County homes, including the Aliso Rock house in Laguna Beach and the Perry Home in Laguna Niguel.

Thursday: Four homes in Lemon Heights and Cowan Heights in North Tustin and Orange Park Acres, including an 8,000-square-foot manor decorated in romantic Southern style and a 4,800-square-foot home that blends styles from Spain, Guadalajara and Monterey.

Nov. 16: Laguna Beach homes, from beach retreats to homes with views of the coastline.

Dec. 1-2: Newport Beach homes decorated for the holidays.
