Crofton Holiday Home Tour – Chapman Farm Clubhouse

Tickets are available now for A Crofton Village Christmas, to be held on December 11, 2011. Contact me or any member of Crofton Village Garden Club for your tickets at $15 each.

House Tour - Chapman Farm ClubhouseAs we drive through our Crofton neighborhoods, we rarely think about their roots.  But once upon a time…

According to local historian Joseph L. Browne, the Chapman Farm community is located on a tract of land known in the 18th century as Darkness Converted into Light, and renamed Mt. Airey by the Williams family in the 19th century.  Mt. Airey was owned by Dr. William Gover Williams in 1895 when the home was rebuilt after a fire. His children sold the farm in 1917 to Joseph and Else Riedel, whose daughter Erna married Ray Chapman. Erna and Ray farmed the property until 1986, when they sold it to developers who re-built the home again for residents of the new Chapman Farm subdivision to use as a community center.

There are a limited number of tickets still available for the home tour, so don’t procrastinate!

Crofton Holiday Home Tour – House #6

Tickets are available now for A Crofton Village Christmas, to be held on December 11, 2011. Contact me or any member of Crofton Village Garden Club for your tickets at $15 each.

House Tour - 1511 Pearl AveYou will be able to tour all three levels of this home at 1511 Pearl Avenue in Chapman Farm.

Gary’s passion for golf and Sally’s love of good wine and design are evident in the décor of this beautiful Chapman Farm home. You’ll see many interesting architectural and design elements as you tour every level, including the downstairs golf domain. Non-traditional colors for the Christmas tree are not the only surprise you’ll find. Look for a harlequin-patterned ceiling in the home office and black window coverings in an unlikely place.

Check back next Wednesday to learn a little about the Chapman Farm Clubhouse, where refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the tour.

138Two of the homes are located in The Greens of Crofton, including this one at 1810 Stonegate Avenue.

Welcome to “Santa Central” in the Greens of Crofton, where you’ll find a collection of 600 Santa’s mixed with Italian pottery and artifacts in every nook and cranny. Italy was home to the Jordan family for three years, and they brought a little of it back with them to Crofton. It’s evident in the Tuscan style kitchen décor, the hand painted village scene on a dining room wall and throughout their beautiful home.

Check back each Wednesday during the coming weeks for a sneak preview of homes that will be on tour.
