The eighth-annual “Homes of Historic Sunnyslope” Tour returns Nov. 23-24 with five diverse homes on tap, including the one-time private residence of famed architect Al Beadle.
The five homes on the tour are within the boundaries of Sunnyslope, which stretches approximately from Northern to Peoria avenues, and from 19th Avenue to the I-51 freeway. The oldest home on the tour was built in 1948 and the newest was built in the 1970s. They range from furnished with antiques, to quite modern in design and décor.
Renowned American “modernistic” architect Al Beadle built his Sunnyslope home in 1954. This was his private residence for a couple of years. It was designed with lots of natural light in mind, and features oversized rooms and open spaces.
Tour tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased in advance (recommended) at the Sunnyslope History Museum, 737 E. Hatcher Road. Shuttle buses provided by American Valet will depart from the museum’s parking lot on the days of the tour, and each tour lasts about two hours. There will be a tour guide or owner at each property to discuss the home. For more information, call the museum at 602-331-3150.
